What is Copy Handler?

Copy Handler Main WindowCopy Handler is a free software for Windows systems, which allows you to take full control over the file copy and move operations. Program is highly customizable and fully integrates with the operating system. In addition, Copy Handler offers many advanced options such as task queuing, filtering files according to specific criteria, pausing and resuming copying files operations, changing the copying parameters on the fly and in many cases also offers a significant acceleration of the entire copying files process.

Second beta of Copy Handler 1.40

Last Friday we have released the second beta version of Copy Handler. Apart from usual bugfixes, this version features a significant change in the way files are read and written.
Instead of the blocking IO now Copy Handler uses non-blocking IO. That change should result in significant in copying speed as the reads and writes can be done in parallel instead of being serialized.
Also the task export feature was added to the Custom Copy dialog box. This allows for creating xml files to be used in command line.

Code repositories moved to

Yesterday the code repositories were moved from sourceforge to a dedicated server. Now the repository location is - it is highly suggested to re-download the sources as the externals also changed their addresses.

The move was mainly dictated by the change introducted by staff some time ago separating ro/rw accesses by protocol thus breaking the possibility to have a valid externals.

The old repository will stay on sourceforge for some time (or possibly indefinitely).
