FreeCommander / FastCopy

#1 Post by CarmeloLabadie » 15.07.2021, 09:06

When moving/copying files, whether within the same drive or slave drive or to USB Portable drives, which is the better way to go FreeCommander or FastCopy ? I think they use different ways to do it and have faster abilities and or more or less errors. I also wanted to know about what setting is better for FreeCommander in the File/Folder Operations section of settings, you can tell it to "Use Windows" or "Use FreeCommander", what's better there ? Which is why I posted here instead of in General. Fast copy uses its own I believe making it faster, better, fewer errors etc, Not even sure I get the real difference between the 2 programs yet.

You will not see any big difference using FastCopy or FC in a normal environment
but its no problem to combine them by creating buttons in FC
using the command line arguments of FastCopy.
For example my Copy button for the selected files with FastCopy
Program: C:\Tools\FastCopy\FastCopy.exe
Parameter: /auto_close /cmd=diff /balloon=FALSE /estimate /srcfile="%ActivSelAsFileUtf8%" /to="%InactivDir%"

You can also configure to use FastCopy as External program in FC for Copy, Move and Delete

I prefer TeraCopy which handles copyimg conflicts much easier.
