TeraCopy Comments

TerraCopy used to work, now just buggy

Negative Comment by tno2007

The updates that was made, made this program very unstable and unusable. I had to switch back to Windows Explorer.


Crashes while copying a large amount of files.

about TeraCopy Sep 2016

The software crashes while copying a large amount (usually over 50GB). I'm going to switch to Microsoft Richcopy or FastCopy


Consistently Unstable

Negative Comment by DillonSylvestre
about TeraCopy Jun 2016

I've tried using TeraCopy on & off for years and it's always given me issues. Would not recommend using this software at all (stable or beta).

I will note that it has been less stable on Windows 10 than in previous versions of Windows.

The most annoying aspect of this program is that when a transfer job fails, it doesn't provide any kind of workaround.


FastCopy is better 1 Helpful

Comment by blackboard
about TeraCopy May 2014

I used to use TeraCopy when that was the only thing available that could do basic file integrity checks. Now I use FastCopy, which is faster, free, open source (BSD instead of GPL!), and has many more features. The best part is that it's available in the PortableApps suite, so you always have it with you, and you never have to worry about checking for new versions (it's automatic).

Comment by LauraCardinalis
about TeraCopy Jun 2011

Excuse me, but TeraCopy is crap. Why? Because it fragments the files, even if copied to a blank, freshly formatted hdd. I compared it to UltraCopier, FastCopy and KillCopy. These programs do not unnecessarily fragment the files. And with UltraCopier and KillCopy you can even pre-allocate the disk space to makes sure no fragmentation occurs. However, UltraCopier has a big problem: You cannot start it without admin rights. Also, it crashes Windows Explorer regularly. So, the best alternatives are FastCopy and KillCopy.

Comment by uebermensch
about TeraCopy Jun 2011

I tried it but really can't see the advantage. First, it introduces a stange slack time when I start a copy process and I find me asking if it works or not and second, when the dialog pops up it gives wrong information about the time it needs to copy and progress bar is also incorrect. Perhaps I am the only one experiencing these lacks. Anyway, I deinstalled it again.

about TeraCopy Jun 2011

To the moderators who may not see the point of my adding this as an alternative- it's because of the function that checksums the copy operation.
