TeraCopy Pro

Copy Files Faster

for PC  Download Trial
Platforms: Windows 2000, Me, XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 - both 32 and 64 bit
TeraCopy Pro ScreenshotFile Management Software Screenshot

When you have to wait for your computer to finish a job -- especially when you spend what feels like hours staring at a progress bar, it's easy to lose focus. Especially when you're trying to focus on work.

Fortunately, TeraCopy Pro copies, moves, and stores files much, much faster than you can log on to the internet, get in a bidding war, download a game, and ultimately find yourself wondering what happened to your afternoon.

TeraCopy Pro works seamlessly with Windows Explorer, calculating source and target files to maximize your computer's efficiency. TeraCopy Pro helps you keep a clean and secure system by automatically skipping any bad files discovered during a transfer.

And no more hours lost to a botched batch transfer accidentally aborted by an errant keystroke or cancelled by a hibernating computer.TeraCopy Pro can start, stop, and pick up where you left off with a single click.

TeraCopy Pro copies files faster so you can work faster. And who doesn't want to work faster?

disenchanted I am looking forward to getting a couple more copies at the upcoming sale.

Years ago I used Xcopy and then RichCopy.
Then someone told me about Teacopy.
I bought it the last time it was offered and it is the best copy program I've used.

When problem with Xcopy was there was no error codes or logging to tell you what copied completely and what didn't. Xcopy's every error stopped the copy process.

Teracopy tells you immediately IF any files could not be processed, which ones and why.
Often times copies failed (for some of my files at least) because the path had more than 255 characters.It happened when there were too many levels of sub-directories.

govertz I wonder, does it only work with IE?
Feb 22 at 10:10am Copy Link
disenchanted @govertz,

It works as a "file copy utility" for several different windows operating systems, such as XP, Vista, Win7 and Win8 (that I know of).

Instead of doing either a basic copy:
-drag-n-drop to copy files or
-highlighting files/folders then clicking "copy" , then clicking a destination folder and right-clicking "paste" then hoping for the best.
You use Teracopy instead.

It tells you the names of files and/or folders that were copied, their individual sizes and if they were successfully copied or not.
Actually it does either a "copy" or "move" of files from one location to another.

It works with local drives, like copying files from the main "C" drive to a flash drive or a second hard drive.

It also works with copying between a local hard drive, CD/DVD or flash drive and a network drive.
Or from one network drive to another network drive.

to my opinion for this price and the liberate user policy (all pcsx, no hardware footprint, lifetime updates) it is a no-brainer to support the developer by buying tera copy pro.
I´m registered user since many years (a longer time ago there had been a few bugs and lack of support), but inbetween I´d considerate teracopy pro as the best (fast, reliable) copy-utility I ever tried (and I tried various other ones).

Pedro Laurent Hello I am long time user of TeraCopy Pro and I wonder when is the next version is going to come out? As I am forced to downgrade to v2.27 because v2.3 stopped to copy most the time in the middle of gigabytes of files or move files and leaves files within sub-folders that weren’t transfer and I always make sure there is no process open using the folders or files. This is a big issue as I sometimes realize I have incomplete transfers and I have to start over wasting time.
Feb 23 at 4:03am Copy Link
Peter Thompson I've tried your Alpha and know its not finished but noticed it doesn't show each file's progress like the current stable version. Is this something that you will change?

I had problems when moving large multiple files in the past and want something so I can see the overall progress as well as the progress of each file.

Would you also consider the ability to compare folders? I use a free program called FreeFileSync and it allows me to take one folder and mirror a specific folder with another, to update one, and to two way copying. The downside is that it doesn't show individual file progress when moving multiple files.

Andy User @Tim :: Yes it works portably. That's the way I use it most. In fact the license is very generous. One machine many users OR one user many machines.

The last time I updated and installed it gave the option to make a portable version that I then copied to my usb stick.

I can recommend this software having used it since v1 about 10yrs ago and I registered many years back with a BitsDuJour offer. Registration for life and it still works. Used to use speedcopy as well but found Teracopy more reliable and has a nice check option - comforting if you are moving files prior to wiping the disk or similar.

Robert Crombie HI,
I will take today's offer, HOWEVER Pedro's post worries me.
I intend to copy large files (70GB)

I currently have the free version 2.27
Which version are we purchasing today ?
If it is the version that Pedro says is flaky with large files ?
Will installing it remove my 2.27 version ?
If I purchase today, and do not install yet (which depends on your answer to my post) will I still be eligible for the free upgrade, when a more reliable version is released.

Joe McCormick I am using the trial version of TeraCopy. I transferred some files using PowerDesk Pro 9. A small window popped up asking if I wanted to use TeraCopy or Explorer. I chose TeraCopy. It transferred the files quickly with no problems showing the TeraCopy box.
It also did the same thing using xplorer 2 and FreeCommander XE.
With Opus 11, using TeraCopy, it did not show the TeraCopy window even though I chose it in the popup window.
Xyplorer did not give me a choice.

Robert Crombie I have purchased, and downloaded ver 2.3
(I am in Australia, should I have chosen Europe ?)

I will hold off on installation, awaiting your reply to my post above.

Feb 23 at 8:21pm Copy Link
Sputnik @ Robert Crombie

The key you have received should unlock the 2.27 version which is actually installed on your computer, and it should also unlock the 2.3 version or any future version of TeraCopy, because you have bought a lifetime licence which allows you to unlock any past, present or future version of the software.

Also, even if you dont install, unlock and use the software for any laps of time, the key you have received will always unlock any version of the software at any time.

You don't have to worry about the location of the source from which you downloaded the software (US or Europe), because you download exactly the same file from the 2 sources.

If you worry about the possible fact that the version 2.3 may have some problems that version 2.27 possibly doesn't have, you may wait a month or two for the future 3.0 stable version as Oleg Smirnov said in a previous comment.

Robert Crombie Thank you Sputnik, very informative.
You were correct, when I pasted the key into my existing 2.27

A couple of questions for you, or others -
1) If I install 2.3 does it leave 2.27 on my system as well ?

2) Which version would you use for copying an important 70GB file across a network (After I image my PC, I would like to be able to make a copy on another PC)
- 2.27
- 2.3
- 3 Beta

H. H. @customers
another advantage of teracopy pro is (using verson 2.3) is, that you can configure it in a kind of way , that when dragging files or folders a slection-menu pops up, which allows to decide, if you want to move the files by teracopy or by explorer or if you want to cancel the operation. Since it easily happens, that one moves a file or folder with the mouse unintentionally this can be of great value, since you have the chance to cancel the unintended dragging.
the feature can bei found under menu - options - "confirm drag and drop"
the new features for version 3 seem to be fine,hopefully the development will not take too much time
Feb 24 at 6:56am Copy Link
Cary Adams @Thomas Meyer... Good question. I've tried Teracopy and a whole host of similar programs, and in the end, went back to Windows native transfer (I also use XYplorer and it's built-in xcopy feature.

With Teracopy, and the others, I've always had issues with over the network transfers. Often these bog down and never recover. At least with Windows the transfer rate returns as the available bandwidth recovers. I settled on Fastcopy, but rarely invoke it.

I'd like to buy this offer, but my experience tells me I'll be uninstalling it within a months time. Maybe you have different circumstances.
Feb 24 at 6:57am Copy Link
Sputnik @ Robert Crombie

I have no answer for your question #2.

Concerning your first question : maybe yes, maybe no.

The only way to know is to install a new version and see what happens. You could try to install a new version in a different folder than the one used for the installation of your version 2.27, but nothing tells us what version will be invoked when TeraCopy will be automatically invoked or if you will have different contextual menu entries for each version...

Maybe you should try what I personally do since a couple of years : you should try to work with two different OS installed. These OS may be exactly of the same type (i.e. : Windows 8 64 bits for example) but each of one on its own partition.

The way to proceed is to create a partition for the second OS, make a clone of your actual OS on that new partition (you may use AOMEI Backupper, a free software, to achieve this) and manage the administration of the boot with "EasyBCD", another free software.

When you will boot, you will have the choice to enter in the OS you wish and anything you will do in that particular OS won't affect the other OS.

That's the way I work : a major OS in which I don't do any testing, and a second OS which serve only for testing.

Good luck.

Kenneth Lantier I had the same issue using my paypal account to make purchases on other
vendors websites,
After trying to make it work I finally called the bank to inquire about it.
The bank was flagging thetrascations because that north america state or
foreign country was on there high fraud list.
After verifying the information with them and unlocking those merchants,
they removed those restrictions.
This Is because of the much higher larger hacks into secure systems as well as
the one billion stolen from the last global theft.
So last step call your card issuer.

Mario Trzes This offer is really tempting. As long as I remember I have used Teracopy free.
But I'm using Windows 8.1 last update, and the new windows copy process is fantastic. It's a totally new experience. It is super fast, it handles several copy operations simultaneously, which can be paused individually and other gimmics. From what I could find, Teracopy wouldn't be faster.
Does any one has some more input about this?

Michael Sanderson I just bought the TeraCopy Pro Version yesterday and installed and used it today. I am very pleased with the program. It works very quickly and avoids the hassle of copying/moving files and folders that might have a glitch. TeraCopy just drives on to the end and lets you know which files were problems. A day prior I spent numerous wasted hours trying to copy the same files using the regular windows explorer method and it was truly a PITA. Thank goodness for TeraCopy Pro. I was salvaging an old failing Hard drive and TeraCopy worked very well. I look forward to Version 3.0 and beyond.

If you don't need to copy very large files or a lot of files, Teracopy is useless.

Just try it. This is roundcube install file. It has about 2,500 files and it's size is 18MB.
I use XYplorer, Total commander, Directory OPUS.

The winner is Total commander and Teracopy. Directory OPUS is poor.

Total commander=Teracopy >> Windows default>> XYplorer >>>>> Directory OPUS
