TeraCopy Review


TeraCopy is a free software program that is used to replace the native copy function on Windows computers, offering advanced options such as error recovery, skipping files, verification and batch operations.

It is significantly faster than Explorer’s default copy and move functions, and can verify copied files by comparing their checksums; additionally, it avoids terminating transfer for bad files instead of terminating the process altogether.


If copying files and folders is an essential daily task for you, consider TeraCopy as it promises to outperform Windows’ built-in file transfer utility. It boasts many features which make copying faster and more reliable; plus it even checks to make sure that copied copies match their original counterparts! This free program even comes equipped with verification capability so you can ensure they’re identical after copying completes!

“Trophic’s most impressive attribute is unquestionably its speed.” In tests, this application proved capable of copying and moving large sets of files much more rapidly than Windows native capabilities while using less system resources. This speed is achieved using dynamically adjusted buffers and asynchronous copy. Furthermore, it can resume broken transfer sessions or skip bad files during copying processes if they occur.

An additional useful feature of FileGrabber is its ability to selectively copy file extensions and folders, saving time when performing actions on multiple files simultaneously. Furthermore, this tool can cap filenames at 255 characters while pausing ongoing transfers – providing a convenient way of freeing up system resources when necessary.

TeraCopy can also be used to generate and verify checksum files in all popular formats (Panama Tiger, Whirpool, RipeMD, SHA-1 and XXHash). It will compare hashes of source and target files to detect errors such as duplicated or corrupted data; then recopy those that differ, improving file transfer reliability while decreasing disk space consumption.

One of the key selling points of TeraCopy is its integration into Explorer shell, enabling users to run transfers directly from their primary window without requiring constant supervision or interrupting workflow with pop-up messages. Furthermore, TeraCopy features an impressive progress bar which shows detailed speed graphs and makes managing long copy tasks simpler and reducing overall transfer times easier than ever before.

Transfer speed

TeraCopy, a free utility available through Windows Explorer, can be much faster in copying large files across networked drives than Windows’ built-in copy utility. It comes equipped with many advanced features to quickly copy large files such as pausing and resuming transfers; saving resources that could otherwise be allocated elsewhere and speeding up transfers overall. In addition, errors will be detected so you can recover failed files more efficiently.

TeraCopy stands out by using asynchronous copying, which drastically speeds up file transfers. Furthermore, its verification feature checks files after being copied to ensure they match up exactly with their source files – saving time when comparing different versions or files stored at various locations.

TeraCopy makes copying files straightforward; it works as an extension of Windows Explorer, so all it takes to access it is right-clicking on any file or folder and selecting “TeraCopy” from its context menu. TeraCopy will replace Windows Explorer’s copy/move functions so you can work with files as usual.

TeraCopy can copy files and folders more quickly than Windows Explorer by decreasing seek times and dynamically adjusting buffers, making copying of files and directories even faster than usual. It does this by cutting seek times down while dynamically adapting buffer sizes – something not available with Explorer. This feature makes TeraCopy especially helpful when copying multiple large files at once or moving entire directories quickly and safely. Furthermore, TeraCopy allows copying or moving locked or in use files; something not offered with Explorer!

TeraCopy was able to copy 4.4GB of files at an average transfer speed that was nearly 31 MB/s faster than Windows, although transfer speeds varied throughout, sometimes falling below half of expected rates before gradually returning back up again.

Error recovery

Are you in search of a Windows program to rapidly copy files at high speeds? TeraCopy may be just what’s needed! This free tool speeds file transfers by dynamically and asynchronously adjusting buffers; error recovery features like pause/resume can speed things up as well, plus it comes equipped with file verification functionality; plus it can even replace Explorer copy/move functions, giving you full file management functionality as usual!

FastCopy provides another alternative to Windows file copying and moving tools with its faster transfer speeds, more stable platform, integrated shell feature, right-click access for files or folders or desktop shortcut. Its user interface should make FastCopy an accessible alternative even for newcomers.

TeraCopy stands out from other copying programs by being able to pause and resume file transfers, which is particularly useful when moving large files. Furthermore, it automatically retries failed or skipped files and can verify file integrity by checking hash values of original and copied files; additionally it supports 17 checksum algorithms including CRC32, MD5, SHA1, BLAKE3 xxHash3, etc.

TeraCopy can be run both as a portable application or installed to your system, with the latter option providing added benefit by integrating itself directly into Explorer shell so you can run transfers directly from context menu.

The program can be downloaded for both 32- and 64-bit Windows operating systems from its developer’s website, making it suitable for use when traveling. Furthermore, removable drives may be connected for running the software directly.

TeraCopy’s latest release offers support for converting RAR and 7z archives, along with an option to set it as Windows’ default copy handler. In addition, numerous performance and reliability enhancements have been implemented that will make copying files faster across local networks or the Internet easier than ever. Asynchronous copies support has also been introduced enabling users to skip unnecessary files in order to reduce transfer times further.


TeraCopy is an excellent tool for copying and moving files, being faster than Windows Explorer, offering paused and resume transfers and verification after completion. Furthermore, TeraCopy preserves original date/time stamps on copied files which is essential for forensic validity as well as providing additional features not found within Explorer such as recursion detection and an “skip all” mode for unattended copying.

This free program can quickly verify transferred data against its original source file and make sure it was successfully written to its destination drive. This feature is especially helpful when moving large files from one drive or unreliable media to another; and can even help recover erased or lost files due to malware attacks or accidental deletion. Verification takes place by comparing checksums of source and target files.

This program boasts several other useful features that make it a suitable solution for regular file transfers, including verifying file integrity, retry failed copies, pausing and resume transfers, setting up queues for multiple operations, encrypting passwords for secure connections, showing detected errors during transfer and more. Plus it integrates seamlessly into Windows Explorer shell with access from context menu.

TeraCopy maintains an audit trail for security purposes, which is stored on users’ systems. Unfortunately, however, this information can become volatile over time, potentially being erased if users open TeraCopy simply out of curiosity or to move files around with it. Therefore it’s wise to only use TeraCopy when necessary or register it as your default copy handler to reduce this risk.

This program is small and fast with an intuitive user interface. It supports various checksum algorithms and can quickly calculate them on-the-fly; in addition to this feature it compares original dates between source and destination files – perfect for people wanting to maintain records of digital content for legal or cultural archiving reasons, internet collapse preppers, internet collapse prepping or just being prepared in case disaster strikes!
