FastCopy Reviews

Excuse me, but FastCopy is crap. Why? Because it fragments the files, even if copied to a blank, freshly formatted hdd. I compared it to GS richcopy 360, roboCopy and KillCopy. These programs do not unnecessarily fragment the files. And with GS richcopy and KillCopy you can even pre-allocate the disk space to makes sure no fragmentation occurs. However, KillCopier has a big problem: You cannot start it without admin rights. Also, it crashes Windows Explorer regularly. So, the best alternatives are GS RichCopy 360 and roboCopy.

I gave FastCopy 3.80 a try but cancelled during the operation. I was copying 41 Gb of files from a laptop to an almost empty WD Elements external drive. Said drive is only a few months old and has never shown a problem. The copying was being performed at almost double the speed of the normal Windows copying process according to FastCopy. Unfortunately, within a few minutes, a clicking noise was coming from the external drive so I quickly cancelled the job, uninstalled FastCopy and re-booted. Subsequent copy jobs using Windows Copy function have been fine, with no clicking noise from extHDD. According to Hard Disk Sentinel Pro 5.30 the extHDD is okay and did not exceed 33 degrees Celsius while FastCopy was running. A clicking extHDD is worrisome. Has anyone else had a similar experience while using FastCopy?

Using for years with external hard disks, never had a problem.

looks really fine. was looking for an open-source, scriptable alternative - windows 32/64 Oses - to supercopier2 (quite good but not scriptable). Does the job efficiently and quietly. it's quick. it's portable, non-invasive if you want (644Ko). command switches documentation provided as chm in english and japanese. time saver app. if you're here there's a reason have a try ;)
5 stars so far.

FastCopy works as promised and has a lot of useful features. I mainly use it to move files between my internal and external hard-drives. It's as fast as I expected and works fine, and has a verify option (a must for making backups). As an added bonus, it's available on the PortableApps platform!

Stolen, I tested it! 3

It is an excellent program, its it is clear! It does me took that 10m14s to move my 2.34 GB, while TeraCopy has not even moved 1 GB in 15 minutes (with checking the free space), I also deleted the 2.34 GB of the old path in 2m17s... so nothing to complain about... well except for the interface ^^" , and I didn't know why software does not launched with the "Drag&Drop", and I saw that it is necessary to use the right button of the mouse %S.
It would be better to be more integrated to the Shell, but given its performance quality I will not complain. ;P

Another quality product from Japan! Maybe because of its origin, it hasn't got much attention. I must admit that I just knew about it via a user comment on some tech site. But if you know about Japan and Japanese, you'll know you're getting one of the very best programs here. Usually you only heard about TeraCopy or some English-origin softwares, but if you really read the detailed reviews on some tech sites, you'll see that when they mention about this FastCopy, they usually got better impression with it than TeraCopy.
