Windows 7: Love affair with Teracopy coming to an end..

Love affair with Teracopy coming to an end..

I am in the process of re-organizing mad quantities of files, repartitioning drives, setting up all new backups, erasing dups etc..

Anywho... at the moment, I am getting horribly frustrated with Teracopy, with whom I have been having a brief but passionate love affair over the last few days.. Seems, when transferring large folders, Teracopy sometimes just stops.. and stops.. for long times.. and I am not yet clear if this is a windows thing, or a Teracopy thing.. In windows transfer, the same bogus crap seems to occur, but because of the vague progress bar, you never quite really no for sure.. With Teracopy, all the vagueness is gone, and you can see it silently choking on a single small file.. Oh the rub..

I just started a transfer 207gb in size. It is now stuck at 9.6%.. going to give it a few, and will post if it picks itself back up..

In the mean time, am open to suggestions..

I was wondering exactly how long the affair would last.

Don't use it. I once loved Tera.

I see.. so you are certain it is a Teracopy issue then. As stated, windows file transfer seems to engage in the same disgusting behavior, but it all gets glossed over, because of the vague transfer bar. I think they intentionally made it that way as a sort of tribute to politicians, to give the illusion of progress, even when there really is none happening, but because the little bar keeps flashing, and the file animation plays, you could swear it is really actually doing something..

If it is a TC issue, then yeah.. I guess it will have to go. If however it is a windows thing, that TC is just nakedly exposing, then I guess I see myself as one who would rather know, than live in blissful ignorance.

So.. I guess they should have called it mega copy rather than Teracopy to denote that it is only useful for smaller files..

I find one version of TeraCopy will fly along at almost 70mbs and the next version update will drop to 36mbs. Others have found this also. I notice the type of file and copying/moving files to same drive or a different drive makes a difference in speed.

Antman, do you have experience with similar programs? Moving smaller chunks seems counter-intuitive when moving large files, perhaps you would illuminate on the process.

One feature of TeraCopy I like is the testing of files for a crc match. At least it reports success or error.
