Select files for transferring within TeraCopy

Copying and moving files within Windows is such a mundane, everyday task that it’s easy to assume it’s the best it could possibly be. The truth is somewhat different: when it comes to copying files – particularly a large number of files – Windows is pretty mediocre. You could be saving yourself seconds – even minutes – each time you copy files from one drive or folder to another by taking advantage of third-party software.

TeraCopy is one such program that bypasses the Windows shell to take full advantage of the drive technologies on offer to optimise your file transfers. It offers a lot more than just speeding up file transfers too: pause and resume file transfers – perfect if a long transfer is interfering with other Windows processes, for example. When two identically named files are encountered, you can also configure the program to behave a certain way by default (such as renaming one of the files or not overwriting).

The program also intelligently handles file errors: it will attempt to re-copy the file a number of times before moving on to the next one instead of throwing a hissy fit and abandoning the entire process. Again, you control how the program handles these errors, and if failures are encountered, TeraCopy will list them after the file transfer is complete, giving you options to deal with them. You can even test and verify files both pre- and post-transfer, adding an extra layer of protection to important files and folders.

This portable version works as a standalone application – if you want to use TeraCopy in place of Windows’ own copy/move functions, install the full software instead by clicking the link below.
 

Verdict:

Speed up file transfers and improve the way Windows copies and moves files with this free application.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
