Copy files in a blink
Copying large sets of files has always been a hassle, as it not only takes a lot of time to move from one location to another, but the entire process of selecting, dragging, and pasting is rather stress-inducing. Till the entire process is not complete, there is always a risk of the process being terminated and must be started all over again. With TeraCopy, this process of copying and pasting becomes controlled, easy to perform, and secure
A simple interface opens up, with tabs of the File list, Target, Options, and Log. While copying and pasting, you can verify the files to see that they have been copied identically. In the same window, users can see the file’s current location, and the desired destination, and a status bar shows the progress. Users can also choose the option to be asked for confirmation when a drag and drop action has occurred, so the wrong set of files doesn’t get copied
The workflow is clear and intuitive, where all different aspects of the process can be visible by just switching tabs. The program does complete Shell integration, and users do not need to use File Explorer to search for files. The Interactive file list also shows the transfers which have corrupted and failed to be pasted. There is also an option to fix the issue and copy the file again, eliminating the process of checking the copied files at the destination manually
