TeraCopy is a free software designed to copy/move files faster and more secure. One of the most common complaints about newer versions of Windows is the slow copying speed, especially when transferring lots of files over the network. If you want to speed up your copying or if you regularly transfer large amounts of data and have to stop the process to perform some other disk-intensive task, this program may be just what you need.
  • Verify files after copy
  • Preserve date timestamps    
  • Copy locked files
  • Integrate with Windows Explorer
  • Run a shell script on transfer completion
  • Generate and verify checksum files
  • Delete files securely
  • Use in a commercial environment
  • Edit file lists
  • Manage favorite folders
  • Export reports in HTML and CSV formats
TeraCopy is designed to copy and move files at the maximum possible speed. It skips bad files during the copying process and then displays them at the end of the transfer so that you can see which ones need attention. TeraCopy can automatically check the copied files for errors by calculating their CRC checksum values. It also provides a lot more information about the files being copied than its Windows counterpart. The app integrates with Windows Explorer's right-click menu and can be set as the default copy handler.

Features and Highlights

Fix problems easily
In case of a copy error the tool will try to recover and, in the worst-case scenario, will simply skip the problematic file, not terminating the entire transfer. It can also wait for network or device reconnection. Unnecessary files can be skipped to reduce the transfer time. During the process, the program shows detected errors and lets you fix the problem and recopy only the problem files.

File verification
The app can verify files after copy to ensure they are identical. This is done by comparing the hashes of source and target files. Supported algorithms: CRC32, MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, SHA-512, Panama, Tiger, RipeMD, Whirlpool, and xxHash.

Confirm drag'n'drop
The tool can optionally show a confirmation dialog on every drag and drop operation. It can prevent you from moving folders accidentally from one location to another.

Faster workflow
The software can keep a history of recently used directories, as well as show folders that are open in Explorer and other file managers.

Shell integration
The tool can completely replace the Explorer copy and move functions, enabling you to work with files as usual.

Export reports - Pro
Save file lists with all related information as HTML and CSV files.

Edit file lists - Pro
Unnecessary files and folders can be removed to reduce the transfer time.

Preserve date timestamps
The app keeps the original time and date of files when copying.

Trusted by forensic experts
Tera Copy is included in DEFT (Digital Evidence & Forensics Toolkit).

Copy locked files
Copy files using an elevated Windows Service and Volume Shadow Copy if required.

Note: Advanced file list management functions are not available. TeraCopy is free for non-commercial use only.
