    Pls suggest App to copy/move files


    Dear All,

    Please suggest me a good software to replace the default copy and move system of Win 8.

    Thanks,
    Troy.

    You might try GoodSync, I use it for syncing data between workstations and notebooks, It works in sync mode or back up mode

    thanks for your response...but I am not looking for a syncing or backup s/w. I need something which can copy files faster than default copy and move system of Win 8...something like Teracopy.

    Edit: My bad, just noticed you were asking for an "app". Do you mean a metro app ? I doubt those exist and/or are efficient. You should stick to desktop applications for such since they involve fairly low level operations.
