Is there a queue copy program available for Windows 7?

When copying a lot of files all from different locations to the same location, using Windows Explorer, Windows always creates multiple copy processes, slowing everything down.

"I use TeraCopy for this. Simply a much better tool than the default copy handler for Windows.

And it handles file copies sequentially instead of trying to multitask everything simultaneously resulting in NO performance.

Note: TeraCopy is free for non-commercial use only. For commercial use you need to buy a license."

"For those addicted to (or just with a fondness for) the command line, there is always:


which is shipped ""in the box"" with Vista and Windows 7, too:


ROBOCOPY :: Robust File Copy for Windows

Started : Mon Aug 01 21:50:48 2011

Simple Usage :: ROBOCOPY source destination /MIR

source :: Source Directory (drive:\path or \\server\share\path).
destination :: Destination Dir (drive:\path or \\server\share\path).
/MIR :: Mirror a complete directory tree.

For more usage information run ROBOCOPY /?

**** /MIR can DELETE files as well as copy them !"

"I use TeraCopy on all my Windows 7 machines.

TeraCopy is designed to copy and move files at the maximum possible speed. It skips bad files during the copying process, and then displays them at the end of the transfer so that you can see which ones need attention. TeraCopy can automatically check the copied files for errors by calculating their CRC checksum values. It also provides a lot more information about the files being copied than its Windows counterpart. TeraCopy integrates with Windows Explorer's right-click menu and can be set as the default copy handler."

"You can use MyFileQueue, a program that I developed:


I wrote this file queue program to help my colleagues and I to copy our large files between external hard drives. Using MyFileQueue we simply build a list of files in a queue using a file manager like interface, then when we've picked all the files we click the start button. MyFileQueue then runs through the queue one file at a time eliminating the USB bottleneck. There are a few other features such as runtime stats, pause/resume etc."
