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.

"5* on Vista, 1 star on W7.64"

October 21, 2011  |  By LondonJohn

 |  Version: TeraCopy 2.2

Pros

I've used this program for a long time on Vista and it makes coping and moving so much easier, with the ability to queue up copies, pause and continue and check progress. On Vista it's one of my 'must have' utilities.

Cons

I recently bought a new machine running windows 7 64bit and Teracopy was one of the first things I installed. Sadly on this installation it frequently crashes.

Summary

Fabulous on Vista, too unreliable on Windows 7 64bit.

"Sweet as sweet can be"

October 19, 2011  |  By mikecole79

 |  Version: TeraCopy 2.2

Pros

Fast, easy, integrated with Windows context menu

Cons

Haven't found any

Summary

It's smooth, it's easy, it's faster than Windows copy/paste feature. I've tried several third party apps, and this is the only one I would recommend. If you haven't tried it, get off your butt. If you don't like it, it's easy to uninstall. Get moving.

"More informative than just an animated icon."

October 08, 2011  |  By plupa

 |  Version: TeraCopy 2.2

Pros

Good feedback on what is happening during a copy. It is nice to have the throughput as the copy is progressing. Teracopy helps me realize that a large copy is going to take a long time unless I move closer to the wireless hub.

Cons

Occasionally the application warns that there is not enough space even though there is enough space on the target. Not much of a problem, as I just click the button on teracopy telling it to ignore and copy anyway.

Summary

I like teracopy and recommend it. Additional information is good, and it doesn't get in the way.

"Very Good, Easy Use."

October 04, 2011  |  By barnable456

 |  Version: TeraCopy 2.2

Pros

Well pleased, I am new to computers, I found it very easy to use after working with it for a little while. I thought being able to transfer to named Folders very helpful. Best Wishes,
James.

Cons

Nothing negative to say
James.

"Outstanding!"

October 03, 2011  |  By mpeb1223

 |  Version: TeraCopy 2.2

Pros

It's accurate file copying for dummies. Verification of copies w/ crc checksum...what's not too like?

Cons

sometimes a bit slow but speed isn't it's function

Summary

This is a great tool. I use TeraCopy because it checks for adequate space, transfers the files, then verifies the copy by comparing checksums with the original. If you want speed get a USB3....and TeraCopy. It works well.

"Super Fast Copying for Impatient People"

September 21, 2011  |  By CupCap

 |  Version: TeraCopy 2.2

Pros

1. As the name suggests, very fast bulk coping.
2. Can also handle Chinese characters

Cons

UI could be more intuitive.

Summary

Chanced upon this software when I need to transfer large amount of files while salvaging my crashed portable HDD. It was a time saver! I would recommend having it as a 'standard' software.

"irritating but somewhat worthwhile"

September 21, 2011  |  By dubyadd

 |  Version: TeraCopy 2.2

Pros

notifies and installs some updates, at least it does not seem to constantly barrage you with a .0001 update like the update service from cnet.

Cons

needs some help in doing downloads, they are not automatic

Summary

TERRA COPY is a good program but has some irritating aspects to it. Many times it reports thyat a program needs to be updated but the update is a lower version than the program already installed. Or what my currant problem is. Terra Copy reports it has a new version of Terra Copy 2.2. But the latest version IS 2.2. I have run the "new" update 2 times, even uninstalled the program, but i still see that terra copy needs to be updated to version 2.2. This just won't go away!

"Absolutely Phenomenal"

September 13, 2011  |  By SaintSantos

 |  Version: TeraCopy 2.2

Pros

Super fast copy transfer.
Does exactly what it's supposed to do, nothing else.
Overwrite issue fixed.

Cons

None as far as I can tell.

Summary

This program is a MUST HAVE for any PC. It makes transferring all files small and large a breeze. I backed up all of my media (about 16 gigs) really fast. I don't have a time estimate, but it was significantly less than the 2 hours it took for windows to transfer 8 gigs worth of files. I would recommend this product to anyone who has a PC.
