ToolTip: Copy Handler

You probably know that problem, you’ve started copying a bunch of files or folders from A to B and BANG at some stage you get an error or maybe you just have to move to another place and don’t have network connectivity for a short while. Copy Handler can help here.

Although Copy Handler also supports “moving” data, I do personally actually never move data, but rather first copy and then delete. Well possible that I am a bit conservative here, but I rather know something got copied properly before deleting something, if a move operation fails you might find yourself in an unpleasant situation.

Copy Handler provides the following features:

  • allow full-control over the copying or moving process by pause, resume, restart and cancel features;
  • copying files faster than standard MS Windows copying (when copying data from one partition to another on the same physical hard disk);
  • program is fully customizable – over 60 detailed options – from setting language (multiple languages) through auto-resume on error, shutting down system after copying finished to very detailed and technical (customizing copy/move thread – buffer sizes, thread priority, …) ending on sounds on specific events;
  • multiple languages support – and more may appear, since the translation process is quite easy;
  • provides detailed information about copy/move process (current file, buffer sizes, priority, progress by size and visual bar, status, current and average speed, time elapsed/left, …);
  • can automatically resume all unfinished operations when system starts;
  • limiting count of simultaneously processing tasks (copying/moving) – tasks are set into a queue and are processed in order it was inserted into queue;
  • integration with system – adds additional commands to context menus of folders and drag&drop menus;
  • this program is open source – just download and use…

Copy Handler is FREE and can be downloaded from here
