    Hi,

    Great release! well done.
    However, my NOD32 sees it as a virus and blocked me downloading it.

    Thanks

    This guy tested TeraCopy against Vista’s native explorer and says TeraCopy is no longer relevant. Any comments on this article before I buy the product?

  • nottrue

    imho that’s a pretty bad example.

    probably a non-fragmentent file being copied to a non-fragmented location. Being a single file the difference would be smaller.

    As soon as you work with more than 1 file, or fragmentation the difference becomes very obvious

  • nottrue

    oh and i forgot to mention, he tested “same drive mode”, it’s different drive mode that really shines for me

    TeraCopy Pro v2 Final, Favourite Folders do not work under Vista x64 using xplorer pro x64 or Windows Explorer. After checking the timestamps of DLL’s, most were 22-06-2009 but TeraCopyExt64.dll’s was 21-06-2009!

    Favorite folders displayed in tclinks.exe and currently managed in TeraCopy itself (click on target folder name).

    TeraCopy is not only about the speed. You can test free version to see it yourself. Let me quote one comment on LifeHacker:

    Let’s say you’re copying your entire MP3 collection to an external drive for safe keeping. You start the copy, watch the little pages fly between the two folders and marvel at how Windows insists it will take some absurd amount of time like 88 days to copy your data.

    You come back 3 hours later and it’s frozen and you have no idea which files have been copied. You can attempt to compare the files on the external disk to the files on your computer and carefully select only the ones that didn’t copy properly, but that’s a huge pain in the ass and if you’re not careful you might miss an important file.

    Using one of the above copiers ensures, at minimum, that when transferring lots of files you don’t end up tearing your hair out.

    The increased transfer speed thanks to more efficient and copy handling is just a big bonus on top of that ;-)

    Ken :
    Can you explain how Favorite Target Folders work ? Note that I only start Teracopy Pro from the Explorer Context Menu.

    Added separate app for this, hope it’s better than sub-menus. Favorite folders can be added by clicking on target folder name in TC and selecting “Add …”.

    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.
    PS I posted this is the Nightly Builds Blog 24 hours ago, you should check blogs, etc. before posting a new version.

  • Prasad Upasani

    What is the tclinks.exe used for? I see references to “links helper”, but when I double-click on it, nothing happens. Running Windows XP SP3 32-bit.

  • mike

    hi .. just started using teracopy 1 a few weeks ago and i love it! .. so today i see 2 is out , weeee! .. thank you to all devs :] ..

    i like 2.0 but i don’t like the new queue behaviour , it opens new teracopy windows that say ‘move waiting’ .. thing is i copy / cut tons of files around all over the place and it sucks having 5 or 6 windows open. version 1 would just add the new moves to the queue in one window , any way to make 2 do that ?

    thanx again , great software!

  • http://www.sokoolz.com sKz

    Just bought it this morning, however the transaction sill on verifying. why does it takes so long T_T.
    I do really want my key now.

  • mikeg

    Just tried to get the deal, but I missed it. It’s still the 23rd where I’m at… :(

  • Darcy

    Me too, it’s 9:36PM PST. I just spotted the new release on MajorGeeks, came here find/read recent changes, saw the note about 50% off, figure maybe it’s worth buying for $10 to pickup the extra features since I do like to use it once in a while. Oh well, guess I will continue using the free version as it does the job.

    @mikeg

  • http://www.codesector.com Jeff

    Try tcsale coupon, it should be still valid.

  • mikeg

    I decided to purchase two copies and received an even better deal. Excellent!

  • http://www.sokoolz.com sKz

    okie got the confirmation call and got the code now.

    Thank you

  • Sébastien

    I use TaraCopy for a while and decided to support it !
    One important feature (for me) doesn’t work as it would, each time you add a file to the queue it opens a new TeraCopy Window… :(

    Thank you

  • ktxgio

    i try the new teracopy 2.0 and it work ok but… is possible to have the old explorer shell integration like in 2.0 beta 4a? for me is beter and quickly than the new windows that appear

  • ktxgio

    in version 2.0 beta 4a you can select directly what operations to do with file or files selected, in this new version no

  • Willy

    I started to use teracopy 2.0 but I have a problem: if I try to move files to a folder’s link I lose these files! There is nothing in the destination folder and in the origin folder! Why?

  • deal breaker

    ya that whole “move waiting” window is a deal breaker for me , back to 1.22 if i can find a copy .. i don’t understand the new window deal , it has all new stats for the number of files and time etc etc , how is that useful ??? ..

    PS.. please fix the download on your download section for version 1.22 .. it downloads 2.0 instead when clicked..

  • Jota.Ce

    TeraCopy needs one feature:

    Option button to set if you want to use TeraCopy instead of native Copy-Paste for all files OR only for big files.

    When substituting native C-P procedure with TeraCopy, i don’t find useful if files are small.

    The gain with big files is clear, but not with small files, since with native C-P, Windows Explorer refresh itself and files appear instantly, but with TeraCopy, there’s a gap of 1-2 seconds that i don’t want to wait.

  • Joan

    Do you plan to translate TeraCopy to another languages? I can translate it to Spanish and Catalan.

    Thanks!

  • sparky

    I am completely unable to get tc working on vista home premium. works fine on win7/7229 and xp pro sp3. Any troubleshooting hints (files, reg entries, etc) that you can point me to I’d be grateful.

    thanks

  • kot7k

    I also have problems moving files with free version. I cut some files and paste them over another ones and click on the button “all” of overwrite seccition, but then the folder i cut still has some files in that havent been copied, i guess that files are the ones that didnt need to overwrite others (cause they werent in the destination folder). Please fix that i would prefer to have the lastest nightly back instead but i cant find the link now.
    Greetings.

  • http://mai9.net mai9

    hola Joan, I am also catalan :)

    anyway, I have the same problem as ken #14

  • Prasad

    re: 2.01

    What star are you talking about? And again, could you please explain what tclinks.exe is and how it works? If I double-click on it – nothing comes up.

  • http://www.codesector.com Jeff

    It’s launched when you right click on a file/folder and select “TeraCopy…”. See updated screenshot on top of the page.

  • Olaf

    Thanks for the new version. A little problem, though, Teracopy entry stays in the explorer context menu even when “Add to explorer context menu” option is unticked. Using Win7 RC1 x64.

  • nectar

    I am a newbie to Truecopy – what a great product, thank you. I am curently trying out the latest beta version on a Vista machine, my only suggestion is that the main application window utilises the full screen of the users monitor, currently the application window cannot be maximised. Thanks.

  • Gaden

    When will the next deal be? I am interested to buy.

  • ark

    I purchased a copy a long time ago, will this download function as update to my registered version?

  • Eric

    i heard some good things about teracopy so i grabbed it today to try. im using windows xp on all computers and i tried a network copy (100mbit) of a file. i watched the network speed in task manager and normal copying in explorer gives me 90% speed, teracopy barely hit 50%. why would it be slower than normal windows copying? by that much too? any ideas?

  • Marcel Garcia Gabriel

    @Ken

    I have the same problem with the pro, i use xp sp3, i hope they arrange it on the future.

    Alert:
    Use of recent versions of TeraCopy may cause your file(s) to be lost if the move does not go correctly.
    I moved a folder with TeraCopy 2.01. When the Move part finished and the Test part started, the original folder vanished immediately, so if the Test indicated not a match for a file, then that file would be lost entirely. I tried it again with another folder and same result.

    I have now reverted back to 2.0 BETA 4 from prior to the nightly builds, until this is fixed, since I cannot afford to lose files entirely.

  • Ken

    I have the same problem as others are reporting about moving files to another folder. Jeff, have you look into this issue yet?

    When are we going to get an updated portable version of 2.01?
    Latest portable is still 2.0 beta 3!

  • sparky

    Additionally, any opinions on my Vista problems or hints on how to troubleshoot?

  • Chance

    Argggg….. I always miss every sell on TeraCopy. I have been waiting to purchase it when there is a sale and haven’t caught it yet! :) Oh well, maybe one day I will stumble upon it on the right day. I guess I will keep using the free version. Dang.

  • kraghavk

    Hi,

    I have been using TeraCopy on Vista for already more than a year now. It true that Vista SP1 onwards, the native copy program shipped with Vista has improved in terms of speed. But, as more than one commenters have pointed out, TeraCopy is more than handy if you are dealing with large file sets.

    I am currently using 2.0 beta 4 and for some reason I decided to upgrade to the stable v2.0.1. But the download links are not working. I tried using both Firefox and IE8 to download but can’t.

    IE stops for a while after downloading 99% and shows an error saying the connection with the server was reset.

    Firefox also downloads 99% and shows an error saying the source file cannot be read.

    As a last attempt, I tried using DownThemAll firefox extension. It reports an error saying that the file size in the HTTP header does not match with the size of the file downloaded.

    However, I tried renaming the partial download file to exe and executing it to no avail. The MSI installer says, files are corrupt.

    Please fix this ASAP.

    Thanks,
    kraghavk

  • Eliezer P

    @Jeff
    You should submit it to ESET. I in addition to sKz and kraghavk are all having problems with it being flagged as a virus by NOD32.

  • Eliezer P

    @kraghavk
    You might want to check if your antivirus program (probably NOD32) is having a false positive. This is usually how IE and Firefox act when a remote connection is terminated by an A/V prog.

  • http://mai9.net mai9

    I have to say that I don’t like this new window showed above (link). When it pops up I immediatelly press the second button “add files to teracopy” to show the normal window and choose there the path to copy/move to. Like other users I would prefer to get rid of it (sorry Jeff) to be more productive.

    The favorite folders could be shown in the menu that opens when clicking “copy to” or “move to”, next to the recent used. And those could be set on the preferences window. I see you can also add them when clicking on the path after copying. That was also a good move. This prove I really don’t need that extra window added recently.

  • sparky

    Well, I’ve had to banish TV from all of the machines I’m responsible for at home. Mystery deletions of original files before the copy is verified, failure to integrate properly on Vista Home Premium, inconsistant behavor under Win7, none of which I want to deal with.

  • VP

    I too – have been a fan of TC for a long time but yesterday’s complete and utter failure to “move” a large file set from one location to another was finally the last straw. I am using the very latest 2.01 build and about 10% into a 197GB transfer – TC just stopped on a particular file and it took me about 2 minutes of clicking Skip, Resume etc etc before the bloody program would snap of of whatever hissy fit it was having.

    It happened again about 10 minutes later and then again 15 minutes later. I checked and rechecked the files it was complaining about and found noting wrong. I uninstalled TC and when to the standard Vista Business move process which completed successfully with no issues in no time.

    This product had a bright future here and I recommended it to many of my collegues – now tho – especially with the “move” function completely broken (leaves the original files/folder where they are – even tho I am asking for a move)it has been banished.

    File move/copy in Vista SP2 is as fast or faster and does not make any mistakes.

    Continued success….

  • Prasad

    Have to agree: TC 2.01 is still buggy. Reproducible error: Start a copy of two large files (5GB +) from Windows 7 (64-bit) to NAS. Once that starts, start a second similar copy from another Windows 7 folder to a different folder on the same NAS. Now the second copy waits, and waits, and waits .. Long after the first copy is done, it keeps waiting.

    Have to say I prefer the old behaviour of everything in one TC window – can we bring that behaviour back as an option?

  • Jonathan

    I do not seem to have the nice GUI that is shown… I downloaded version 2.01 Where is the GUI that is pictured?

  • neil

    Same issue as VP above. TC 2.01 on XP stalled 12% of way through a 1TB (80,000 files) copy from external drive to external drive. Refused to copy 1 particular file and no amount of clicking would bypass it. File was not corrupt. Had to cancel the copy.

    I have been waiting to buy this program for a long time and will do so when the bugs become less serious.

  • merlin

    @Jonathan
    In an Explorer window, select the files you wish to copy. Then right-click the selection and click TeraCopy from the context menu. You should see the desired GUI.

  • Chris

    Hey, found a bug while I was copying ~800 pictures from hard drive to flash drive. It looked like it was caching the whole job (grey bar advancing much faster than the actual copying), and for most of the job, it showed 100% completion, while it was still copying over half of the pictures. Not a big deal–the files copied over great–but it couldn’t give me a time completion estimation.

  • Bill

    Quick question. I am copying 225,000 files or around 750gb of data to another Drobo.I am seeing something like “Total 374.05GB of Error” I can’t imagine this is a good thing, but I can’t find any reference for this. Is anyone familiar with this type of “Error”?

  • karthik

    teracopy takes about 8-10 seconds to open initially in both the portable and installed versions in windows xp… i have tried this out n found it opening slowly on all xp machines …i get irritated to the core wen i wanted to copy a few pictures from one folder to other..bcos it takes a lot of time to open..pls help

    Just wanted to say that this utility program has the performance characteristics of mainframe tools for the z/OS operating system on IBM System z such as FDR, DFSMSdss, FlashCopy, and PPRC. Phenomenal performance… If you are unfamiliar, you should look into REAL copy performance. Yes, the mainframe can copy THOUSANDS of storage volumes in their entirety in a matter of MINUTES (DS8000).

    I just tested version 2 of TeraCopy on Windows 2000 SP4. It performs beautifully on a Pentium III 500 using an ASUS P2B LS motherboard (circa 1999)using a 300 Gig SATA drive and 512megs of memory! Just copied a 120 gig WD hard drive with it… in about 2.5 hours.

    Is there an onboard feature to just create a one-for-on copy/backup image of a drive? That’s what I’m looking for.

    Keep up the fine work!
