A widely configurable alternative copy method that
exceeds the Windows standard copy in many ways, e.g. verification,
reporting, and logging. Custom Copy operations can be backgrounded
To use Custom Copy in place of the Windows standard copy
simply check the option Use Custom Copy for all copy
operations in Configuration | File Operations, or simply click the Use Custom Copy toolbar button. The replacement includes all copy operations like e.g. Copy To,
Paste (Copy) from Clipboard, Drag'n'Drop, and Rich Copy.
The configuration dialog can be opened from Configuration | File Operations or from the right-click menu of the Use Custom Copy toolbar button:
Looking at the configuration dialog above you will immediately notice what Custom Copy has to offer, for example:
Extensive control over the behavior on name collisions.
Decide how to react on errors (e.g. verification failures) before they happen.
Verification supports the following methods: None (no verification), Byte-to-byte, MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, SHA-512.
Option to rename folders on collision instead of overwriting the target folder.
Support for Safe Overwrite, a clever logic that minimizes the risk of data loss due to failures while overwriting (e.g. power out). Learn more...
A progress dialog featuring the ability to pause/resume copying and detailed reports.
Progress dialog paused.
Custom Copy report. A report can be viewed directly from the Progress Dialog. In this case it's a report on "new" files, i.e. files that have been copied without overwriting an existing file.
Optional logging to file. Log files are by default stored in a central location in the appplication data folder.
Support for overlong file names (more than 260 characters).
Custom Copy operations can be backgrounded and queued.
