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.

@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.

@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.

R-Undelete Home v6.2.169945 Updated

R-Undelete recovers files from external USB disks, digital photo and video camera memory cards and other devices with the FAT (FAT12, FAT16, FAT32 and exFAT) file system. In addition, it also uses the scan for known file types, which makes R-Undelete an ideal solution for the recovery of lost digital photos, movies and music.

Note: the majority of Windows storage solutions use NTFS and ReFS, which can only be recovered with the pro version.

It's obvious to me that the version history is lagging behind seeing that the last entry is for
5.1 build 165337 Thu Feb 09, 2017 12:24 pm

As for v6.1 build 169323 - the date released on their site is Jul 23 2017 - I always try to give the link that my comment(s) refer to in order to make your job easier.

From their website: R-Undelete run in the free Home mode has no limitations for recovery from FAT partitions and also allows you to evaluate how the software recovers lost files from the NTFS file system, for which it has a limitation to recover files larger than 64KB. [filelist] can be previewed to estimate recovery chances before you upgrade the Home version for recovery from NTFS partitions

Seems that recovery from NTFS costs money and thus makes this application almost useless today.

It's a real pity that the newer versions (aka 1.2.0 onwards) aren't portable, because the whole interface has been wonderfully overhauled and a whole slew of new features have been implemented. According to https://github.com/mypaint/mypaint/issues/91, the developers basically have no interest in making this portable.

Update: please see the forum topic for details on getting the latest MyPaint (1.2.0) portabilised via the X-MyPaint launcher.
