It can copy/delete unicode and over MAX_PATH(260byte) pathname files.
|Diff HDD||Reading and writing are processed with the MultiThreading in parallel.|
|Same HDD||Using big buffer, reading until the buffer becomes full, and writing in bulk.|
Because Read/Write doesn’t use the cache of OS at all, other processes (application) do not become heavy easily.
Read/Write performance is a near the limit of the device.
Include/Exclude Filter (UNIX Wildcard style) can be specified.
It operates lightly because MFC is not used, and it makes it only from Win32 API.

(The short cut is made with the copy to the Install directory. )
Please copy and use only fastcopy.exe and fastcopy.chm when storing in the USB memory etc. and using it. (In this case, the shell enhancing cannot be used. )
(Removing short cut and Uninstalling shell extension. )
When the shell extension is installed, a complete deletion becomes after OS reboot.
(In addition, the icon rotates while the copy is operating. )
The screen explanation is as follows.
Source / DestDir
(The tenth is memorized in default in the past. )
When two or more Source is specified (possible drag & drop), it delimits it by the semicolon.
When the CTL key is pushed at the drag & drop to Source, it becomes shape added to a present content of Source.
(A present content of Source is cleared when not pushing. )
Moreover, the drop of the DestDir input column (directory) is also possible.
About unlike behavior that DestDir ends ‘\’ character or not.
|Diff (No Overwrite)||When the same file name exists, it doesn’t copy it.|
|Diff (size/date)||If it exists same filename, it copies only when the size or date is different. (default)|
|Diff (update)||If it exists same filename, it copies only when the source file date is newer.|
|Copy (Overwrite)||It always copies.|
|Sync (size/date)||If it exists same filename, it copies only when the size or date is different.
In addition, all files/directories that do not exist in source files/directories are deleted.
|Move (Overwrite)||It always copies, and the copy origin is force deleted. (it is able to change “Move (Overwrite)” -> “Move (size/date)” in settings dialog.)|
|Delete||The specified files and directories are force deleted.|
Button & option specification
|Execute||The copy operation is executed. It changes into the Cancel… button while executing it.
(The confirmation dialog to which the source list is displayed comes out when Execute is pushed while pushing the CTL key)
|Listing||The files that will be copied & deleted is listed and displayed. ‘+’ means creating/updating, and ‘-‘ means deleting.|
|Buffer specify||The size of the buffer used for Read/Write is specified by the unit of MB.|
|Speed Control||Specify “Full Speed”, “Auto Slow”(*1), “90%”~”10%”, “Suspend”. If you feel heavy, I recommend to set “Auto Slow” (If it is detected mouse moving/active window changing, it is slowed for a minutes). If “Full Speed” isn’t selected, low process priority class is set.
(this setting is not saved by job manage)
|Non Stop||It doesn’t interrupt even if the error occurs by Read/Write/Delete etc. , and it keeps operating as much as possible.
(However, remain in the error display column and the error log.)
|Verify||Verifying written files by MD5(or SHA-1. If you want to use SHA-1, write [main] Using_MD5=0 in fastcopy.ini)|
|Estimate FinishTime||The completion time is forecast by examining the number of total files and the size of a total file of the copy origin before it begins to copy it. (It is not possible to forecast in the deletion mode.)|
|Top||It always displays it on the foremost side.|
|Start at once||Execution begins at once without waiting for the completion when other FastCopy is executing. (This button doesn’t show when other FastCopy isn’t coping or deleting). )|
(*1) It is started if fastcopy window is not foreground and it is detected mouse moving. Because inserting wait beetween I/O operations, changing process priority, changing I/O priority(Vista), changing maximum I/O size, operation speed is limited.
|ACL||Copy Access Control List(ACL) on NTFS|
|Alt Stream||Copy Alternate Stream on NTFS|
|OverWrite & Delete (prevent for undelete)||Renaming filename and Overwritintg Randam data before deleting. Alternate stream is not overwriting. If NSA method is checked in setting dialog, Overwriting Randam data process runs 2 times and overwriting 0 data process runs 1 time.|
|Filter||It specifies whether Include/Exclude filter is effective or ineffective. Note: At Move mode, filter is always ineffective.|
|Include||Only the files/directories that matches to a specified strings(UNIX Wildcard style) are copied. When the directory is specified, ‘\’ is given to the end of the character string. if it is no specified strings for directory or file, it is considered that * or *\ is specified. When the plural is specified, it delimits it by the semicolon. (example: *.txt; My Folder [0-9]\)
When Include to deletion mode + file is specified, the directory is not deleted.
|Exclude||The files/directories that matches to a specified strings are excluded.|
|*||Arbitrary character of 0 characters or more|
|?||one arbitrary character|
|[abc]||One character of any of abc|
|[!abc]||Excluding one character of any of abc. Even ‘^’ is acceptable instead of ‘!’.|
|[a-z]||One arbitrary character to a-z|
|\||Escape character (except for string end’s ‘\’ means a directory)|
(Attention: The future, the filter specification form might be greatly changed.)
Junction and SymLink
|Diff/Copy||In default, Copy Junction/Symlink itself. it is able to change to Copy Junction/Symlnk’s targeted file/dir.|
|Move||it is always copied Junction/Symlink itself.|
|Delete||it is always deleted Junction/Symlink itself.|
Job Manage -> Add/Del Job
|Add/Updat||Add/Update main window contents(Source/DestDir, commnad mode, filter settings, buffer size, ignore error option, estimate option, Auto/Same/Diff HDD mode) as the unit of job.|
|Delete||Delete registered job.|
Settings -> Main Settings
Settings -> Shell Extensions
Settings -> Auto/Same/Diff HDD mode
Swap Source DestDir
When Source has multiple paths, this menu will be disabled.
6. Command Line
fastcopy.exe [/options] file1 file2 … [/to=dest_dir]
The option that can be specified is as follows.
(Please do not put the blank before and behind “=”)
/cmd=(noexist_only|diff|update|sync|force_copy|move|delete) … Basic operation specification.
(Diff mode when cmd specification is omitted. When delete is specified, “/to=dest_dir” specification is unnecessary. )
noexist_only Diff (No Overwrite) diff Diff (size/date) update Diff (update) force_copy Copy (Overwrite) sync Sync (size/date) move Move (Overwrite) delete Delete
/auto_close … After the copy is success complete, it closes automatically.
/force_close … After the copy is success/error complete, it closes compulsorily.
/open_window … It doesn’t store it in the task tray. (specification and unnecessary when not beginning to execute it at once)
/estimate … Estimating finishTime.
/no_exec … It sets parameters to main window, but it doesn’t start to execute.
/no_confirm_del … The operation beginning is not inquired at /Delete.
/no_confirm_stop … Even if critical error occur, don’t show error dialog.
/error_stop … When the error occurs, popup error dialog and operation is interrupted. (to disable, /error_stop=FALSE)
/bufsize=N(MB) … The size of the buffer is specified by the unit of MB.
/log … The log is output to log file(fastcopy.log). (to disable, /log=FALSE)
/logfile=filename … Specifing the log filename.
/utf8 … Logging as UTF-8
/skip_empty_dir … skip to copy empty directory at using /include or /exclude. (to disable, /log=FALSE)
/job=job_name … Specifing the job that is already registered.
/force_start … execute without waiting for another running fastcopy. (to disable, /log=FALSE)
/disk_mode=(auto|same|diff) … specify Auto/Same/Diff HDD mode. (default: Auto)
/speed=(full|autoslow|9-1(90%-10%)|suspend) … specify speed control level.
/include=”…” … The Include filter is specified. (details)
/exclude=”…” … The Exclude filter is specified. (details)
/acl … Copying ACL (NTFS only) (to disable, /acl=FALSE)
/stream … Copying Altenate Stream (NTFS only) (to disable, /stream=FALSE)
/overwrite_del … Renaming filename and Overwritintg Randam data before deleting.
/reparse … Copying junction/mountpoint/symlink itself (to disable, /reparse=FALSE)
/verify … Verifying written files by MD5(or SHA-1) (to disable, /verify=FALSE)
(Parts of the above-mentioned options will change the specification in the near future)
In the synchronous mode, file & directory of the copy destination is compelling deleted according to the situation.
In the deletion mode, the files and directories are always deleted.
(deletion after it is cleared when attribute only for reading is attached)
There is a miserable possibility to result if there is a bug by any chance.

|v1.40||Addition of job management function. Addition of preview listing function. Addition of multiple fastcopy process control option. When the filter is specified, the option not to make an empty folder is added. Addition of automatic operation/same/another HDD mode specification. The resize of the main window is possible. Informative label of API error. Additionally, refinement|

|v1.31||It is corrected to have fallen immediately after execution when a lot of specification is done with the Include/Exclude filter occasionally.|
|v1.30||Include/Exclude filter function addition. When drug & is dropped in the same directory, the reproduction is made possible. It adds it by the Source selection the file selection dialog. In addition, some speed-up. Do not end excluding the deletion mode automatically when start by way of the shell + canceling. Other refinement.|
|v1.21||A part of phenomenon of not coming out the shell enhancing menu in the environment (It is v1.20’s enbug) is corrected.|
|v1.20||Forecast function addition of copy completion time. It is corrected not to have functioned occasionally though it two or more file selection + opens by enhancing the shell. Other refinement|
|v1.12||Option of making to submenu addition of shell enhancing. It is corrected to have hardened when a large amount of file is selected by way of the shell occasionally (Only v1.10-1.11). The behavior of the shell enhancing with Nettowarcpras is changed. Other refinement|
