The new version 5.0 saw a 300% increase in monthly sales! Check out what's new in this version.

Have you ever tried to copy and paste a bunch of files that were in different folders? It can get a bit confusing! You have open windows plastered all over your desktop, and you're copying stuff here, then dropping it off, then copying stuff from somewhere else, then dropping it off -- not only is this time-consuming, it's extremely prone to error!

Copywhiz is a great utility that will add some sunshine to your file copy experience in Windows. With Copywhiz, you'll be able to pick files from different folder locations, then paste them all together, plus enjoy the benefit of filtering which files to copy! Do all of these right from Windows File Explorer.

I mentioned filtering -- that's the heart of Copywhiz! You can choose to copy only new and modified files, or copy files based on a specific file name or extension. You can also automate all of these by scheduling your file copy tasks using Copywhiz. Very useful for periodic file backups which we often ignore.

And instead of copying things one at a time from different locations, Copywhiz lets you collect files from different folders and paste them all together. Plus, Copywhiz is always watching out for you, so if there's a duplicate file, you'll always have the opportunity to review it and either overwrite or rename. A full list of files is always displayed for your review to ensure that you haven't missed anything!

Have you ever tried a bulk copy operation, only to see the whole job abort because there was an error with a single file? With Copywhiz, this will never happen to you! You will always have the chance to retry or skip a file without affecting the entire copy job!

Lastly, if you ever find yourself copying the same files over and over as part of your workflow, you'll be pleased to know that Copywhiz enables you to save that list of files to a project and reuse it again and again!

CFGuy Hi, would "Copywhiz" only work from Windows Explorer, or would it also work from "Explorer alternative" programs such as XYplorer? Thanks. -Cfguy

Techtoysavvy I have used CopyWhiz, Teracopy, Robocopy, xcopy, Dopus, x2 and none of them can do everything I want but collectively they get the job done. Copying is hard. Recently, I have been writing my own powershell scripts to do the copying I need to do. Maybe my usage cases are just too unusual.

One thing that none of the above programs handle is copying large files efficiently, meaning FAST. Teracopy claims to handle this but can't. I have never been able to get CopyWhiz to do FAST copying.

For most people, this will not be an issue. You do not copy many GB or TB. You do not have a network faster than 1G. Your disk subsystems can't handle 5G or 10G. I would love to be able to copy at 1GB/s but I am happy with 500MB/s.

Most of my systems can handle 300MB/s easily.
The only program I have found that can hit these speeds is FastCopy

Gautam Jain -
@CFGuy, yes it will work in all file managers that can show Windows File Explorer's context menu. It will work iwith XYplorer.

@Techtoysavvy - You are right about the speed of file copy. Copywhiz provides various options to pick a smaller set of files from a large nested collection (by filtering by name, size, date, checking new files only etc). This way, you can complete your task faster although the file copy speed is almost same as Windows File Copy. Plus Copywhiz's error handling, auto renaming, skipping files, copying to multiple folders, previewing etc. makes the process very easy
