  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm just starting to use Richcopy, and I was wondering if it's possible to copy an entire directory, including the creating the target directory and then copying all the files into the newly-created directory?  It seems that I have to manually create the new empty target directory, and then use Richcopy to copy the contents to the target directory?

    Also, I'm looking for any hints to speed up copying directories with a bunch of large (multi-gigabyte) files.  I have a Windows 7 Utimate 64-bit machine, with 16GB of RAM.

    Thanks,

    Jim

  • The current speed is fine. You cannot hope that only a copying tool can improve the speed much. Other conditions such as the speed of your hard drives or the structure of your files can also determine how fast the copying speed is.

  • Hi,

    I think that I figured the answer to my 1st question:  There are checkboxes next to the directories in the directory tree view, which I didn't notice.  I checked off the source directories, and that seemed to work, i.e., it created the directories on the target.

     

    I'm still interested in any hints re. speeding up copying.  I've messed around with increasing cache size and # of threads, but that actually seem to slow things down.  I'm currently doing a copy with about 100GB, and it's taking over 40 minutes, from one SATA drive to a different SATA drive (on the same machine).
