# how to increase copying speed ?

Is there any method or software to increase copying speed in fedora ? I used teracopy in windows excepting a similar type of software in fedora.

Do you often copy the same files around? Or why do you copy those files around?

When doing a backup of your data, rsync is usually your friend, so you could try grsync...

What teracopy is and how it works ? Also, why teracopy doesn't have a version for Linux ?

From the teracopy site we read

One of the most common complaints about newer versions of Windows is the slow copying speed, especially when transferring lots of files over the network. If you want to speed up your copying or if you regularly transfer large amounts of data and have to stop the process to perform some other disk-intensive task, this program may be just what you need.

How it works ?

• Copy files faster

TeraCopy uses dynamically adjusted buffers to reduce the seek times. Asynchronous copying speeds up the file transfer between two physical hard drives.

• Pause and resume file transfer activities Pause the copy process at

any time in order to free up system resources and continue with a single click.

• Error recovery In case of a copy error

TeraCopy will try several times to recover and, in the worse case scenario, will simply skip the file, not terminating the entire transfer.

Why doesn't have a version for Linux ?

My personal opinion and answer is

because it is not needed. Linux doesn't suffer from the same diseases as Windows OS does. The copy procedure can be handled by the kernel and lot of other stuff (kernel staff basically). As suggested in a comment above, if you want a graphical tool that can do most of what teracopy does, use grsync

grsync package in Fedora

all we want is speed when copying files...i used some third party softweres for copying large files and almost it works great...currently i used gs rich copy which is equally usefull to compare with others..but as i say all we want is speed, so gs gives me better speed then others..it is my opinion may be others are also good.

The linux OS, I guess does not need some kind of software like that because its not the same as in windows. I used rsync on ubuntu and it worked fine. You can also try it. On windows I use GS Richcopy 360, its 100% multi threaded file transfer makes the transfer rate lightning fast. You should give it a try when using windows. Thanks!
