FastCopy v3.81 Updated

billon on 4 Jun 2019
  • 618KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 4 Jun 2019
  • Suggested by pplknownothin

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.com's FastCopy Portable available.

@webfork: FC 3.60 - please update 'How to extract' section - zip package is not available anymore.

JudyGarland - What about that low level access in ver.3.54? Was it doing anything bad?

Very handy for big copying jobs. It lets you carry on working without the transfer bogging down everything else.

USBFlashCopy v1.14 Updated

billon on 3 Apr 2019
  • 294KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 15 Feb 2019
  • Suggested by guinness

USBFlashCopy backs up/synchronizes from external storage on the fly. The program runs in the background and copies all or select files from inserted media to a destination of your choice. Includes available copy throttle speed, minimum free space check to avoid filling up your drive, file filters, and can even be set to only copy from selected drives (by serial number).

New drives plugged in are prompted for a new copy profile and transfers include a progress bar. Ideal for people who do much of their work on remote computers and need to automate the process of backing up their files.

Functional in 64-bit. Note that fully transparent operations (no user notification; runs entirely in background) are only available in the registered version.

WinMend File Copy at version 2.3.0.0 but I think that the extraction procedure is a bit different- in the "{app}" folder there are two DLLs which are the same- "drag,1.dll" and "drag,2.dll"- one of them should be renamed to "drag.dll" and the other should be deleted. Optionally- "checkupdate.exe" and "LiveUpdate.exe" also can be deleted.

file i downloaded shows 28/68 on VT

smaragdus on 2018-07-25 08:28

File version (FileCopy.exe)- 2.3.0.0.
Title bar & About Us also show WinMend File Copy 2.3.0.0.
To make WinMend File Copy work after extraction rename "drag,1.dll" to "drag.dll" and delete "drag,2.dll", then run "FileCopy.exe".

TeraCopy v3.26

webfork on 12 Mar 2019
  • 13MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 14 Oct 2017
  • Suggested by AntBond

TeraCopy lets you copy or move files at the maximum possible speed. It uses dynamically adjusted buffers to reduce seek times, as well as asynchronous copy to speed up file transfers between two physical hard drives. When an error is encountered during copying/moving, TeraCopy will automatically retry and skip the files that cannot be transferred instead of aborting the entire operation. It also shows failed file transfers and lets you recopy only problem files.

Once the destination directory is selected, files can be dragged-and-dropped onto the window, even while a transfer is in progress. Once files are transferred, the Verify option uses a hash check to see if files are identical.

Note that a Pro version of the program is available with additional features.

Teracopy now at version 3.2

ammandaaaaaloriiiii on 2018-03-08 05:32

I've was able to copy about 10 GB of files from an aging and extremely noisy and slow hard drive via a USB adapter -- Would have gotten a head ache had I copied from windows explorer, or tried to. PS. 0/42 flagged by virus total, it's clean. PSS. Development seems to have slowed down but there's a beta floating that adds some features / fixes some issues...some other tools are better than TC like gsrichcopy 360/fast copy/robocopy

Although it has a somewhat confusing interface, once learned, it's been the most reliable and easy-to-setup program I've used of this type. Perfect for copying/updating files to multiple directories that are all over the place.

Encopy v5.26

webfork on 6 Apr 2016
  • 75KB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by AlephX

Encopy rescues data from damaged media when standard system copy fails, freezes and or rejects the media. In cases where it is not possible to perform a full recovery, Encopy will try to copy as much data as possible from the damaged files.

Great for use in getting whatever data off a scratched CD or DVD whose copy would otherwise give up on a read error.

I just discovered that despite what I said earlier, you can copy a single file. This is a must-have utility for rescuing DVD's with CRC errors, among other things.

One note: Fixing those CRC errors slows this program way down, so you might want to run it overnight on bad DVD's.

jacko on 2010-11-23 20:44

Way more informative than the standard copy. For a 20 GB file copied over a slow USB 1.0 - 12 mbps connection, a simple progress bar won't do. Microslop should take note.

File Replicator v1.2.1

webfork on 25 Feb 2019
  • 566KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 14 Feb 2010
  • Suggested by joby_toss

File Replicator is a batch file search-and-replace that lets you modify all instances of a file in a destination directory or drive without having to manually search. For example, if 7-zip.exe is a component of many programs in your portable collection, you can enable the latest-and-greatest version added to all of them. Simply select the destination to search (e.g. USB drive letter) and the file you wish to replace. From there it will search the drive and show a list of successful files found and ask if you wish to overwrite.

Advanced LAN Pump v2.32

Checker on 3 Aug 2014

Advanced LAN Pump lets you send files over the network with pause/restart options, automatic error recovery, even a queue for sending a list of files. Great for copying lots of data, particularly over WiFi networks, where the standard Windows copy function is just not robust enough to deal with intermittent network interference and failures.

Note: This program has gone payware. Last available freeware version available via the download link.

serginh0, I agree with you- KillCopy is a great app! I wouldn't want it to be completely portable though. It attaches itself to the right click context menu which is its greatest asset. That allows it to NOT run in memory like the others on this site.
