General support / Re: What does "Append" mean?
« Last post by Ixen on November 26, 2016, 10:22:35 am »
I was going to write that it means the destination file will have the missing 3 bytes appended. But it's much more tricky, and in that specific scenario, with disabled buffering (settings) it will replace the destination file.
That comes from the requirements related to the n-buffering operations, where reads and writes has to be aligned to a sector size boundary (CH uses 4k blocks). In this case, when you schedule "append", ch rewinds the destination file to the nearest multiple of 4k, and then appends the data.
Basically it comes down to the naming of the button. It should be named something like "Resume copying". I'm filing it under

Many thanks.

Sorry for leaving that information out:

Does it eat that much CPU after fresh launch or only after doing some operations there?
Both, after starting it and after some operations. Or after fresh installation: sorry, I cannot remember it anymore, respectively, may be I didn't noticed it at the beginning, but it might have been like that form the beginning. When I start CH now, it immediately uses such big recourse of the CPU.
Auto/manual rename - this is not yet implemented, but was already filed here:
Dialogs on-top - in theory they are showing on top, but with each new Windows system making window on-top becomes harder, as they are actively prevent it to happen. There is also a problem with such windows showing on top and stealing focus - when you write something and CH steals focus that way, you might inadverdently choose some option from the dialog box.
Great, thank you very much!

So, I guess in the next update this will not occur anymore.

Thanks again
General support / Re: How can one make FreeCommander work with CopyHandler?

I have played with FreeCommander for some time since you first post and it seems it just forces standard Windows copy when pressing F5.
There is the possibility of dragging and dropping the files between panes to be able to use CH.

As for overriding F5 button - free commander allows using command line program to make the copy. At this point however CH uses xml-based task scheduling which does not integrate easily into that workflow.
I have to think about easier command line interface for that purpose (I have updated the command-line related task:

Can you post here which version of CH are you using?

Thanks for the bug report - I have confirmed it on my version too. I have filed it here:

General support / File Verification
« Last post by mbc0 on November 25, 2016, 11:33:36 am »

I have been getting a lot of errors with Teracopy lately and it has been painfully slow at times, just found this and it is very fast and just what I am looking for but I cannot find any settings for file verification? Can someone please throw me a bone? where can I enable it?

Many Thanks
Ideas / More overwrite/ignore options on duplicate files
« Last post by soulblade on November 24, 2016, 08:37:58 am »
I've been using Copy Handler for about 10-12 years now.
The one feature that I would like to see the most are overwrite/ignore options

For example, when a duplicate file is being overwritten, ask if I want to overwrite/ignore the destination file with the source file if...
Source is bigger
Source is newer
