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

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.
