Copying files should not take forever! October 2, 2008 9:04 am

I am laying in some significant code changes so I am making a backup of my development environment. No, I’m not using SVN or other revision control as I should be. Windows takes forever to make a copy! In Linux this could have been done almost before I finished typing the command. File copies should not be measured in, "sure, go to the store, buy dinner supplies, come home and cook then I’ll be done copying" time!

I don’t know where I would be without TeraCopy.


Also, XXCOPY is not too shabby. (http://www.xxcopy.com/)

Ah! An homage to xcopy. Schweet! I’ll give Teracopy a look. Thanks.
