FastCopy 3.0 ramps up your PC performance

13 August 2015, Mike Williams

FastCopyIt’s been a long three years since the last update, but open source Windows file copier FastCopy has just roared back to life with a major new release.

New support for overlapped I/O should improve file transfer performance, especially for network copies. It’s now possible to run multiple FastCopys in parallel if they’re using different drives, and the 64-bit edition may be able to improve speeds even further by using a buffer of 4096MB or more.

The latest build provides more control over the files to be copied, with relative include/ exclude filters, and an optional tolerance when comparing timestamps.

The interface is basic, but it’s now easier to run the program from scripts or scheduled tasks

A no_ui switch makes it easier to run file copies in a script or as a scheduled task

Smarter logging – including an option to record timestamps and file size details in the log – helps you understand what’s happened later, if necessary.

There are various small interface tweaks, the program license has switched from BSD to GPLv3, and of course it’s all now compatible with everything from Windows XP to 10.

FastCopy 3.0 and FastCopy 3.0 (64-bit) are available now.
