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, packages the last open source version as FastCopy Portable.

Runs on:Win7 / Win8 / Win10 / Win11
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download and launch the installer
  2. Select 'Extract only' (ether 'For x86' or 'For x64') during the process and extract to a folder of your choice
  3. Delete everything except FastCopy.exe and FastCopy.chm (in the doc folder)
  4. Launch FastCopy.exe

Re: the license change, it looks like no previously free features have been removed from the free version, and there are some improvements - so still worth updating if only for private use.

Version 5 license change: "It is only available for free use by individuals (non-profit) within the household."
Some features are only available in the Pro version

@tman version 3.6.3 works fine for me ;)

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

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


JudyGarland 2018-11-04 15:19

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

Judy: could you post a screenshot in forums? The dev sometimes checks in on our site.

v 3.54 tries a 'low level access' to my hdd. Previous versions did not show this behaviour. This 'new feature' is not mentioned on release notes.

Thanks zorro. Updated entry.

The newly introduced installer writes to the registry when choosing "extract only" (key: HKCU\Software\HSTools)
