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?

SoftCollector I bought this on bitsdujour in 2011 and for the two years that followed there have been other promotions of the title here as well, but no noticeable software development. I have to ask: does the producer of TeraCopy intend to put time into developing it further, releasing new versions, etc., or is he/she just going to sell the old version?
Dec 4 2013 at 1:22am Copy Link
g harris Agreed w/ SoftCollector - I love TeraCopy & want to support further dev w/ a couple purchases for friends, but are we still at 2.27/2.3 beta 2 ?

and has the 64-bit version been fixed for its "bug" of seeming to stall/hang near 100 % completion ? -- or is that the progress bar is just "lying",

and would make for happier users if it crept along more slowly --
no one likes the progress bar deception-dashed expectations thingy.

Otherwise, again, TeraCopy is the 1st part of kit that I install after the OS itself - ESSENTIAL ! and best of luck to the devs ~

P C As per my experience, 2.3 beta 2 is far more stable than 2.27. However, it seems the development has been paused since Dec 2012. Really love to see some major progress before pushing the button.

Oleg Smirnov I'm fixing minor bugs right now and will release the final version on Saturday. I've moved to Australia, developed a new Android app and finished my first year in UTS, so did't have much time for TeraCopy. Expect the new version around February.

dtouch I dont see much use of it now, as copying and transferring using Directory Opus is much faster and has almost all features of it and new windows transfer is much better where we can pause it and resume.

Overtkill Good point Chris. I too use DO and was wondering the same thing.

Is this version of TeraCopy from the original developer I've heard about for over 10 years? Since the beta is still around, I am skeptical.

This might be useful for VMWare or virtualized sessions...

Matt Hi. On the TeraCopy (codesector) website it says:

TeraCopy Pro - "More features coming soon!"

Can you tell us what the new features are?

Thank you.
Dec 5 2013 at 12:37pm Copy Link
Oleg Smirnov Will work next year on implementing network file transfer between PCs, Macs and Android devices. See our blog for recent features.

TeraCopy 2.3 just released:
Code Sector - Dec 6 2013 at 9:33pm Copy Link
SoftCollector 1. Thank you, Oleg for releasing a new version of the product!
2. Also, thank you for a more relaxed license policy allowing users to install the product on all their computers.
3. The way I understand the fine print – a single user does not need a second license – is that correct?
4. As a DO user I would like to see some kind of automated integration in DO, if possible.
5. Also, support of copy/move operations to Android devices should be a priority at this point.

Best Regards,
Dec 7 2013 at 12:23am Copy Link
Oleg Smirnov Yes, the same thing if several people using a single computer. All future updates are free.

Heidi-Ann Kennedy Hi Oleg,
First let me thank you for this program and "Direct Folders."
Been a satisfied customer for a long time now.

Yet I'm confused a bit Oleg on two matters.
1. you say your working on network transferring. . . I've always used it over our LAN network to transfer files. (all versions worked)

2. I recently updated PC to Win 8.1. 64 bit.8 core. It has no issues, yet not listed as supported.

Using 2.3 2 beta.

Anyhow great program,
Heidi-Ann Kennedy

Vivek Krishnan How does this app compare to BurstCopy in its current state?
Dec 7 2013 at 6:44am Copy Link
Oleg Smirnov Heidi-Ann,

1. It will be direct TCP or UDP transfer like in local network messengers, without using shared folders. This way CRC checking can be done much faster on a receiving end.

2. Thanks, added 8.1 to the list. There is not much difference from Windows 8. Where are file tags by the way, MS promised them since 2003? Use them a lot in OSX Mavericks.

I looked, but can't find the portable version of 2.3
Is it already available or will it be available soon?

Where would the changelog page be? Can't seem to find it either
Must be blind today!
Dec 7 2013 at 10:33am Copy Link
Donald Hellen You mentioned that all future updates are free. Does that cover version upgrades as well? I just bought the program using today's special deal here to support your development of the program. I've used the free version for a while and like it.

As for the progress bar, I agree with the previous comments that you can't trust the progress bar. That said, I don't know that you can trust ANY program's progress bar. Is this because these progress bars (usually for files copied) are counting the number of files copied instead of the total file sizes combined in the progress bar? If that's the case, is it easy, or even possible, to make them more accurate?


Dec 7 2013 at 10:37am Copy Link
Oleg Smirnov @Tortuga
Portable version is inside the same installer. Actually you can just copy TeraCopy folder on a flash drive and create an empty file 'Portable' inside.

Just check our blog, not new features in this version, just some bug fixes.

TC shows progress bars based on total file sizes read and written. Usually it's fairly accurate. Stalling at the end can be due to removing empty folders or flushing OS cache (if used). Check a log window at the bottom for a possible reason.

About updates: you pay once and never pay again.

DroidLuvr Reading back through the comments it seems some people that use DirOpus think that your program is still helpful for file copying, while others think that DirOpus handles them just as well...

I have DirOpus, but would like to increase file copy speed across my network to my NAS. Will TeraCopy benefit me speed-wise?

And... is there somewhere on your website that discusses how your program integrates with DirOpus?

Dec 7 2013 at 1:53pm Copy Link
Oleg Smirnov Take a look at file 'Directory Opus.txt' in TeraCopy folder. This way you can add buttons to DirOpus for integrating TC.

It's better to test it yourself. Will work on increasing TC speed in future months since there are faster networks, SSD and USB 3.0 everywhere.
Code Sector - Dec 7 2013 at 2:12pm Copy Link
Tortuga Many Thanks Oleg :)
In the meantime had installed v2.27 & realized it had both installs. Duh!
Also found the changelog pg

I have no immediate use for this app, but am probably going to buy to encourage further development. All these great Devs that don't add irritating & disruptive PUA/PUM/PUP to their freeware must be encouraged! Just my humble opinion
Dec 7 2013 at 2:37pm Copy Link
DroidLuvr Thanks for the prompt answer, Oleg...

I am replacing my existing HDD with an SSD and need to transfer a lot of files. I've installed the trial version of TeraCopy, and IMHO it has a much faster rate of transfer than DOpus all by itself. Thanks for the tips on integrating the toolbar buttons -- the file made it super-easy!!

So, I've purchased TC and look forward to coming speed enhancements!

Peter C1 G'day Oleg,

I have happily owned a Pro license(s) for a few years now and have one or two questions about the development of TeraCopy Pro.

Perhaps it is my computer but I have often found it takes anything from a few seconds to over one minute for the program to appear and begin the process that I had first initiated through context menu links.

With the slowness or time delay in mind - and I'm not sure if the following is at even possible, but:

1. Have you considered creating a TeraCopy Pro Service that would keep the TeraCopy engine always 'at the ready', just waiting for the User to command it and then it immediately springs to life and copies or moves files?

2. Have you considered offering other formats instead of CRC

3. Could you consider creating an official set of scripts and icons for integration with XYplorer file manager?


By the way Oleg, welcome to OZ. We're a friendly enough melting pot and many would consider us to be the unofficial 51st state of the US of A (although we have much higher rates of pay and we have a reasonably tight control of firearms) and a lot of other benefits too, for example for most of the last 4 years our monetary exchange rates have been even better than America's.

Brad Perrault This is a great product I have been using it for years. It is quite actively being developed and improved incrementally ever since I bought the program over 4 years ago.

Oleg Smirnov Peter, thanks! It's pity that I can't import my strikeball gun, but safety on the streets is more important :)

1. Yes, something is wrong, it should start in 1-2 seconds. You can try to put TeraCopy in Startup folder, not sure if it helps.

2. Yes, probably md5, many people asking for it.

3. I'll take a look at XYplorer and see what I can do.

Matt Hi Oleg.

Thank you for answering my earlier question. I just purchased TeraCopy. It's a really nice program.

XYplorer seems to be a very big seller here on BDJ.

As Peter requests, I believe many others, including myself think that XYplorer integration would be great!

Thanks again.

P C Is the CRC test reliable? That is to say, can I assume the copied file to be 100% the same as the original source (with no exception) as long as it passes the CRC test?

H. H. As a longterm user of tera copy pro I´dö really recommend buying - and supporting the developer of this useful and time-saving utility. With the userfriendly policy (licensed per user, all pcs, no online actvation, no hardware footprint) I´d consider it as a no-brainer. I´ve tried several other copy-tools, but still didn´t find another one doing a better job. There have been periods of times with slow development and lack of support, but nevertheless I didn´t find an alternat6ive. and still would recommend tera copy pro

SamT @Oleg Smirnov "I'll take a look at XYplorer and see what I can do"

I'd appreciate this a lot, cause using the user script function for teracopy in xyplorer is possible but not as easy as drag and drop from one tab to another would be.

By the way I could not wait for the offer to come so I already purchased some weeks ago without discount, which I do not regret by any means. I am glad that you keep on updating the product. Thank you!

garrett james Tried it against windows explorer, xyplorer, x2plorer and certainly TeraCopy is not faster...slower in some cases... seems to be exceedingly smart and robust. It is really GREAT for jobs with many folders, many files It seems to do a lot of its work up front, and easily and intuitively allows to tell it ahead of time to only update files which have been modified. It will skip files it can not deal with and revisit in the end..

SO BOTTOM LINE... I LOVE IT SINCE TERACOPY ALLOWS FOR BASICALLY UNATTENDED COPYING...much less babysitting or coming back after a couple of hours and finding your copying stopped 5 minutes into it. I am definintely picking up the pro copy... even better since it licensing is per user and not per machine. At roughly $3 per pc that i have, i saved that much in time and AGGRAVATION just testing out the Trial.

Software Babe I personally think that FastCopy Portable is much better and faster than this one and it's free, always. I have tested both out against one another and FastCopy actually copies/moves/deletes even if the files are locked.

Peter C1 Hello again Oleg,

Sorry I couldn't get back to you any sooner.

I'm going to move from Vista SP2 to Windows 7 via a clean install (not an upgrade) SO I'll see how the Pro program runs when it is installed onto a relatively clean new computer.

As You mentioned importing in your reply, Did You know that OZ has pretty generous Personal importation allowance (for goods sent through the Postal systems) before you have to pay any duties or taxes.

Using the Customs dot gov dot au URL above scroll down the page and look for details on the following: "Goods with a declared or assessed value not exceeding A$1,000"
