ExtremeCopy: Probably The Fastest File/Folder Move & Copy Utility

When backing up data or transferring gigabytes of useful information, we often find ourselves waiting impatiently for task completion notification. Copying files and folders from multiple sources to various destinations in an organized batch operation is also a challenge for users. ExtremeCopy addresses all these issues and provides features like verification and enhanced file copy speed. It has been observed to outclass the Windows 7 explorer copy speeds by 20% ~ 120%, depending on the amount of data handled. Furthermore, it has also been seen to perform faster in comparison with previously reviewed utilities like SuperCopier and fairly popular TeraCopy.

This freeware is a simple yet powerful utility that welcomes you with an interface partitioned for source and destination file/folder information. To add a file or folder, click Source File/Folder button and select the required option. You can add multiple files and folders that fill the source layout area in a listed form for better visualization.

ExtremeCopy basic interface

You can check the verification feature at the bottom left corner of the window or click More for brief options. ExtremeCopy lets you copy or move data from a source to destination folder. Any wrong entry can easily be removed or filtered through the buttons on the top right corner. If at any point, the source or destination space becomes cluttered, the Clear button instantly cleans up the mess.

Download ExtremeCopy


  1. ..I have been testing extremeCopy since from previous 3 versions and now in Beta 3 for some time now. Have installed it on hundreds of systems, Win7 Pro, Win8.1 Pro and now Win10, all x64 and appreciate the simple elegance of this copy routine, especially it’s ability to get past error that normally would STOP a large file concentration with the standard Win Copy… Having said this, I also get an awful lot of errors and recently I’ve begun getting “trial period has ended” or words to that effect on many systems… I have to say that this is the first time I’ve seen this kind of thing on a buggy Beta software and now I am forced to uninstall ExtremeCopy on every system that has begun having issues, going back to using GS Richcopy 360 enterprise … ExtremeCopy is the right solution for Windows but is also still in terrible need of stabilizing, speeding up and debugging… I would NOT recommend the purchase of this until it is MUCH farther along in development…

  2. I know this thread is very old, but I was looking for
    something to move ton o files ( 7-9TB) from fast HDD WD 6TB Black to another 6TB Black HDD on my workstation and
    I have tried various tools including TeraCopy, Ultracopier, Fastcopy, ExtreemeCopy 2.3.4 and windows
    native handler and I have to say windows copier its #2 at moving files, it got up to 160mb/s that’s really good,
    TeraCopy its just crippled, barely moves the files at 35-40mb/s, TC was OK on
    XP but when comes to Win 7 its just horrible.

    The winner by big margin is ExtremCopy, it moved my files at whooping speed of almost 200mb/s, that is fast.

    Its so sad that the developer have stopped the development of this handy tool, it’s
    so sad I would gladly pay him another fee or even donate so he could
    continue on.

  3. For some TeraCopy is the best. I have also tried using it but I had to move on to other softwares since I’ve had troubles using TeraCopy. It would crash in the middle of a long file transfer and I hate doing double work. Good thing I found GS RichCopy 360. It works better than TeraCopy and is very fast.
