Windows 7: After updating Teracopy from 2.3 to 3.0 I see strange(?) behaviour

I've been away and offline for a week. What was the file size for your copied file?

Your file cache is 10 times the size of mine but I'm not sure why that is.

There were no issues with Teracopy 3 on my machine and no freezes or delays.

I've gone back to Teracopy 2.3 as it doesn't install a service which runs in the background.

Maybe check your pagefile size.

I suppose I should point out that on my machine there is a RAMdisk and the pagefile for Windows Partition
has been swapped to another partition so it's not the same setup as yours.

Hi man.
Sorry for the late reply, I meant to reply sooner but I was just too busy.

You can see the size of copied files in attached screenshots.

Try copying 5-6 small files (200-300 MB) from your internal HDD to your external HDD and expand the window so you can see the log of the files that are being copied and look at it while it's copying them.

Yeah I don't really like TC 3 installing an unnecessary service on my machine.

My pagefile size is managed automatically so it's the same size as my RAM which is 4 GB.

My pagefile is on the system partition.

I'm gonna stick to TC 2.3 for now and try to tolerate its bugs.

Actually I had reason last week to copy all important files to seagate backup external HD as I had a non booting machine after this months windows updates. Having initially been unable to restore Macruim Reflect backup, once I got the machine working I used Teracopy 2.3 to copy all of the files to the 1TB external HD and it went okay with no freezes. I'm starting to wonder if you have got a buggy shell extension that might make Teracopy struggle with certain files. I've seen such a shell extension cause delayed copy/ move/ delete operations on my own machine before. The problem is it that it's not easy to diagnose.
