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.
See our download section to get new version.
And don't forget to report any problems found within this new version.

Today, after very long time, a new alpha release was created.
It mostly concentrates on the under-the-hood improvments including:
- sqlite-based task state storage
- unit testing (framework and a few tests)
- various bugfixes,
- progress and stats handling,
- VS2013 support.

There are a few new functions as well:
- additional stats in main status dialog,
- possibility to disable nagging about registering shell extension,
- shell extension options "Copy To/Move To/MoveTo Special" now allow choosing directory manually.

It still is not production-ready, however I find it quite usable with simple operations.

As always you can download the latest relase from…
More information about the release can be found on official page: and Copy Handler project page: (this one might require importing root certificate or accepting the site certificate in your browser).

Please report all bugs at (or if you can't get a handle of Jira - at my e-mail).

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).
