Are you constantly transferring files on your PC, especially large ones? I know most people are transferring large files to and from PC and hard drives now, and the Windows transfer does not cut it, at all. The default File Explorer can be slow and unreliable, stopping entire file transfers for errors rather than ignoring them and continuig the operation. 

If you are one of the many users frustrated with how reliably Windows Explorer copies and moves files, there is a fantastic bit of freeware out there that could speed up your transfers, and will certainly make them more stable. 


Read on to discover more about TeraCopy and how it can help to copy files smarter in Windows 10 & 11. 

TeraCopy - A Free to Use Transfer Program

TeraCopy also comes packed with advanced options that can let you interact with files in ways you cant with the Windows File Explorer. 

If you've not heard of it, TeraCopy is a program with a pretty illustrious history. It was first released back in 2007, as a tool that promised to increase the file transfer speed of Windows XP. It did that pretty well too, as well as adding numerous other features not supported by native file transfers. While the modern version of File Explorer is much faster than it used to be, it still suffers from poor stability and lacks a lot of useful features. 


TeraCopy has some really great features to it as well, including the option to pause/resume transfers, error recovery (which, unlike windows, will skip the error instead of ending the transfer), and it even gives a sort of manifest of the contents of the transfer! This program replaces File Explorer copying, so it is as simple and click and drag.There are also premium features available, for anyone who wants to go Pro.
