Windows 7: Do you believe in/trust software that speeds up copying/moving files?

Do you believe in/trust software that speeds up copying/moving files?

I just found this webpage containing "tool" that claim to speed up file transfere:

15 Free File Copy Tools Tested for the Fastest Transfer Speeds



Are there any side effects or consequences to speeding up file transfere?

To me it looks a bit fishy that Microsoft did not 'discover' this speedup technique and incorportate it into Windows

Of all the copy tools listed, the only one I have personally used is TeraCopy. It worked flawlessly with no issues. It's also listed in the Forum's "Free Great Programs" section. (Since everything is listed alphabetically you'll have to scroll through several pages of programs. Or, click Ctrl+F to open a "find" window and type in TeraCopy to go right to it.)

As to why Microsoft doesn't incorporate these things into their OS, I have no clue.

Because every time they do, they get slapped with an antitrust lawsuit from a software publisher.
