I know at times you may have wondered the slowness of file copying using windows file explorer..

Its time to switch to TeraCopy...!!!

TeraCopy for Microsoft Windows - Code Sector


Just try it out .. i have had 30 % increase in file copying speed when i copy files from hard disk to usb drive.. and i even got max speed of 30MB/s using Sony SD cards (its max speed is 30 MB/s).

FYI, I'm using the free version and perfectly happy with it..

Don't these Fast-Copying applications cause certain level of physical damage to the storage device ???
I find my WIndows 8 file copying mechanism good enough.

All this file copier uses a mechanism for copying speed...which default windows copy doesn't.

like if u cancel copying in windows it will cancel all the file copied..but in case of Teracopy chunk of file remains...

also copying speed also depends on Hardware...like we see in SSD

Thanks NanduCob. That's an interesting article.
Will give a try on Fastcopy.
ah..that was easy:D

Fast copy utilises the full potential during transfers from pc to my classless(lol) Sdmmc,whereas the windows default copy lags and gets stucks alot.
