Supercopier is a free downloadable tool that is designed to replace the default file transfer tool available on the Windows operating system, Windows Explorer. Advanced users of file moving and copying software will tend to appreciate this application the most. SuperCopier is the most useful when you are handling many large files.

SuperCopier makes it easier to monitor, control and customize the process of moving or copying files. It can be customized to hold user-defined information such as the time, the source, the user attempting the transfer and the errors that might have occurred during the process. The time limit for copying and moving files can also be customized as well as the length of time between retries after a failed attempt at copying or moving a file.

Once you have downloaded SuperCopier, you will find it minimized on your system tray. Once you click on it to maximize it, it will stay on top of other programs that are running, including the internet browser you happen to be using. The interface is rather basic and could be called more of a configuration board. You are given the option of moving or copying files to a destination folder. This is done through a process of dragging and dropping. When you drag and drop files from Windows Explorer, it initiates SuperCopier to open and allow the users access to all of its features and begin the moving or copying process.

When glitches or errors occur during the moving or copying process of a file, SuperCopier alerts you to the particulars of the problem. You can then either choose to skip the process for that file and start on another, or save it on the list for an attempt at completing the process later. You can also prompt SuperCopier to skip the process of transferring the troublesome file altogether or send it to the end of the queue. If you need to find the file again to complete the process at a later date, there is a search tool built into the software to help you.

SuperCopier is compatible with Windows 2000, Vista, XP, 7 and 8. So far, new versions have been made available every year since its release. Version 4 is the latest version.

Pros:

  • SuperCopier gives users more information about and control of the moving and copying process than Windows Explorer.
  • There is a version available that does not need to be downloaded into your computer. It saves space and can possibly speed up the file transferring process.
  • It gives the user more information and possible solutions when there is a glitch or error than Windows Explorer does.
  • Easy to install and user friendly.

Cons:

  • The transferring of smaller files is not actually faster than Windows Explorer.
  • Even though large numbers of larger files can be managed better, it still isn't faster than Windows Explorer as a whole when tested.
  • Although user friendly, the interface is not of very good quality.
