Windows provides a faster and more seamless copy operation but Microsoft does not give end-users control over this speed. All versions of Windows will transfer data at the speed they find to be plausible, in most cases the speed is the highest, thus, resulting in the freeze of lower-end PCs.
UltraCopier is a file move/copy enhancement tool that brings advance options and features and offers a wide range of copy,move and data transfer operation specific customizations. It includes user-defined speed enhancement options, copy/move controllers, speed limitations, copy list searching, and most importantly pause/resume capability.
There are many usage scenarios for this application. Let’s say you want to video chat or play a game while copying a large amount of data in the background, it will make more sense to limit the copy speed to a certain KB/s, so that CPU load can be distributed among multiple tasks. Once you’ve turned it on, the system tray icon will brighten-up, indicating that it has now replaced the Windows default copy/move feature. It is further possible to revert back to the Windows default copy/move functionality (with default dialog box enabled).
When the files are being copied/movied, you will see the application’s main interface with options listed under each tab. It offers detailed debug logging, so that you can easily identify what went wrong in case of any copy/move operation failures. As stated earlier, you can apply speed limitations, specify actions in case of copy errors and for file collisions. It is also possible to specify post-copy actions. All these options and functionalities can be accessed by clicking the More button.
In the main dialog box, you can pause/resume the operation, skip it, and view detailed information about the data being copied/moved.
The copy list shows all the data/files which have been copied and are being copied.
The Copy Management tab includes advance copy/move operation settings. You can enable options to auto start copy, copy the rights of files, and write with thread. Moreover. you can also specify the choice for maximum speed.
It works on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. Versions for Linux and Mac are also available. Testing was carried out on Windows 7 x86 system, and it worked flawlessly.
Extra Note: If you are looking to speed up the copying process and do not bother about the fancy features, then check out Talent Copy V. It is, according to some users, faster than Teracopy.
