General discussion and feedback / HDD totally fragmented after using Copy Handler!!
« Last post by revnu on March 28, 2017, 04:53:17 pm »

I want to report something, that really makes me not use Copy Handler.

I just copied my old HDD (more than 1TB) to a fresh HDD (both NTFS). I decided to copy the files and not to clone, because the old drive was a little bit fragmented and I wanted a fresh start.
As im used from copying with Windows explorer it just copies file bye file, and they not fragmented afterwards. But not with Copy Handler....I get terrible Results. See the attachments. My sourcedrive has only 300 fragmented files. But on the fresh drive, Copy Handler copied on, their are 26705 fragmented files. To be honest its totally fragmented afterwards, so Im going to copy all files again with Windows explorer. Man thats a senseless worndown of my drive, if I knew that before, I would never use CP  >:(

See this as critic, bugreport....or tell me why this could be normal!

Great job highlighting the pros of this software. Just like CopyHandler and other software that I've tried, they worked fine until recently when there were errors/crashes when I was copying large files. I had no choice but to do the process over again. I browsed several forums and tried suggestions and there was one suggestion that I highly recommend myself which is GS RichCopy 360. It is worth giving a try. Hope this helps.

It has to contain the shortcut list - there is no other place those settings are stored. Please make sure you're looking at the right ch.xml file.
I have filed the feature request for you at, although I can't really say if/when it will be implemented.

Except that the ch.xml file doesn't seem to contain the "shortcut list" for favourite copy\move to locations. It would be nice if CopyHandle had Export\Import Settings options.

Thank you for the report. I've filed it under:

I tried to reproduce the problem on Win10 and Win7 with CH 1.50beta1 and it really seem to work without issue (could you please re-test with that version?).
If I'm going to fix the problem I'll need your help to do so.

If you're willing to help, please attach here (or send me an e-mail to ixen-at-copyhandler-com) with the following information:
1. The ch.xml configuration (you can find it at C:\Users\<your-user-name>\AppData\Local\Copy Handler
2. The crash dump if you can handle it - the short instruction could be found here:
Also, please check if you already have such dumps automatically generated by system in here: C:\Users\<your-user-name>\AppData\Local\CrashDumps (search for files with "explorer" in name).
3. The screenshot of the explorer context menu (the one with "(CH) Paste" as well as the one with "(CH) Copy here").

I also can't copy files to other devices.
So I can't copy anything to a flash drive, for example, no matter what method I try.

Only the second part.

NO form of copying works. (even if cut)

Only MOVE works. (but not cut-paste-move -- only drag-n-drop move)

I don't know how to create a crash dump for Explorer.
It's such a low-level program I would be surprised if that was possible.

I am using "Ditto". But it still doesn't work if I turn Ditto off. (exit and close the resident program)
