Editors' Review

TeraCopy from Code Sector is a free file-copying utility that offers more speed and security than Windows. It's a compact tool that can quickly copy or move single files or batches of files to any directory you select, but it does much more, such as automatically calculating CRC checksum values to speed up the validation process. It also skips bad files during the copying process, displaying them at the end of transfers so you can see just which ones need replacing or other attention.

TeraCopy's user interface is a pair of efficient dialogs, one an icon-based control panel that you use to add, copy, move, test, and delete files, and a second interface that pops up to do the work. After we installed TeraCopy, it opened with this second interface in minimized mode, a tiny dialog with twin file directory fields--one for source files, the other for the target folder--that double as progress bars for file transfers. Clicking More expands the interface to a multifile view for batch operations and accesses the Clean Up, Verify, and Delete controls as well as a file menu button that includes Options; you can also access this interface from the Start Menu. A drop-down menu lists recent operations with time stamps for quick retrieval. Selecting TeraCopy on a file's properties menu calls up a different, icon-based navigation and control panel. We opened this interface and used the browsing tool to add a file to copy and create a destination folder, and then clicked Copy. The operation was successful but concluded so quickly that we had to open the target folder and check the file's properties to verify that anything happened at all. We also tried the Test feature in this view, which verified an ubuntu ISO disk image in about 2 seconds. You can even associate TeraCopy with .sfv and .md5 files in its options dialog or during installation.

TeraCopy is a nifty piece of freeware that improves the copy/move function in Windows and adds useful extras like checksum calculation and permanent delete. We tried it in both Windows 7 and XP, and recommend it for all Windows users.

"Best way to copy files"

July 07, 2011  |  By PohTayToez

 |  Version: TeraCopy 2.12

Pros

-Faster Copying
-Much More Relaible
-Tons of features

Cons

-No long path support

Summary

I absolutely adore this program. As a computer tech, I often need to copy or move a large number of files. Windows is completely unsuited for this, because if I'm simply copying over the entire Documents and Settings folder it will inevitably fail halfway though with a can't read/access error. This program just skips over any problem files, and when it's done you can look back over and see any files that might have been skipped.

Overall this program has saved me a ton of time and headache.

"It did not work for me."

July 06, 2011  |  By jonwite

 |  Version: TeraCopy 2.12

Pros

None. It did not work.

Cons

May be great for most people but it did not work at all for me. Tried two times to copy one drive to another (about 250gb of data) and it failed both times. Went back to Windows copy and had no trouble.

"Awesome!!!"

July 02, 2011  |  By TehBotolSosro

 |  Version: TeraCopy 2.12

Pros

Make your file transfer faster
Compare checksum after transfer

Cons

no update anymore from the developer, stopped developing the beta on 2010

Summary

when you use the default windows copy handler, and you copy multiple files from one harddisk to different harddisk it will make the transfer slow as the file is copied simultaneously, with these program you can transfer files simultaneously without affecting the transfer speed.

i don't know why people said can't use them, as you just need to copy paste using the windows explorer, you could also make them only enabled when scroll lock key is on, for the help file go to the start menu and teracopy folder, or you can see them on their site, but its really easy to use so no need to use the help.

"WASTE OF TIME! NO SUPPORT FOR LONG PATHS!"

July 01, 2011  |  By velcher

 |  Version: TeraCopy 2.12

Pros

pros: does not apply

Cons

THIS SOFTWARE DOES NOT HANDLE LONG PATHS --- THAT IS, PATHS LONGER THAN 256 CHARS

Summary

Unfortunately, too many softwares DO NOT handle long paths, which is a PLAGUE. A few suggestions:: The only softw I know that handles long path in the same category is FastCopy. Othewise, 7zip does it, if you don't mind compressing and decompressing all of your files, just for the sake of moving or copying them...

May 16, 2011  |  By Tietken

 |  Version: TeraCopy 2.12

Pros

Faster than a speeding bullet.

Cons

When I copied large amouts of movie files from an external drive, most of them was unwatchable (was fine with windows default copy handler).

Summary

I think its ok for every other files but the movie files.

Sorry, nothing
