ERROR 418 - I'm a teapotover a year ago
Should I remove it ? Never. This is one of the first programs that gets slip-streamed into my new builds. You never have to deal w/ WinBlows cannot copy file errors ever again. If a file cannot be copied, it will throw you an error and ask what you want to do, then continue transferring the rest of the files. When it's done, you can list the uncopied files & decide what to do from there. Copy and Paste functions are also (4)x-(n)x faster than WinBlows depending on your system.

Highly recommend over Window's copier. Copied 200 GB from one portable hard drive to another in only an hour.

best way to copy files under windows, unlike windows copy it does not stop by an error, you can still continue with the other files. Very good with big folders. Problems with network folders. I will suggest it, with the option scroll lock under settings, so you can switch between windows copy and teracopy with one key
