GS RichCopy 360 Reviews

Much Better Than Microsoft

about GS RichCopy 360 · · Helpful Not helpful 5 Helpful

Copying files or transferring files on the network can be a hit and miss situation! Sometimes essential files are not copied. If someone has something opened then its not backed up. I heard some good reviews about GS RichCopy 360 and tried it out before buying. It has some features which beats Microsoft's own implementation of file transfer. It provides good information about copy jobs and I can set a job to copy a folder regularly to another computer on the network so my files are in sync. Well worth purchasing GS Richcopy 360, makes life easier.

Well worth it

about GS RichCopy 360 · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful

We were migrating from Windows 2003 to 2012R2 servers. All migration tool are way overpriced. GSRichcopy360 was very affordable and did the job exceptionally. Our main issue was we could not find a way to copy long path (folders 260 characters and up), GS RichCopy 360 did it fine with no problems.

Certainly a great tool and worth every penny (or cent in case you are in USA).

GS RichCopy 360 Folder Copying Suite made with Multithreading Technology

My experience with GuruSquad was a bit our of the norm. We purchased GS Richcopy 360 to backup our workstations (roughly 250 machines). Everything worked fine as expected but we wanted one feature that was minimal and not a lot of customers would use. I mentioned that to the sales guy as that it would have been perfect if it supported that feature too. I did not have any expectations. It was about a week later when the sales guy dropped me an email saying to upgrade to the lastest version as they built that feature in their latest release. I was really blown away that they actually listened to my request and delivered it in a week without us even requesting it as a feature request. I wish all software vendors aim to please their customers like that. Especially after they already collected their money. GuruSquad is really top of my list.

Great multithreading tool... works as advertized

about GS RichCopy 360 · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

We had to copy 4 million files and folders totaling about 9TBs with long file names. We could not find any tool that could do the copying unless we spent thousands of dollars.
GS Richcopy 360 did the job and did it very nicely. the multithreading built in really was a key factor as it used all the cores available plus the long path support.
I do not usually write reviews but this one was a must.

GS Richcopy is the best

about GS RichCopy 360 · · Helpful Not helpful

I have used other softwrares like Robocopy, Teracopy and others but they failed at some point or other. So after searching a lot I found GS Richcopy. And this was the end of all my problems! It was easy to use unlike Robocopy, it provided long path name support unlike teracopy, it utilises all the cores of the CPU through its multi threaded file transfer unlike other software. This is the best that I have seen so far. I am using its enterprise version, its affordable according to the features they provide!

Superior for data replication over WAN

about GS RichCopy 360 and Robocopy GUI, Robocopy · · Helpful Not helpful

We are usually a robocopy shop. However, our latest data migration required a lot of attention and creating batch files or dealing with robocopy NTFS security bug was starting to really slow us down.

Our project on hand was to replicate data to our new data center which means possibly over 500 robocopy scripts (assuming there is one for each server. Robocopy was taking roughly 5 hours to compare differences of 750k files\folders as it had to travel across the WAN link to do the comparison. We tried several other solutions but GS RichCopy 360 enterprise had something that no one else offered, it had a small agent that we could load on the destination side (free license), this agent handled all the communcation and transfer from the client. This made it so the client on the source machine does not have to travel across the WAN to do the compare. The job that took 5 hours with robocopy went down to under 10 minutes with the gs richcopy 360 enterprise. This feature is only available in enterprise, it is not in standard.

Take advantage of the volume licensing in case you are doing multiple servers so you do not have to pay the full license price. it is not advertised on their website that such licensing is offered.

Very useful when copying open files like psts and quickbook files

about GS RichCopy 360 · · Helpful Not helpful

We have been using gsrichcopy 360 for a while now and it is great when you want to backup your computer to the network or an external drive. it runs by itself to the scheduler and copies all the open files too which was very important in my case.
