TeraCopy Filehippo is a free utility software designed and developed to copy/move files faster and more secure. One of the big complaints about the newer versions of Windows is the slow copying and transferring speed, especially when transferring lots of files over the network. If you want to speed up your copying or if you regularly transfer large amounts of data and have to stop the process to perform some other disk-intensive task, this program may be just what you need.
TeraCopy is designed to copy and move files at the maximum possible speed. It skips bad files during the copying process and then displays them at the end of the transfer so that you can see which ones need attention. TeraCopy can automatically check the copied files for errors by calculating their CRC checksum values. It also provides a lot more information about the files being copied than its Windows counterpart. The app integrates with Windows Explorer’s right-click menu and can be set as the default copy handler.
TeraCopy Filehippo Features
Fix Errors Easily
In case of a copy error TeraCopy will try to recover. If unable to recover in the worst-case scenario it will simply skip the problematic file, not terminating the entire transfer. It can also wait for network or device reconnection. Unnecessary files can be skipped to reduce the transfer time. During the process, TeraCopy shows detected errors and allows you to fix the problem by recopying only the problematic files.
The app can verify files after copy to ensure they are identical. This is done by comparing the hashes of source and target files. Supported algorithms: CRC32, MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, SHA-512, Panama, Tiger, RipeMD, Whirlpool, and xxHash.
Confirm drag ‘n’ drop
The tool can optionally show a confirmation dialog on every drag and drop operation. It can prevent you from moving folders accidentally from one location to another.
The software can keep the history of recently used directories, as well as show folders that are open in Explorer and other file managers.
The tool can completely replace the Explorer copy and move functions, enabling you to work with files as usual.
Export reports – (Pro)*
Save file lists with all related information as HTML and CSV files.
Edit file lists – (Pro)*
Unnecessary files and folders can be removed to reduce the transfer time.
Preserve date timestamps
The app keeps the original time and date of files when copying.
