logoA new version of FastCopy Portable has been released. FastCopy is a file copying and move utility that automatically selects the best method of copying. Because reading/writing are processed with no OS cache at all, other applications aren't slowed down as much. Both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions are included and automatically switched between for maximum performance. It's packaged in Format so it can easily integrate with the Platform. Free for personal use only.

Update automatically or install from the portable app store in the Platform.


ScreenshotFastCopy is a fast copy and delete utility. It supports UNICODE and over MAX_PATH (260 characters) file pathnames. It automatically selects different methods according to whether Source and DestDir are in the same or different HDD. Because Reading/Writing are processed with no OS cache at all, other applications don't easily become slow. It can achieve Reading/Writing performance that is close to device limit. Include/Exclude Filter (UNIX Wildcard style) can be specified. It runs fast and does not hog resources, because MFC is not used. (Designed using Win32 API and C Runtime only). Both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions are included and the correct one automatically used for your current PC.

With the 5.x release, only personal use is allowed for free. Business use now requires a free license. Platform users will automatically see the new EULA on upgrade. I have packaged both the last version that allowed business use for free (4.2.2) and the last open source version (3.63) as independent packages available for download on the site and within the PA.c Platform:

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
