        A long time ago when I was using Windows 7 I was having trouble with the built in copy command which would freeze up or not finish copying a file.  Some very nice person here recommended a copy proggy ( not sure if it was x-copy or some other prog) which fixed the problem.  I’ve since gotten a new computer running Windows 10 and can’t find that program.  It was very simple and had a “copy with …..” in the menu.  I looked at x-copy and it seemed quite complicated to use, I’m looking for something very simple like I had.  Anyone have any ideas?

         

        I just looked for my previous posts and found the one that I asked about 6 years ago and lo and behold, there was my answer.  It was Teracopy.  Many many thanks guys for keeping stuff around for so long.

        Thanks again to F.U.N. for my answer 6 years and 2 months ago – LOL

         

        I’ve downloaded the latest version of Teracopy and it’s working great on Win10.  You guys are all the greatest.

          Teracopy is really an excellent copy app.

        Shadow,

        Look into RoboCopy it’s built into Windows and works great.

        HTH 😎
