    "GSCopy Pro v6.0"

    November 14, 2013  |   By appel01

    Version: TeraCopy 2.27

    Pros

    (RoboCopy Alternative) with Open File Agent

    Cons

    It can easily be scheduled to run as a scheduled task and fully automated. GSCopyPro also comes with an open file agent which can copy files that are locked/ opened by other processes. This feature is supported in all windows vSCersions from widows XP/ 2003 and later.

    Summary

    GSCopyPro is a single command-line tool (CLI) that can copy, replicate and move files from one folder to another. This folder can be on the same machine/ server or another server elsewhere. What makes GSCopyPro stand out from other competitors is the fact it works on 32-bit as well as 64-bit systems and has no restrictions.

    "Good idea, doesn't work."

    July 26, 2013  |   By ddonuts4

    Version: TeraCopy 2.27

    Pros

    In theory, this will speed up and optimize file transfers, and actually does speed up transfers when it works
    Much more detailed info
    In theory, you can pause and resume file transfers

    Cons

    Hangs when transferring large files
    When you pause transfers, you cannot resume
    You cannot cancel file transfers
    Glitches out when copying files anywhere except between explorer windows, naming files odd things and sometimes not copying at all.

    "Nice software application with an issue"

    June 14, 2013  |   By P_janny

    Version: TeraCopy 2.27

    Pros

    Application is very helpful for copying files, especially multiple files at a time.

    Cons

    The only con what I found so far is it hangs a lot while copying large-sized files and sometimes it crashes.

    Summary

    According to me it's a good application, truly. After all it is free and works great.

    "Works great usually but needs updating badly"

    May 16, 2013  |  

    Version: TeraCopy 2.27

    Pros

    When it works which is 80% of the time it's a great program.

    Cons

    Often hangs on one file permanently. It's been that way with no fixes. Is this thing abandoned?

    "Not very stable"

    April 2, 2013  |   By PrashantGogoi

    Version: TeraCopy 2.27

    Pros

    - Decent speeds
    - Integrates seamlessly with Explorer
    - User friendly UI

    Cons

    - Crashes with large files

    Summary

    TeraCopy would have been an excellent product had it been a little more stable.
    I have been using it for the last one year and though I enjoy using it, its unstability has led me to other file copiers. With small files (<1GB), TeraCopy works like a charm and I would happily say without doubt that it is the best. A great UI, a seamless explorer integration and decent speeds - TeraCopy got it all. However, it is with large files (>1GB) and especially operations from internal drive to external drive where TeraCopy is clueless at times. At times these crashes were so bad that my system stopped recognizing my external drive. I needed to unplug and plug in the external drive again to make explorer see it. Worse, a couple of times I had to reformat my external drive.
    Though CNET has given TeraCopy a 5 star rating, I do not agree with them. Yes, with smaller files it is really good and is really easy to use. But with larger files I would suggest more stable file copiers like SuperCopier or FastCopy.

    "Mediocre, might even be useless."

    March 21, 2013  |   By TheTD80

    Version: TeraCopy 2.27

    Pros

    Gives an option to use it or the windows default copy handler.

    Cons

    Might contain contain malicious registry items.

    Summary

    With all the nice reviews, I thought I'd give it a try. Right after install I ran a smartscan with IOBit Malwarefighter and it found 15 malicious registry items.
    It is not that fast if you have i7 core, 64bit system and 8Gb DDR3 ram 1600Mhz. I didn't notice any speedups. I guess its for crappy systems.

    "Doesn't copy large files in Windows8 64bit."

    February 6, 2013  |   By Bradley_T

    Version: TeraCopy 2.27

    Pros

    As a loyal Teracopy'ist for ~6years I like this program. It defined this space.
    I write this as to it's abilities in Windows8 64bit.
    Now it will deal with small files efficiently, and do error checking. Copies with issues can be dealt with at the end without a total loss of a copy operation. The key benefit of this program. The one that redefined this space.

    Cons

    It will not copy large files now. It hangs and dies a horrible death.

    It is not multithreaded. An issue for large file lists or copying a whole 1TB drive to a new one.

    Only CRC hash tags are calculated for file verification. This seems to be more than the most of the file copiers out there, although this is difficult to look into as each program usually doesn't say what algorithm they use. It is simply said they verify. A more extensive error checking algorithm list would be great. Perhaps the option of MD5 or higher? For a nice hash tag calculator and checker look at ExactFile, a great little program.

    Summary

    Stay away if you have Windows 8 64bit.

    Please fix this Code Sector. You made a great product.


    There are new programs out now that do alot more. I still like the ability to see the file list, and see if there where errors.
    I've now switched to Nicecopier. It seems stable in Windows8. And it performs a file verification.

    For a complete review of the landscape check out:
    http://www.raymond.cc/blog/12-file-copy-software-tested-for-fastest-transfer-speed/
    Of these Rich copier 4 will not work in Win8 64bit.
    I also tried FastCopy ver2.11. It couldn't handle the file list I threw at it, but it would be great for copying alot of small files.
    Finally Extreme Copy also seemed to be a good option, but Nicecopier is working well for me.

    To copy a whole hard drive I'm now using Acronis True Image 2013. Its stable and no errors when I check it with ExactFile. Exact file is a great hash tag calculator.
