please improve “lost connection” so teracopy will just pause when it loses the path, and begin again when it detects it comes back, i realy miss this option i used another program that did this, but that program wont work in vista/7
merry christmas and a happy new year 🙂
this will REALY be useful for wireless networks that disconnect/reconnect more often than wired!
hope an simplified chinese version.

What are the licensing terms for this application? Do I need one copy per machine?
The link on CS website still directs to the version 2.01 – it’d be good to change it as not every user reads the blog.
Thanks for the new version!
I still have a problem I only discoevered this morning on 2.01: if I try to copy a file to Windows\system32, TC copies it to Windows\SYSWOW64 … I thought 64-bit apps weren’t supposed to do that? 🙂
In the main site, the link for Europe is ver. 2.01, while the link for USA is ver. 2.1 and the version still says 2.01.
Please add the feature to resume on system crash or reboot so that errors while copying are reduced
After having gone back two or three times to 2.0B4, I am trying out 2.1 now.
JEFF – Please please turn off the “Flashing” on the Task Bar when there is insufficient disk space. It is the most annoying Windows thing since the animated paper clip. As a paid Pro user, this is a must – at the minimum, allow it to be optionally turned off in options (if you feel that some people want it). Thanks !
The bug on x64 systems (reported by Taverner) regarding copying on SYSWOW64 folder instead of system32 folder, is present in v2.1 also.
Please correct it.
Hope an polish version, i can help in translation, just contact: email@example.com.
buggy yet .
there are another free file copiers all of them are reliable, such as FastCopy,ExtremeCopy,CopyHandler…
None of those have TEST.
(CopyHandler has same problem as TeraCopy – ie one developer with no time)
What installation slash commands are available for the install? Tried /silent and had some success, however am looking for a completely silent, no reboot option. Any suggestions?
bluetrevia, there’s “/VERYSILENT /NORESTART”
I feel the same as #10 (and I am also a paid user), I used tweak ui to disable the flashing.
I would like to help translate/maintain TeraCopy to Chinese Simplified, please do contact me.
I just tried the new 2.1 version, but a bug still exists where moving files to a network share can result in the files seemingly disappearing from both computers. I suspect this bug may have affected other users, and fortunately I figured out eventually what is really going on.
The bug is caused if you have a desktop shortcut to the network share. Without this, the Teramove to a network share works fine.
Here is how to reproduce this bug:
– Create a desktop shortcut to a network share like \\OTHERPC\Videos
– Teramove (using right-clik and select “Teramove here”) some files to this \\OTHERPC\Videos network folder. (It doesn’t matter if you open it via the shortcut or Network Places, only that the shortcut is on the desktop).
– The files instantly disappear from the source location on your original PC, and are not copied/moved to the network folder.
– The files are now actually located in a directory on your original PC “C:\Documents and Settings\username\Desktop\Videos on OtherPC (OtherPC)”. You will not be able to see this via the Windows Explorer but a DOS CMD prompt can CD to these directories from the Desktop directory and find the missing files.
– Note that regular Windows move does not have this bug even if such a desktop shortcut exists.
Suggestions for the next version of TeraCopy :
1. Option to use the old 1.xx progress bar
2. Option to change the font attributes in the progress bar ( MB’s copied, percentage, files remaining ).
3. Please add the ability of copy lists. I think it would be very useful in the middle of a copy or a move operation – if you have something to do away from your PC for some hours or a day – to be able to pause and continue.
Longtime user and fan of TeraCopy. Started having problems when I upgraded to 2.1. Now, every time I ‘copy to’ large files, TeraCopy waits for me to hit Start Now in the pop-up window before initiating the transfer. If I somehow fail to notice it, it will minimize in ‘move waiting’ state. Is there some way to address this issue and just have it start automatically? It never used to happen and it’s driving me crazy.
The good news is that TeraCopy friendly integrates with Total Commander. But the bad news is that when you copy or move files via TeraCopy, every files/folder comments will be lost 🙁 , because TeraCopy does not handle descript.ion comments format (nor alternative files.bbs format). Is there any trick to prevent losing od all comments?
Been using TC for a while now, without any problems, but version 2.1 added that annoying “start now” feature. What’s up with that? Copying used to start immediately in previous versions, no need for the “start now” button. It is VERY annoying.
Any way to disable it?
What happened to the “Buffer Size” slider??? This was massively beneficial to our workflow. When copying very large files from our fiber connected storage we would get slow (40MB/sec) transfer speeds until we cranked the slider to 20…then the transfer speed would jump up to well over 110MB/sec…this one of the primary reasons we use Teracopy (the other being the test, of course). Now the slider is gone, and we can’t get speeds over 40…what gives??? Is this only available in the “Pro” version?
Also have that “Start now” problem.
Tried to move several files/folders but the single TC processes all remain “Move waiting…” and none of them starts to move the files on it’s own. So I need to sit there and click “Start now” every now and then, when another TC process finished. Please fix it.
Also I’d like to have the option to disable this auto-minimizing. I want to see what’s going on with my copy/move processes.
And please fix the “Second LCD on the left side from the primary LCD” problem. Every new TeraCopy windows still opens on the primary LCD! Can anyone confirm this problem? (Win7 x64)
What about the “Use system write cache” feature in the option section of TeraCopy 2.1? Is is “better” to use THIS cache while copying or moving, or should it be disabled to increase performance? And if it’s disabled, does TeraCopy use an internal cache?
If you are interested in the answer, you will need to search the other comment threads, because it was answered about six months ago.
Just checked the copy-speed by transfering a 700 MB AVI file to a 16 MB USB-stick. Actually there is no difference in speed compared to Windows Explorer on Vista x64. So where is the advance of this tool, except the “pause”-funktion.
Another user chiming in to say I am absolutely baffled at the “Start Now” dialog. It’s like it constantly thinks there’s another instance of TeraCopy open and so I’m always stuck with this ridiculous “Move waiting…” or “Copy waiting…” dialog. help!
I have order Teracopy Pro over Plimus on December 28th and i did not receive a license key today.
I am not sure about other users, but the instances of teracopy that show “move waiting” resume on their own once the current instance has finish copying/moving. I can use the “start now” to force that particular instance to start moving/copying immediately.
How does it perform on your side?
BUG DISCOVERED Teracopy 2.1
words with spaces with nothing gives error sizes mismatch CRC check
file copied correctly but (seems to give erros in program)
The Invention of Lying 2009 MERRY XMAS 720p BluRay x264-METiS
same file copied correctly and without any kind of errors
cheers and continue the good work team
I too can confirm that after using TeraCopy 2.1 for a while it now THINKS there’s another instance already working so that you have to click on “start now”.
This happens even after reboot. Files are not “queued” anymore and just sits there and you have to click on Start Now to start the copy/move when there’s NO other instance of TeraCopy running.
I managed to solve the “start now” problem.
1) Go to %appdata%/teracopy folder
2) Delete the file called processes
That should solve the problem. Apparently Teracopy stores the halfdone copies there, but for some reason did not clear it off once finished, hence the odd behaviour. Test and let me know how it goes.
I have this problem, but in the folder i don’t have the file “processes” and anyone like that. What else Can I do? (sorry for my english, I speak spanish 🙂 )
hope an simplified chinese version
Thank you very much! It works now.
Agreed – the fix works.
However, I am expecting the error to occur again, since it has hit many of us – must be a bug in there somewhere.
Thanks for the tip Anon.
I would LOVE the Test after move option on top of the Test after copy one. IE check the CRC before deleting, as its the only really critical time to need it.
Major bug, IMHO, I set TeraCopy 2.1 to copy — not move — stuff from my HDD to a USB device, and it’s not copying them, it’s moving them and deleting the files from my HDD; not f***ing impressed!
I’ve had the left over “processes” file occur once.
More of a problem for me is that this version has 2 random bugs. They all seem to be on move operations
1. Small files being skipped, when trying to move a whole folder. Left behind in the source folder and not found in the destination.
2. Same as above, except the files are copied, but left behind in the source.
Unfortunately seems quite random.
The bottleneck is the slow writing speed of the USB stick.
I’ve just found this out and it seems ok. When I do copy something it isn’t immediate, rather it waits for me to click the start button. For this reason alone, windows copy is much better. At least it actually copies files rather than queues it up.
Use the above to fix the “Start Now” problem.
How about 100% license discounts while the several fatal move/copy errors are fixed……..
Start Now fix doesn’t work for me. I kind of preferred the old behavior where the 2nd instance would start working when the first is done. Only thing is it should avoid covering the window with the copy going on. Maybe have a preference to be beside it or under it or something.
Having to click the button before the minimize timer runs out is too distracting. I’m trying to use TeraCopy to do the copying with single threaded file managers to offload the task. If I have to keep monitoring the copy operation I can’t queue up other tasks with the file manager. Most 64 bit file managers that are free aren’t multi-threaded. Looks like I may have to try KillCopy for this solution.
Apologies to the author. I didn’t try TeraCopy free version enough to get the rationale. I see now that the AutoMinimized instances still complete the copy without intervention in sequence. And on Windows Seven I get the taskbar progressbar. Very nice. I’ve used TeraCopy for quite awhile on and off over the years. Sorry I missed out on the 50% discount. It was gone by the time I saw it. 🙂
Thank you anon. works.

fix for teracopy 2.1 2.0 1.22 “start now” wait for transfer copy move press push broken can’t work doesn’t drag drop windows xp seven vista
sometimes when i cut and paste with Teracopy2.12 the whole files are copied to the destination folder but still some files are left back as if they are not transferred.When copying smal amount of files this may not be such a big issue,but when transferring large amount of files[that too sensitive]and seeing that files are left ut is very disturbing as well as time consuming bcoz people will try to cut and paste it again becoz they are not sure…
Hoping that teracopy will Progrss… Rawas Mohammed
also Please add the tool for checking if there are any updates available in teracopy..It would be very very useful and time saving 😀
I agree with #50, I have the same problem!
It works. The ‘Copy Waiting’ problem has been solved mentioned above. I’m happy for the blog.
yes, need this feature too
“START NOW” Issue.
When you start a copy the system Stays in “Start Now” and counting down to minimize, if you miss the counting the Teracopy window will minimize without doing anything.
Sometimes if any Transfer is interrupted Processes will not purge the queue and it will react like other instance of the program or other transfer is already running starting the countdown for user to accept another simultaneous instance of the program.
Delete Processes File (No Extension)
Stop All Teracopy.
Open Windows Explorer ->
In the address bar type “%appdata%/teracopy” (without quotes) and hit Enter.
Delete Processes File
Start any copy task for Teracopy.
It should work fine now.
