I did not try it but as I was looking for information, I saw https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RichCopy which states it is no longer developed

Richcopy was really amazing

Positive Comment by basil2
about RichCopy and GS RichCopy 360 Jan 2015

I had used richcopy in the past and loved it, it had some quircks to it but expected beause it was not really commercial software but still it kicked all of its competitors when it came out. That MS engineer who developed it needs a star for sure. too bad MS did not adopt it.

Though when I needed richcopy a couple of months ago, I found gs richcopy360 in my google search. Not sure if they are related as I never asked. It is a commercial product and works really perfectly. I am not sure if the MS engineer who developed richcopy moved and did gs richcopy. that would be terrific.
Anyone knows the engineer at MS that did it?

about RichCopy Jun 2011

Microsoft's UNSUPPORTED RichCopy seems like an admin's dream at first glance: command line switches make it so you can do customized backups when running as a task.

The biggest problem with RichCopy is that there are parts of it that don't work. Exclusions don't seem to work for very many people out there (IE: exclude file by name or by extension, exclude directories by name). This is just a small example but there are many more. There are hordes of very smart people out there that are trying to make this work but the people with the code for this app seem to have lost interest and have moved on to other things.

If you need to copy files quickly and efficiently then this is your app.

If you need to be selective about what you're copying then keep looking because this app will waste hours (or in my case DAYS) of your time trying to make it work the way it should.

RichCopy is a great app, with tons of features. It is developed by Microsoft engineers, specifically for handling large amounts of copies over networks, between drives, etc, in the fastest / best manner possible.

I liked TeraCopy, but it for some reason would often stop copying halfway through. Since then I've been using RIchCopy, and am very impressed.

Being developed by Microsoft, they must know what they're doing. From the help file:

"RichCopy is designed to help people who copy huge number of files between storage devices directly or indirectly over the network by accelerating copy performance and shorten the time people has to spend for file copy operation. This acceleration has been realized by improving network and storage device utilization with technology used for server services.
This new version has improved copy performance from its previous version by optimizing all processes involved. It has actually improved about 10% from RichCopy version 3.5 which already much faster than any other file copy tools."
