    Tera Copy. No need for more.
    It makes it own cache overriding the windows one.

    It seems TeraCopy could be nice but there have been several reports that it often crashes on Windows 7 so I haven't tried it myself yet. I highly recommend using a combination of Diskeeper 2010 and Process Lasso. Diskeeper prevents fragmentation alot before it actually happens, as well as automatically defragments as soon and as fast as it can, without ever slowing the system down. Fragmentation is one of the most important causes of slowdowns during file copy operations. Process Lasso can be used to keep under control the amount of system resources your running processes may assign to themselves. Instead of boosting process priorities above normal, it prevents processes from prioritizing themselves above normal whenever you don't want them to. It can also easily identify running processes that are monopolizing system resources and are thereby making other running processes look like they could take forever to finish their jobs.

    Fast copy works great if you set the parameters correctly to best utilize your various cache sizes but i have had near instantaneous transfers of files over 500mb

    I can see from testing that this is fast, but it has no CRC check?

    I did some testing for database backup with a mix of small and large files, where I logged much faster results with eseutil than any other copy method.

    EDIT: added some documentation

    http://blogs.msdn.com/b/granth/arch...iles-across-a-slow-or-unreliable-network.aspx

    This is how you run it:
    Code:
    ESEUTIL /y "!file_path!" /d "!dest_dir!!file_name!"
    If anyone is interested in a full script with logging send me a PM, I will then translate my batch file to English and post it.
