Copy Handler improves on Windows' tools for copying or moving files and folders. It improves speed, provides full control (pause, resume, restart, etc) and tasks are added to a queue to limit the maximum number of active tasks at any one time. Transfers can be filtered by file type, size, date, etc. and active transfers give statistics. The program is ideal for the frequent transfer of large files or for unreliable connections.

A 64-bit version is included.

Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder: ch.xml
Stealth: ? No
License: GNU GPLv2
How to extract: Download the "Portable version" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch ch.exe or ch64.exe (for 64-bit OS).

Note that the program will prompt you to integrate with system copy operations, but this isn't required for use. Right-click on the taskbar icon and choose Enter copy parameters to manually setup copy or move operations.
Similar/alternative apps: Fastcopy, SuperCopier

You may have a look at WinMend File Copy - which is also very easy to use.

I found this program to be very confusing. Strongly recommend SuperCopier or TeraCopy over this.

Unless I missed something in the settings, 1.28 seems to be the last portable version. Post- 1.28, CH wants to write to the computer's Application Data folder.

Linuxamp's comment above might scare you, but the faq was (too flippantly) describing the following behavior: if you set Copy Handler to skip existing files during a move operation, they still get deleted from the source directory. If you move files, they always get deleted from the source directory, so this isn't quite a bug, perhaps just a lacking feature.

Teracopy is the best. You might be able to make it portable by copying the files to a thumb drive, but integration is best for this type of thing IMO.

I get 3-5MB/s from this app. I can get a consistent 4.5-6MB/s from using Filezilla Client&Server and so I prefer to use FTP.

Anyone recommend a good explorer copy/move replacement? I've been using supercopier for a while. The features are great but once in a while it damaged files and I was unable to recover them. This program looks promising but the FAQ is really scary.
I can't trust my data to a program who's faq includes:
"Program deleted all files...Yup. That happens in this program now"

Hm, don't quite like the way it defaults to setting itself up to auto run when windows starts (remember to head to options straighta way and remove that)
