  • Thanks for the useful article.
    But now I suggest other powerful quickly file transferring tools like TaraCopy.
    You can easily download and install the latest version than very speedy copy or move any large file from different storage.

  • terracopy have inability to shuffle or recorder the queue, inability to remove files from copy queue and on other hand ultracopy have no speed and buffer size control/no filtring option…its better to use some other good tools like gs rich copy 360/fastcopy.
