- Easy to use
- Clear summary on what is failed to copy
- Very few (system) files that cannot be accessed (and many more than windows will let you copy)
- Copies only one folder at the time
I have been using it for a long time, and I copy huge amounts of data, folders within folders, etc.
Generates a report of files it cannot copy, usually because the file names/paths are too long. These can be renamed and copied individually if they are important. Also has a copy to clipboard option to save items that were not copied to a text file.
Incredibly simple to use.
Can't think of any.
Ycopy gets around ALL of the problems of Windows/dos Windows Explorer, copy and xcopy programs. With these tools, Long filenames, long paths, corrupted files and errors, cause them to just STOP. Ycopy just logs these and goes on.
The ability to copy only a single file or folder at a time. and have to restart a browse each time is fairly time consuming. (but worth it). Ycopy will not run from a (dos)command line or batch file. There is a solution however. (See Bottom line)
This information would have been useful from the author, but whatever it takes. The use of the good-old batch file works wonders. Try a variation of this. Copy and paste it, save it as ServerBackup.txt, modify the parameters to suit your needs, remove any unwanted REM l(or other) lines, then copy or rename it to ServerBackup.bat (or any other name .bat)
REM Note: Ycopy.exe "automates" from a batch file, and copies
REM multiple folders unattended. It's a GREAT program.
REM Ycopy will not run from a (dos)command line or batch file
REM because it is only in the "Program Files" Ycopy folder,
REM and dos can't find it. To fix this problem is very simple:
REM Copy Ycopy.exe to the C:\Windows\System32\ folder.
REM These lines should be modified to suit actual drive and
REM folder numbers and names. Excess entries (ie, REM...)
REM can be deleted or changed to suit actual needs.
REM Rename ServerBackupBat.txt to ServerBackup.Bat or
REM any other name and use the .bat extension instead of .txt.
REM (For simplicity- only the "simplified" usage of batch files.)
ECHO Attach Hard Drive "Z" to USB port.
REM Z: is an "Off-Site" 1TB USB Hard Drive.
REM <note the quotes for spaces>
ECHO (Local drive):
ECHO "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents"
ECHO (Network "Virtual Drives"):
ECHO "\\server\sales and marketing\"
ECHO "\\server\engineering and research\"
REM <note the quotes for spaces>
Ycopy "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents" "Z:\My Documents\"
REM <no spaces-no quotes>
Ycopy \\server\accounting\ Z:\accounting\
Ycopy \\server\production\ Z:\production\
REM <note the quotes for spaces in the next lines>
Ycopy "\\server\sales and marketing\" "Z:\sales and marketing\"
Ycopy "\\server\engineering and research\" "Z:\engineering and research\"
ECHO Backup is Complete. Disconnect Drive "Z"
REM Ycopy Command Line Parameters:
REM Command Line Invocation
REM Ycopy can be invoked from the command line.
REM The general syntax is as follows...
REM ycopy [/nostart] [/noquit] src_folder [dst_folder]
REM src_folder - Specifies the source folder for the copy operation.
REM dst_folder (optional) - Specifies the destination folder for the copy operation.
REM /nostart (optional) - Specifies that the copy should not begin immediately.
REM /noquit (optional) - Specifies that that ycopy should not close upon copy completion.
REM ycopy C:\source\folder "D:\destination\destination folder"
REM This would copy the folder C:\source\folder to "D:\destination\destination folder"
REM Note: If either the source or destination folder name contains spaces you must enclose it in double quotes
REM Additional batch file information at the following (or similar): http://www.computerhope.com/batch.htm
Copies files without pausing for files in use. Prints copies of files which may not have been copied.
None that I have found.
Skips corrupted files without halting the whole copy procedure which would then entail searching for the corrupted file to continue.
Nothing that I found in my usage.
Salvation in a small program which can save heaps of time!
Highly recommended. I used Y copy to transfer all my files on one drive to a new hard drive to test its capacity, and just by highlighting the drive I was able to do it. The files transferred fast and easy. (130gb around 4 times to a 465 gb drive)
I would have to use it again to see what limitations it had because I don't remember. But for transferring information from one drive to another it was perfect.
Excellent tool for transferring whole drives. Wish I found this sooner! I tried other copy programs but they wouldn't let you select an entire drive, or they took too long. This is perfect for whole drive transfers.
simple to used and work as it work, option copy rules list, included good help file
you must copy by folder can not select by file, icon Ycopy is very smalled in start menu or desktop
The software does do excellent copy and reporting.
Tool is for maunal copying and reporting of files. Need an automated solution for enterprise use. Like scheduling.
I was having problems copying folders with corrupted files, when I remembered seeing this software just yesterday. I sought it out and voila!
This program is as simple as it gets to solve a vexing problem with trying to copy folders with corrupted files. Windows XP just shuts down when it can't copy a file, leaving the user with a frustrating task that I won't even go into right now, but if you've ever been there, you know and it's free!
I didn't find one.
