If you’re looking for an alternative to the native Windows file copier, SuperCopier is lightning fast, customizable, and includes features like file prioritization.
The default handler in Windows Vista/7 is light years ahead of the clunk handler found in earlier versions of Windows. It’s still, however, kludgy at best and leaves little room for customization. SuperCopier not only copies files faster between locations but includes really great features like the ability to prioritize a file in the queue. Let’s say you’re copying a huge batch of files from one drive to another and you realize that you need a few of the files to copy first. You can easily jump into the copy queue in SuperCopier and bump them up to the top of the list. SuperCopier also keeps an error log, allows for speed limiting, custom responses to file collisions and copy errors, and the ability to keep the copy window open after the file transfer for review of errors and other information.
SuperCopier is freeware, Windows only.
