Windows 7: Problem in Managing the Default Copy Handler!

Problem in Managing the Default Copy Handler!

I am used to Copy Handlers other than the Windows Copy Handler,
specially TeraCopy. After i have finished gathering up all my customised
pc parts and starting it up.
I have installed TeraCopy and set it to be my Default Copy Handler,
but it's just won't be! I decided to use anther programs, i have used
two so far, in both of them even when they are set to be the Default
Copy Handler; Windows always use it's Copy Handler.
So i have figured out the problem here isn't in the programs it's in the Windows it self?
And because my line of work i move & copy a lot of files daily ( 5~20 GB a day )
Please Help!

In Teracopy, if you are using drag and drop for copy and paste, try right clicking on the selected files/folders for holding them together and drop on the target folder and select TeraCopy here / TeraMove here context menu.

I was using Teracopy since my XP days but in Windows 7, sometimes the default copy handler works equally well or better than Teracopy. I noticed Teracopy pauses in between while copying large quantities of files (especially when copying from CDs and DVDs). I tried the Use System write Cache feature on/off to no effect.

That is the thing, when i used TeraCopy on my Toshiba Laptop with Windows 7,
i didn't have any problem at all, from the get go to the last day, but it never
worked on my customised PC!
Even if the Windows Copy Handler work better than TeraCopy,
But TeraCopy give me a lot of necessary features to my Work, Thats WHY!

Change to default 'copy in same directory' behavior
Aloha, I'm in the habit of making a backup of files before changing them. To keep track of each version of a file, I make a copy and then rename it to include the last modified date. For example, if I'm going to edit bozo.html, I'll make a copy of the file (in the same directory) and rename it...
