Anyone that has been working on a Windows based system (Regardless of what version) groans everytime you have to copy or move many files from a drive to another…
I did however find this little gem that takes most of the pain out of it;
FastCopy is the Fastest Copy/Delete Software on Windows.
It supports UNICODE and over MAX_PATH 260 byte pathname files. It automatically selects different method according to whether Source and DestDir are in the same or different HDD.
- Diff HDD Reading and writing are processed respectively in parallel by another thread.
- Same HDD Reading are processed until the big buffer fills.
When the big buffer filled, writing are started and processed in bulk.Because Reading/Writing are processed with no OS cache at all, other applications aren’t easy to become heavy.
It can bring out Reading/Writing performance that is close to device limit.Include/Exclude Filter UNIX Wildcard style can be specified. It runs lightly, because MFC is not used. made by Win32 API and C Runtime only
You can modify this software, because all source codes have been opened to the public in the BSD license.
Editors note: And no it’s not an April Fools joke 🙂
Get it via FastCopy.
