According to the developer, TeraCopy employs "dynamically adjusted buffers" and other fancy tricks to speed file transfers. It also lets you pause and resume transfers, something Windows can't do. If TeraCopy encounters an error along the way, it'll keep trying to complete the copy rather than instantly aborting the process. If it simply can't finish the job for some reason, you can see a list of which files didn't copy and attempt to re-copy just those files.
In short, it's a smart file-copy utility, and it's a freebie to boot. How can you go wrong? Use this the next time you need to offload a big batch of files to an external drive or even copy files across your network. [via Web Worker Daily]
