    TeraCopy writes data in big chunks and then trims the file to original size. Perhaps antivirus locks files and prevents trimming.. Please test this version. BTW empty file ‘Portable’ will switch TC to portable mode (disable writing to Application Data).

  • http://EMPulseGaming.com Kane3162

    I normally use batch files for network copying (i use an admin station to start the batch file on all 30 PC’s), is their a way I can use TeraCopy instead of batch files? or a way to make it use TeraCopy instead of the standard FTP (not meant in its actual definition) IE CMD entry’s i can use??

    Thanks

  • rei

    Using May 31 nightly Pro license with W7 x86 RC, the target destination for “copy to/move to” options get messed up with weird characters like }\
    and or other random junk characters. Any ideas?

  • http://mai9.net mai9

    @Kane3162
    reading the file “Directory Opus.txt” you can read the instruction used, try messing with it and you’ll probably succeed ;)

    %ProgramFiles%\TeraCopy\TeraCopy.exe Copy *{allfilepath|filem} {destpath}

  • Jak

    i have seen that when teracopy is the default copy handler and files from recycle bin are dragged into a folder on the pc,(not restored), the file names change into a garbage value from their actual names..it would be easier to identify them if they remained same when copy pasting into some folder after deleting a file.
    also, if a copy from, say a network lan drive is started along with a local copy to a disk, only one will progress at a time, even though effectively both could be going at the same time without dropping performance rates as the ethernet speeds or wireless speeds are much lesser than what a SATA or IDE can handle, in this context can there be a provision that teracopy checks the position of file and accordingly copies multiple files at a time or just one?..

  • Pas B

    @Jeff
    Thank you for the response. I downloaded the latest nightly from the link above on this page [Version 2.0 nightly build (May 31)] and tried installing it. While the downloaded files scanned clean with AVG and MalwareBytes Anti-Malware, upon installing, AVG 8.0 flagged the executable as infected. I understand from earlier comments that this may be a false positive, but I’m just not comfortable proceding at this point. If/When that issue gets cleared up, I may give TeraCopy another go.

    I am curious, though. I only observed executables encountering the problem I described. Per your hypothesis, that would mean that the anti-virus program causing the problem is only locking up executables or some subclass of files that it identifies for different handling (as opposed to, say, text files, JPG files, etc.)?

  • Anon

    I do not think that the issue will ever get cleared. The anti-virus are flagging the file due to the packer being used. Of course only executable files will be flagged, since only they are “executed”. Other files are “interpreted”.

  • Logan

    @ Pas B
    Try updating to AVG 8.5 (Free Edition linked below)
    http://download.avgfree.com/filedir/inst/avg_free_stf_en_85_339a1525.exe

    Or use a better AV such as Avira!
    Avira AntiVir Personal – FREE Antivirus Version: 9.0.0.394

    Or as stated You can turn off heuristic scanning or add exception for TC

    I had 2.0b4 previously installed.

    I installed Windows on a new drive (due to disk crash) and installed this new 5-31 version instead.

    The only annoyance is that now I cannot get TeraCopy to default to stay open after a successful operation (I prefer to verify that the CRC’s checked myself personally, since I have known running applications to simply vanish without a trace on occasion, so closing by itself does not indicate “success” to me).

    The new version always come up with “Close” in bold, whereas previously I did not have to manually click it each time. Am I missing something, or had the default changed ?

  • Silver

    I seem to have some issue with dragging and dropping files into Teracopy GUI on Vista Home Premium. No matter what files I dragged into it, nothing happens even though the “drag & drop” icon is showing as I do it. Actually, thinking about it, it might have been a Vista problem as many apps that I used to use which I can just dragged and dropped files into no longer works. even when I had already elevated the permissions.

  • http://noweb fardeen

    thank u for new version. the Progress indicator in Windows 7 Taskbar is wonderful nice job. but i would like a better way for teracopy to manage all its windows that is open right now it is not working fine. why not have a tab feature that groups all teracopy copy windows and the user can easily select which windows to start resume or pause. a bit like messenger plus does with windo0ws live messenger for tabbed chats. that would be awesome. and also is it possible to change how teracopy looks? make it a little more pretty for vista and windows 7 user for the final version. and most important please fix the uac prompt before each file copy or move. it is annoying to click uac prompt each time when i simply have to move a file from one drive to another. and these files aren’t even system file. i prefered the run as admin option better as previous version had. it will dramatically reduce any annoyance, and u could make only files that is copied to c:windows or c:program files require UAC prompt, or u could make exe extention require uac. the rest normal files could be copied without these admin priviledge. for xp users it is oaky but for us vista or windows 7 user it is annoying. and i don’t want to turn my uac off. so natively if u could have this feature teracopy would be so much better. thanks a lot and keep on the food job. any chance we have a final nightly build like an RC version of teracopy before it gets final?

  • http://noweb fardeen

    typing mistake good job instead of food job. ops

    Great app, can’t see my work on PC without it. Cheking everyday for new releases. Thanx !

  • http://mai9.net mai9

    I still see the fragmentation problem in the May 31 build. It really is important for me to get it fix.

    here’s the users’ quest for it:

    http://blog.codesector.com/2008/12/27/teracopy-2-nightly-builds/#comment-1251

    It bothers me a lot that the original copy from windows doesn’t fragmentate, but TeraCopy does. (I checked that myself).

    Thanks Jeff for the program. And please, please, please: check this!

  • Aarynb

    I’m also hoping for the fragmentation problem to be fixed; I just tried the application today and while the home version is free, I love it so much that I plan on purchasing it in the future to support it (though with the size of files I move around on my storage drive, the fragmentation issue is highly problematic)

  • http://www.codesector.com Jeff

    I’ve added SetFileValidData function yesterday, so there should be less problems with fragmented files. Also copying big files on flash drive seems to be little faster. I’ll post the new version in a few days.

  • http://kenstuart.blogspot.com Ken

    ” Changed: When moving, source files are deleted immediately (after comparing size). ”

    Jeff, can you clarify what this means exactly ?

    And, also please respond concerning the change in behavior between 2b4 and 5-31 in terms of closing by default, and whether is a hidden option to change that back. Thanks!

  • Eka-X

    in May 31 build, TeraCopy can’t move file in same drive instant like windows’ move funtion.
    eg. I want to move “google.mp4″ in f:\temp to f:\news, If I use Windows’ move funtion it only change in file index. But if I use TeraCopy to move my file, it move all file. It much slower than Windows’

  • sparky

    Does TC generate an instance-specific or on-going log of copy/move activity? If yes, great and I will look closer to find it. If not, well, this would be a great addition!!

    well, not on my pc, here it still works like always, just changes file index, not copying the whole file! don’t know where the glitch is in your case..

    True :) Just uploaded the new build.

    ” Changed: When moving, source files are deleted immediately (after comparing size).” – Previous version deleted source files only after copying all files. I’ll add option to switch to this behavior.

    TC now always closes if no errors occurs. /NoClose switch can be used from command line.

    It should move file instantly. Check that file isn’t locked by another process.

    Thank you
    maybe it’s because I move file in another process and do this operation.

  • http://noweb fardeen

    this new seem faster still it has not reduce the annoying uac prompt every time by running the admin. jeff what are u doing man. its really annoying to use teracopy in vista or windows 7 unless u disable uac. moving simple files or copying files requires admin priviledge now. please change that. add the option run as admin back please its rare that we actually need to move system or program files etc. only in these instances will we need admin. make it as it was before. it was better. thats feedback man!!! also there is a little bug i think sometimes copying files just feezes for no reason. then i have to cancel and try again. it does not happen all the time but it does happen. i dont think teracopy is complete to be released as a final version this month. new nighty builds yes but not final.

  • http://noweb fardeen

    also sometimes teracopy wrongly shows the copying speed sometimes. copy files sometimes make the speed becomes 125mb/s for a few seconds which is false especially on my usb drive whose max speed is only 10mb/s

  • http://kenstuart.blogspot.com Ken

    TC now always closes if no errors occurs. /NoClose switch can be used from command line.

    To be consistent with other options, “NoClose” should also be an .ini file option as well.

  • http://kenstuart.blogspot.com Ken

    In fact, when TeraCopy is started from Context Menu or Drag-and-Drop, doesn’t it run from DLL and not command line at all ?

  • http://kenstuart.blogspot.com Ken

    Also, a needed feature for PRO is a user-defined target folder in the context menu.

  • Poster

    Hello. Any chance of having TeraCopy remember it’s window position ? No matter how I close it (either from the menu or the (X)) it always opens up on monitor 1 ~55% down the screen.

  • http://kenstuart.blogspot.com Ken

    @Poster
    The window position can be changed in the .INI file.

  • CedFlow

    and for multilingue version ??

    Check these two links which I got from the news for TeraCopy 2.0 beta 4a @ http://blog.codesector.com/2008/08/02/teracopy-20-beta-4/

    2 solutions to disable UAC for TeraCopy only:

    Disable UAC for certain applications

    Why wait for Windows 7? Get a better UAC now

  • http://noweb fardeen

    i don’t want to complicate things just want it to integrated with some kind of UAC fix. the run as admin was perfect don’t know why they removed it. i also use windows 7 so it is the better UAC

  • Prasad

    @vt
    I have tried both those so-called UAC fixes,and I can tell you they do not work especially on Windows 7.

  • http://www.codesector.com Jeff

    TC runs as admin only if you copy to UAC-protected folders (\Program Files, \Windows and root of drive).

    Just installed bug tracker at http://bugs.codesector.com.

  • http://kenstuart.blogspot.com Ken

    Jeff, thanks for the latest June 16 version with NoClose as .ini file option and long path name handling.
    The only question is what is the new behavior of TeraCopy if MaxPathLimit is 1 and what is the behavior if it is 0. In other words, what does it do when it encounters an excessively long path ?

  • http://www.codesector.com Jeff

    If MaxPathLimit=1, TC will not copy files if destination path longer than 255 characters (marks as error and skip these files). If set to 0, TC will copy all files (not recommended for WinXP, better use with Windows 7).

  • Sevan

    Umm… not sure if I’m not looking in the right place, but the download link is still pointing to the June 10 installer (and the filesize is the same… so I’m assuming it’s not the new “June 16″ version).

    If you could update the link, that’s be great :)

  • http://kenstuart.blogspot.com Ken

    I think that it is the same link every time, and the changes were small enough not to change the file size.

  • sparky

    If you bother to run an md5 or sha1 hash on the two files, you’ll see that they are different.

    Is anyone having a problem installing the nightlies on Vista Home Premium?

  • Sevan

    The download links at:

    http://www.codesector.com/files/teracopy2nightly.exe &
    http://www.teracopy.com/files/teracopy2nightly.exe

    point to two different files (with the http://www.teracopy.com/…/ having the June 16th and the codesector.com/…/ which is the link in this post pointing to the June 10th version). The installer says very clearly what version you are installing when you run it. The June 16th identifies itself as such in the text at the beginning of the installer. If anyone wanted to check out the new build you can get it at the teracopy.com… address until Jeff has a chance to double check that both links are pointing to the same version of the file.

  • http://www.codesector.com Jeff

    Looks like cache working somewhere. You can fool it by adding “?anything” after URL, e.g., try this link http://www.codesector.com/files/teracopy2nightly.exe?asd

  • Andrew

    Minor bugs (using XP): If I copy a file in the same folder the standard windows name is “Copy of X” or “Copy (2) of X” not “X_2″ or “X_3″. Also when I copy/move a file into a window or desktop, the icon of the copy should stay where I drop it, but TC puts it in the next “free icon space” not the position where I wanted it. Another issue, if I change desktop size (laptop/large screen) then TC may open beyond/off the screen if it was there before. I remember a program like this for MacOS years ago and it’s nice to have a windows version.

  • LeKing

    Some folks say they notice that teracopy is slower than vista : I encounter the same behaviour, copying from one LacieBigdisk to another, on daisy chain with firewire ; vista was more than three time faster. I was using 1.22, so I drag the cursor to 20Mo, it raised the speed four times! teracopy becamed 20% faster than vista. Continue experiencing leaded me to drag the cursor back, 10Mo, 2MO, 1Mo, right functiun ; I attempted to drag to 256Ko, the initial setting, and “splash”, vista told me teracopy was crashed, and “click on this button to close it”. Reducing buffer size “on the fly” is very “dangerous” ; a fix that could be easy done : desabling dragging cursor below 1Mo when a copy/move is perform. I tried pro version a few hours later, till registration informations were pending for a while, and then “oh, no!No cursor!” I red the comments, aha, there is an ini. file : a value of 250Ko is set for operating from two physical drives! I put 20480 instead : speed increased two times and a half ; not four times, because it was on a file that o&odefrag was infinetly trying to defrag. My idea was to copy it to another drive, and backing it to its original location to resolve the fragmentation by another method. It did not success, because file was “locked”, if I have understood correctly what Jeff replies to one who complains that moving into a same drive is a slow task with Teracopy.
    I installed “unlocker”, as Jeff suggested : what a good soft ; I managed to erased a flashware plugin that vista refused to delete, telling me “the files are open in another application”. Those files were not in use!!! But they were “locked”. Rebooting never changed anything ; but “unlocker” yes! It put those files into recycler, and then, they were “magically” “unlocked”!!! I can do what I want with those files, including restoring to their location, and they remain “unlocked”.
    It seems confusing that files become “locked”, and never “unlocked”, even after reboot of PC. I found out windows is little bugy, and let a file “locked” after a crash of an application : a file I was downloading was “locked” after the crash of the downloader accelerator. O&Odefrag keeped on infinetely trying to move this file, noway! I restart the downloader accelerator “bingo”, when the file got finished, O&Odefrag got suddenly able to manage the file! xp sp3 involve functiunality vista-like, so applications become owner of their files, till they say to windows : “ok, you can do what you want, I terminated the job!”. If the application never resumes its job because you found out to definitively uninstall it : missed, the file can be deleted, if read-only flag is not set, but if set, noway to erase the file, move its chunks with a defrag utility, and so on… Fortunately, “unlocker” resolves the problem, thanks to Jeff who told us to check this “great” freeware!!!
    For myself, I use O&Odefrag to locate “locked” chunks, and I double-click on one chunk, so O&O tells me which file it belongs, then delete with “unlocker”, restoring from recycler, and “few”, one problem is solved ; reiterating does the remaining job!!! (of course, I try first with rebooting the PC to limit the number of chunks pending “locked”)!
    Some may say : “I got no application crashed into vista, it cannot come this way on my PC…”. Are you sure? there is an application always running under vista as well as xp sp1, sp2, sp3, it is “explorer”. This stuff always “crashses” when my CPU overheat, and then a file under selection by explorer.exe is locked ; my vista keeps two occurence of explorer.exe running together : to close one and switch very quickly on the other? Never mind, it leads to “locked” chuncks, that remain “locked”, specially if a patch is applied by windows update wich change digital finger-print of explore.exe : when restarting, explorer.exe cannot unlock the chunks, they belong to another application! (some worms try to imitate the name of a regular application, or infect it, so the “finger-print” is changed, and managements rights could block acces to the file ; good ideas often turn out into nightmare for users, in case of security!!!)

  • Vishal

    Great Software. So light yet so effective. One suggestion though, I know teracopy adjusts buffersize automatically if destination size is a network drive. In such a case, by default it keeps 256KB as buffer size, I have seen that this slow down copy when compared with windows (inbuilt) copy (this is when you are copying to a machine connected to LAN). I had to manually increase the buffer to get a good speed of copy. Can this adjustment in buffer size be done automatically.

  • LeKing

    @Vishal
    Yes, parameter is in the ini file “Options.ini” : Network=256 (by default)

  • http://kenstuart.blogspot.com Ken

    Jeff – there is no documentation for the [Buffer] section in Options.ini, MilesAhead above recommends to add:

    [Buffer]
    Default=1024
    SameDrive=16384
    BetweenHDD=16384
    Network=131072

    Can you comment on whether this Options.ini section is actually supported and whether the above is advisable ?

    I see that the Favorite Target Folders is supposed to be implemented on February 12 for Pro, but I do not see any target folder change when I added the Pro License Key. (A clue about that might have been that I asked for Favorite Target Folders for Pro in every message I sent you over the past month !! Clearly, that indicated that I did not notice any change.

    jeff before u release ths iteracopy as a full version please remove this annoying run as admin everytime u start copying files to usb drive etc. everytime it ask for uac prompt even when i send simple avi or doc files like that. make it use uac only when it is really needed, copying files to program files, windows. well drive c: stuff, the rest no need of this .please also i got error when i try to copy files at times, get error that it can’t read the file etc and the copying freezes. have to cancel and start again. its annonying, but previous versions worked fine.

    I though Windows not allows writing to a root of usb drives. But they instead disabled autorun on removable drives (except optical) in Windows 7. Good idea, but it should be done seven years ago in XP SP1.

    My Teracopy app says PRO in the title bar, and this Favorites feature is still not enabled, so I think that you never actually enabled it. The new separate app says “Available in Tera Copy Pro” and does not do anything when you click in the left part of the app…

  • http://noweb fardeen

    hey jeff small bugs to be reported, the uac prompt is less annoying when copying files on usb drive etc so its nice, but i copied a zip file to the root of drive c: and then i drag and drop it on the desktop, i get error message 38 and 39 at times. then when i click on okay, the copying starts but the source is not deleted. my best bet is that in drive c root all operations should run as admin. this bug needs fixing. also a little bug i lauched a number of teracopy i can’t start copying or moving flies until i first pause the first operation, and then teracopy allows me to copy the files. also, when i try to move or copy files . i get a new teracopy copy window of the previous first problem and it says teracopy can’t find the file specified. everytime i try to copy something i get the same window. its annoying, i think its a bug. please fix it before the final release please

  • Silver

    Wow, the new version is definitely great! One thing I was wondering but do you ever thought about changing the type of algorithm Teracopy uses to check the files? Or perhaps you think CRC is fine for what it does?

    with unknown file material like downloaded web pages etc.

    All the other copying routines DOPUS, Teracopy, TurboNavigator permit pausing, continuation and skipping of faulty files. With large files like

    Video clips, backup files, etc. consideration for fragmentation may be important. To defragment a 26 GB file with only 2 or 3 fragments will still

    take more time than the actual copying itself. There the windows XP copying routine would be best.

    It the 2.0 Betas as well as the nightlies, TeraCopy would copy and/or move files at around 90MB/sec, however with 2.01 Final, TeraCopy is only copying and or moving files at between 35MB/sec – just over 50MB/sec. What is going on, and why the big change in speed?

    Maybe because with high speed, it causes unexpected crashes. Like I encounter before with the 2.0 Beta. I transferred Gig of files then it crash. With 2.01 Final, it work just fine. I am not sure it that is the reason, its just my own speculation.

    To be consistent with other options, “NoClose” should also be an .ini file option as well.
