Teracopy in Windows Server 2008. Do you know this app?

Unread postby [[C|-|E]] » Mon May 14, 2012 10:20 am

This day I came across a very nice app:

http://codesector.com/teracopy

It is a free piece of software that replaces the Windows Explorer copy and move functions and also adds some nice new options: pause and resume file transfer activities, error recovery... I found it when I was setting up my Windows 2008 Server in the old Xeon I use at work (the one that appears in my signature). In theory, the computer is only certified for Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 Server, however, it happily accepts newer versions of Windows and all the Linux distros I have tried if you fight a little bit. In the case of Windows Server 2008, I found the Xeon to be rock solid except when copying large amounts of data at once (more that 30 Gb). In this case, I was consistently obtaining a BSOD until I installed this small app and replaced the original Windows copier. Now it runs smooth as silk.

I was wondering if some of you are using this app or something similar when working with Windows :).

I've used it, but on Windows 7, not 2K8. I've had problems with it crashing mid-copy and generally, for the incremental value it does provide over Windows copy, I didn't feel the need to keep it around.

I use Total Commander (also known as Windows Commander) - you can override the default copy behavior. And you can forget about Windows Explorer and it's new features which get in the way most of the time - it worked well in Win95 but with every new Windows version it was changed for worse.

Well, I discovered what was happening! I had nine corrupted files on the hard disk drive of my laptop. The little guy was complaining about them every time I was doing a backup but it was just that, a complain from Windows telling that the names of the files were wrong and bla, bla. However, this was not the case with the server running Windows 2008, as soon as the computer tried to copy or move them I was obtaining a persistent blue screen. Funny enough, I transferred them to the server from the laptop via FTP and this was not problematic at all. So, I have erased them and the problem is solved. However, I will keep Teracopy, I really like the app :D
