File system cache overhead.

I have used Teracopy through XP, Vista and no Windows 7 and never had a problem with it. I've copied files in the region of 10 gb and never managed to get it to hang or stutter. On the other hand I've read many forum posts where people are having these kind of problems, strange indeed. Granted, I have now moved to Richcopy when moving really large files, it's faster.

I read an article by Larry Osterman where the sound subsystem and network subsystem affected each other in a very cruel and unusual way.

For all anyone knows, people having troubles with TeraCopy may in fact have driver issues with TC, or internal driver issues that are not readily evident.

All I know is that if the same thing happens with RichCopy, you'd better start digging deep into your OS.

Hi all

unless I've misunderstood something why not use something like Acronis True Image to move/ copy files -- it operates in "File Mode" as well as "Disk Partition Image mode" and has no probs in moving HUGE files either.

Whilst True Image is actaully a backup / restore program it can be used very successfully for these type of operations (plus you have a decent tool for backing up your system(s) as well.

Cheers

That's actually a great idea. Why on earth haven't I thought of that myself.

That's what I was going to suggest. I copied a Windows.old folder over my network to a USB drive in case I wanted anything from it, then deleted from my HD. Around 206,000 files folders and links in that Windows.old. It would have been just about impossible(or at least a major pita) without RichCopy.
