Have a look at the license agreement page, which is displayed when the tool is run.

Cool program!

By the same author(s), YUMI has the additional advantage of enabling multiple 'Live' distros to coexist on a portable USB drive: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/

FastCopy is a file copy and synchronization tool with a variety of available extras. It uses different strategies (multi-threading, buffering) to help ensure maximum device throughput, as well as optional verification to make sure data is transferred correctly. It does not use the system cache, so other processes do not get bogged down during the copy process and a speed setting is also available, including pause. It supports Unix-style include/exclude wildcards filters.

Alternatively, PortableApps' FastCopy Portable is also available.

@ripu: on the main window, click "Diff (size/date)" and choose "Copy (Overwrite)" from the drop-down menu.

ripu on 2016-01-30 23:00

@webfork I tried that, but it did not give any option. It just overwrote without asking. What I would like is, if there are files with same name, give me option in popup. Sometimes I will overwrite, sometimes I will cancel it and otherwise I may want to rename it.

webfork on 2016-01-31 00:56

@ripu: I misunderstood your question - I'd recommend Dsynchronize http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=719 with "Ask before replacing files" checked, though it won't help with the rename element.
