  • Copy & Paste in Windows @ DOUBLE THE SPEED!!

    Most of you veterans here might know this already, but for the newbies.....

    Tired of sitting in front of your computer waiting for hours while windows labors through copying your 10gb fiile?
    Download either Supercopier (Much better & user friendly) or Fastcopy. Google either or for download links. Perfect for batch copying also. Cant imagine how i spent years using windows without this.

    I've used TeraCopy for about 10 months now and love it. It also can be used with 3rd party file explorers if necessary.

        How to Increase the Copying Speed of a File?

        by Priyanka | posted: October 3, 2012




        Windows File Transfer System on the computer system is a slow and boring process as it takes lots of time. In this fast forward life don’t waste your precious time in copying a file. Copying File is not only slow, but also causes irritation when you are in a hurry and your system doesn’t finish copying a file. Here is the tutorial to increase the speed of copying and pasting on your system.



        Some software and Apps are readily available in the market which provides better transfer and copying of file. These include transfer resuming, copy speed computation and control, improved copy progress display, copy list editable while copying, copy list saving/loading, and an error log. The software are discussed below.


        FastCopy


        FastCopy is freeware application, which is the Fastest Copy or Delete Software on Windows and provides faster transfer of files between hard drives and copying of files within the same drive. It can copy or delete unicode and over MAX_PATH (260byte) path name files. The usage of FastCopy is very simple, you simply have to select the source and destination directory and copies file easily in an efficient way.


        TeraCopy

        TeraCopy is a free software application that is to be used in a non-commercial environment for Microsoft Windows OS. It is developed to move or copy computer files faster and easily. As an alternative to the standard copy operations within Windows, it is much faster and have more functionality than the native or standard tool. In case of transfer errors, TeraCopy will try several times; after that, it skips the faulty file and proceeds with the rest of the operation. TeraCopy also shows failed file transfers and allows the user to fix the problem and recopy the problematic files. It also has a full unicode support and replace Explorer copy and move functions.


        SuperCopier


        SuperCopier is a utility software that is developed by SFX Team to copy and paste large quantities of files and folders in Windows in a much faster, more reliable and efficient way than the built-in file copy operation. It replaces Windows Explorer file copy and adds many feature. These software include features like pause a copy, transfer resuming, copy speed computation and control, improved copy progress display, copy list editable while copying, copy list saving/loading, and an error log. When 2 files collides, SuperCopier asks what to do next (override, skip, cancel or rename either the new or the old file) and when there is an error, SuperCopier asks what to do next.


        RichCopy


        RichCopy is a freeware computer utility program developed by Microsoft Corporation to copy file directories. It performs more quickly and avoids pitfalls commonly found with the conventional copy and paste commands in the Windows operating system. Additionally, it provides a complete graphical user interface (GUI). The features are like Copying several files simultaneously, which can drastically reduce the time required for multi-gigabyte file transfers and backups.


        UltraCopier


        Ultracopier is a software tool to replace files copy of the file explorer. It enables feature like pause and resume the copy, show speed and apply speed limitation, double progress bar to general and current file, copy list can be edited during the copy, error log, collision management (overwrite, skip, cancel or rename) and many more.
        The other software for copying files are Robocopy, niceCopier, unstoppable copier, etc. These software will enhance the file copying speed and make the copying much easier and faster.

          Thank you for the info, I hadn't really considered looking for a third party copy & paste program. This would have saved me so much time, when I recently had to clear off a 2 TB hard drive.

            Heard abt Teracopy? Is it user friendly? Some of these programs look like old school DOS applications. Thats why i stick with Super copier. The GUI is much easier to navigate.

                WoW I never have imagined this was possible. I thought the speed is limited by the reading/writing speed of the HDD.
                I'll give it a try

                  Ditto. I'm constantly switching large amounts of data between hard drives so will give it a go!

                      Great tip. I have tons of files split up amongst many drives that I'm always moving around. This will save me some time.

                        I have been using teracopy for a year now and like it alot. Network disconnects cause the resume feature to not work.

                          I copy a lot of season packs to and from external drives so this should save me a ton of time. I can hardly wait to retire the Windows copy/paste slug once and for all. Thanks for the tip!

                              Also deleting is much slower in explorer. I have a .bat that I create frequently when I need to delete a lot of data at once It's simply:

                              rd /s /q %*

                              Save that as a .bat and drag and drop a selection onto the file you created. If you delete from explorer, explorer takes the time to analyize before deleting. This just starts deleting first and asks questions later.
