Own copy function for better performance

#1 Post by RuCla » 07.10.2008, 09:09

Hello everyone,
I use FC for a long time and I really like it. But when I have to copy or move a file from one place to another the speed of this action is really very slow. I know that FC uses the standard windows functions but other file explorer use their own functions. So is it possible to create a more performant way to copy or move with FC?
Best regards
Rudi

This has been mentioned in the past......somewhere :D

at the moment, some people are using an alternative method to handle copy/move functions, like SuperCopier or Teracopy...

there are a few others I think as well, but until this function is built into FC...this is the only way at the moment to bypass the Windows copy functions.

Hopefully this will be implemented in the future, but not sure when this may happen.

KillCopy (it's free too) works GREAT with FC! Though, default skin is ugly, but luckily there are many others to choose from...

To be able to use external programs you must define the following lines in the freecommander.ini

for KillCopy
FileMovePrg=C:\WINDOWS\system32\killcopy.exe |%ActivSelAsFile%|%InactivDir%|-mrg
FileCopyPrg=C:\WINDOWS\system32\killcopy.exe |%ActivSelAsFile%|%InactivDir%

or for TeraCopy
FileMovePrg=C:\Programme\TeraCopy\TeraCopy.exe Move %ActivSelAsFile% %InactivDir%
FileCopyPrg=C:\Programme\TeraCopy\TeraCopy.exe Copy %ActivSelAsFile% %InactivDir%

For TeraCopy you are missing the very important Star "*":

FileMovePrg=C:\Program Files\TeraCopy\TeraCopy.exe Move *%ActivSelAsFile% "%InactivDir%"
FileCopyPrg=C:\Program Files\TeraCopy\TeraCopy.exe Copy *%ActivSelAsFile% "%InactivDir%"

Thanks! Do you also know the correct lines for Ultracopier?

In the meantime more than 3 years have passed since the last posting, but the question stays the same:
How to integrate Ultracopier into FreeCommander?

The integration into Windows does not work. The only way to use it is to explicitly open a file copy/move window from the tray icon, chose source and destination and start copying. But this is very inconvenient.

Config file entries like the the ones below do not work:

Code: Select all

FileCopyPrg=C:\Program Files (x86)\Ultracopier\ultracopier.exe copy %ActivSelAsFile% %InactivDir%

Code: Select all

FileCopyPrg=C:\Program Files (x86)\Ultracopier\ultracopier.exe cp %ActivSelAsFile% %InactivDir%
Windows 7 64bit SP1
FreeCommander 2009.02b
Ultracopier 0.2.0.15

The new FreeCommander XE has its own copy routine.

Does this mean, that Ultracopier cannot be integrated into FreeCommander and that the FreeCommander copy/move routine has to be used instead?

It means that most people don't need to.

Don't need to what? Use the plugin?
Well, actually this does not answer my question because I did not ask if many people want to do that.

What I do wanted to know is if the integration is (easily) possible and if yes, how?

I've just tested version 0.3.0.3 portable and it works (intercepts) with FC XE 581 and FC 2009.02b.418 using Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V commands, on my win7x64sp1 (just like yours ;) ).

The command line syntax should look like this:

Code: Select all

ultracopier cp [folders/files] [destination folder]
ultracopier cp [file] [destination file]
ultracopier mv [folders/files] [destination folder]
ultracopier mv [file] [destination file]
ultracopier Copy [path of copy list in utf16] [destination folder]
ultracopier Move [path of move list in utf16] [destination folder]

It means that most people don't need to use external tools to copy or move files.

FC 2009 used windows copy routine and couldn't do other things while copying large files.
So a lot of people use external tools to separate the copy process.
Now FCXe can separate this by its own copy process.

Have you tried to ask in Ultracopier-Forum for commandline-parameters?
Maybe a"*" like for Teracopy or a "/" is necessary for starting parameters.

even in the new XE version copying big files is a pain, as FC UI becomes pretty sluggish.
Support incl. documentation for third party copy functions (teracopy, nicecopier...) is still very appreciated.

FC XE already supports 3rd party transfer tools, we just need to know their command line options:
