Snubs Report: TeracopyIf you’ve ever copied a file in Windows you know there are certain quirks that can sometimes be a pain. Like bizaire estimated file transfer times or constant questions interrupting transfers.

That’s why I think Teracopy should be a part of every geek and IT professional’s arsenal.

It’s faster then the windows native function and allows for advanced queing, pausing, and error correction. It’ll even verify a batch after copy completion.

The free version will likely do the trick for 90% of you — otherwise the paid pro version is 15 Euro.

With easy shell integration that’ll replace the built in copy, as well as a portable version, there’s a lot to love with Teracopy.
