Copy or move files from one location to another, sync data, and carry out secure deletion actions with the help of this simple piece of software
It’s no surprise that users and software developers alike wish to do all computer-related things faster and copying or moving files from one location to another is among the most common endeavors that often take more time than we are willing to spend on it.
Solving this issue is exactly the purpose of FastCopy, a simply yet very efficient solution that serves exactly the same purpose as the standard Windows copy function, but it does it better. It is also capable of providing quick synchronization and secure deletion functions.
The advantages of being portable
FastCopy is easy to run because it comes as an executable file with no setup kit, so the whole thing practically comes down to a single double click.
It is important to mention that the tool does not leave any traces in the Windows Registry, and you may copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices and take it with you whenever you need to enhance the file copying or moving process.
The interface is clean but you might find it a bit difficult at the first glance. It’s full of options and although FastCopy was designed to be a simple app, some could find it not so easy to use.
Copying or moving options
To start using it right away, just pick the source and the destination folder and you’re basically ready to go. Of course, there are some other options available, such as copying only the files that are different in size or date.
Check out info about the current task
Probably the greatest thing about FastCopy is that it also provides a set of very useful details regarding the copying process, such as the transfer rate, the file rate and the total time it needed to complete the operation. This way, it provides you with a means of monitoring its performance.
Testing its performance
During our tests FastCopy did a great job and shaved off a few seconds compared to the default ‘Copy’ action provided by Windows. Nevertheless, you should pay extra caution when selecting the method of transferring files because you can lose information.
For example selecting ‘Copy’ or ‘Move’ will overwrite files identical to ones coming from the source if they are already present in the destination directory.
An overall efficient and reliable file management tool
Overall, if you’re tired with the speed Windows’ copy function provides, FastCopy will come in very handy. Also, thanks to a strong feature pack, it is able to do a lot more than simply move files from one folder into another.
