    Is there any advantage or disadvantage to “use system write cache” IF one does not otherwise need it for compatibility with anti-virus and ftp ?

  • You may experience a small change in copy speed.. It was in WinXP days, perhaps under Windows 7 there will be no difference. If anyone will do some tests, please post results here.

  • Logan

    When will there be a new portable version released?

    Which would be slightly slower, using the system write cache or not using it ?

  • BrainDedd

    NOD32 is currently picking up this installer as a variant of Win32/Statik. False positive on their side I’m sure.

  • Richard

    Are the 64-bit editions packaged in the same install file now? I’m still using a 2.00 beta because it’s the only one that was marked for 64-bit.

  • Anon

    From some testing from a portable hdd shifting 24 files totaling about 5gb+, on a vista 32bit, using the system write cache is slower.

    Anyone else done any test?

  • Anon

    With system write cache on, it is about 23-27mb/s, with it off, it is about 27-33mb/s.

  • yeah any advantage of using system cache apart antivirus etc
    i don’t have any problem right noow so should i enable this?

  • i tested and i saw it very slower when i turned system cahe on on windows 7, it reduced my copy speed from, 49 to 33kb/s

  • Olaf

    Really not a big difference here with Win 7 x64. I did some sets of tests, it’s about 47 MB/s with cache on, and 45.5 MB/s with cache off for big files, and 9.5 MB/s with cache on and 9.3 MB/s with cache off for lots of small files.

  • Sanford Bloch

    guess I’ll leave the cache off:

    copy 1.26 GB – cache on 34MB/s…..cache off 65MB/s

  • MikeC

    My AVG Antivirus (fully updated with latest definition) is picking this beta up as a virus (file downloaded using link above). It identifies it as Win32/Heur.
    It is the teracopy.exe & enterkey.exe that it is complaining about.
    I have downgraded to 2.01 until I get confirmation all is OK.

  • MikeD

    Perhaps the solution is to avoid the executable’s compression…

  • FredB

    Downloaded this beta version after having used 2.01 for the last month & liking it. Would have liked to try this beta BUT the “install” neglected to include a file called “teracopy.exe” which I’m sure must be somewhat important. Please help.

  • Claw

    Okay im from Germany so sorry about my english ;)

    Well just want to tell you, that i realy love Terracopy :). It makes live easier. Sometimes Im truely moving terabytes of data from one HDD to another and i would been freakin out if windows explorer would resolved the transfer one more time :D.
    But one thing i have to say: Just keep it free and open. 15$ for a pro version is too much for me. But Im a guy who is not to costive(?) to donate a good work. But wheres the Paypal button ?
    Awnser me i want to send you some euros :).

    I was doing moves with 2.05b under Vista 32-bit and consistently have problems where not all files are moved, and TeraCopy is confused about which file it is moving or testing. I have reverted again to 2.0b4 which works fine.

  • Stanner

    Hello!
    Are you planned add multilanguage support in TeraCopy? I wished to make Russian localisation, but all dialogues are compressed or ciphered.

  • hey tommy – whats your user name at TPU?

    anyway, the file is safe. kaspersky 2010 (which is far superior to nod32 in detection of false positives) sees nothing.

  • Simone

    Avira Antivir warned me about ‘C:\Program Files\TeraCopy\is-Q3QVJ.tmp’ and for ‘C:\Program Files\TeraCopy\EnterKey.exe’ (I believe that .tmp file then become the .exe file, they are the same file). It said that the file was packed with in strange way and alert about ‘PCK/Obsidium’ [packer].

    I’ve tried with virustotal.com and the report is:

    AntiVir 7.9.0.215 – PCK/Obsidium
    Authentium – W32/Heuristic-210!Eldorado
    AVG – Win32/Heur
    CAT-QuickHeal – (Suspicious) – DNAScan
    eSafe 7.0.17.0 – Suspicious File
    F-Prot 4.4.4.56 – W32/Heuristic-210!Eldorado
    Fortinet – PossibleThreat
    McAfee-GW-Edition – Heuristic.LooksLike.Win32.Suspicious.C!94
    Sophos – Sus/ComPack-C

  • ArQangel

    Have had some fun when using Teracopy to create multiple new directories (I know this is a bizarre way to do things)

    If you select two directories and then hold down to copy them it creates the new directories in one of the previous ones.

    Must admit I haven’t tried this with 2.05 yet as I’m also getting a positive on the virus scanner because of the packed .exe file.

    In the 2.* Betas as well as the nightlies, TeraCopy would copy and/or move files at around 90MB/sec, however with 2.01 Final — and 2.05 Beta — 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?

  • Tommy

    what about using inno setup?

  • Is it compatible with Windows 7 ?

    TeraCopy is completely safe. Since new versions are being released WITHOUT them being analysed by virus scanner companies first, the virus scanners are unaware of what the program is, and thus flag it as “suspicious” or give it a generic virus category (eg. AVG – Win32/Heur).

    Just add the files to your AV’s exception list until ESET mark it as a false positive. Follow the process on http://kb.eset.com/esetkb/index?page=content&id=SOLN141 to speed that up.

  • toh

    I would like to make a request.
    There is feature – rename/rename all for the files with the similar filename.

    It would be useful to have also: backup/backup all, so that the original files will be renamed to something like “filename.exe.bak” (or moved to the folder “backup”, created in the same directory)

    Thanks, I’m already using InnoSetup and NSI (for portable version). So you can use these parameters when installing: http://help.codesector.com/InnoSetup

    Anyone else having problems with 2.05 on Win 7 RC x64? It installed fine for me but its not showing up as the default copy handler and missing the context menu as well. 2.01 did not have this issue though it had its own share of bugs.

    Note I uninstalled 2.01 and then did a clean reinstall of 2.05 ..

  • Ashok Raut

    Please provide beta version in ZIP format

  • Mike Green

    Just a suggestion but what about a skip identical option.

  • don Sussman

    The download of the beta version has a virus

  • Does Teracopy support server OSes (e.g. Windows 2003 and 2008)? Thanks.

  • @Ben
    Yeah, I’m using it this very moment to move some files around on Server 2008 R2 (64-bit only). Works fine except it seems to butt heads with Symantec Corporate…

  • daster

    If i enable the new system write cache on windows7 x64, with avira antivirus, the copy speed doubles from 22mb/s to 50mb/s
