Overall Opinion: Been using CopyWhiz 6 or so months now, I'm at uni with a lot of files in different place, my pc, laptop, hard drive, usb drives. I'll work on some files and add a few in different locations. CopyWhiz is incredible for me to be able to update any files I've changed, I bought it because I saved over new versions of files losing previous work. Thanks so much <3 Definitely much more powerful and not limited to my use of the program, useful for servers etc

Pros: Very easy to use but lots of help on YouTube of needed. Very powerful for organiser/copy/sync/updater

Cons: I would say I would like to pay less $, but my files are safe from loss, definitely worth it.

Does What Windows Doesn't

Overall Opinion: I purchased this item for one primary purpose, to save files from one drive to another (usually external) without duplicating any of the original files. It will only save the files to the back-up drive that are unique or new since the last back-up. This save a lot of time, which I appreciate. Thanks.

Pros: Good value for the money.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Opinion: I use Copywhiz to distribute files to multiple folders. I don't have any other easy way to do this. Many other advanced use cases are supported, which I'm sure I use in the future. Copywhiz is an easy to use and powerful tool.

Pros: Easy to understand and use. Many useful advanced options.

Cons: I would like to use the keyboard hotkeys in the Altap Salamander file explorer.

A Problem Solver For Me

Value For Money

Overall Opinion: I started using Copywhiz when it was primarily a way to move files from one location to another. It was a must-have app for me. I was a newcomer to computers at that time and was unable to move files until I discovered Copywhiz

Pros: Although the new version does more than the previous one, I am still using it to move files. And it is still doing it very well. I am using it quite a bit today because I just did a reinstall of Windows 10 and must put a number of important plugins on Photoshop Elements that were not found by Elements when it did its scan. But all is going well, no pain or stress.

Cons: This is not a con, just an observation that it takes a little more study to make use of the this version because it is more complicated than the previous one. At least that has been the case for me.

Overall Opinion: Guys, this App really worth your investment. It save a lot of time when you are backup external drives or anything else which need incremental with high speed and multi thread CPU. Works like RSYNC but with a good and intelligible GUI interface.

Pros: GUI easy to use.

Perfect for my needs

Overall Opinion: I have been searching for many years to do a backup of my processed image files ONLY. As a photographer I have RAW files and then I have processed jpegs. I want to back these up separately and I want to keep a mirror of my main storage with no compression and no tricky way to recover. Copywhiz did this the first time and now I have scheduled backups of different file types on different media. So simple I wonder why this is not done by other backup software. The price is right and I was happy to pay.

Pros: Simple to use and meets a specific need that I have.

Cons: Nothing. No idea if it is fast or not as it runs in the background.

Overall Opinion: I knew I needed a good incremental backup program, but I dreaded dealing with all the complications I would encounter. Copywhiz is so easy and so far just works like a charm. And it will copy anything, no matter how large or how many sub folders, and it can be used for all copying operations, not just backups. I thoroughly recommend it.

Pros: Very easy and straightforward Many options, such as just backup changed files

Cons: none

Excellent for repeating file-copy-jobs

Overall Opinion: Excellent automatisation of repeating file-copy-jobs. You can save every job in an own file/template for reusing how often you want. There are some genius features like creating subfolders by file-creating-date, file-type or music metadata like album or composer.

Pros: * genius creating of subfolders by different criterias * coping from multiple sources and destinations at once * preview function * straight user interface * include/exclude filters

Cons: * a little bit unregular ui-design with high DPI Monitor

Copying selected files from a folder

Ease of Use

Overall Opinion: CopyWhiz is just what I needed to copy selected files from a specific folder into another folder. It took a long time to software that would do this but CopyWhiz did it in a second. In the era of big data selectively finding hundreds of thousands of files from a folder containing thousands to millions of files is a real time saver.

Pros: The software is easy to use and intuitive, with many useful features.

Cons: There is nothing that I dislike about the software. It would be nice if it could find files across multiple folders with file names with a wildcard component.

Very pleased with CopyWhiz

Overall Opinion: I use two computers -- desktop and laptop -- and I need to keep the documents and photos current. I don't like to upload everything to the cloud then download it again, so, I use CopyWhiz to copy documents and photos to an external 1TB SSD that I swap between computers. What drew me to CopyWhiz was the feature that allows me to copy only changed files. I tell CopyWhiz to copy from the desktop or laptop DOCUMENTS folder the the external drive DOCUMENTS folder but only copy thus that have been changed or created after a certain date. Takes a few seconds every week.

Pros: Able to copy only changed files

Cons: None

Didn't think I needed a copy utility, but I do!
written by Carl on 2021-06-14 17:22:44
Ease of Use

Value For Money

Overall Opinion: I was pretty happy with the Windows copying ability, especially the improved copy in the recent versions of Window. I bought an earlier version of CopyWhiz but didn't use it much. But I gave the latest version a try and it's packed with features that are actually useful to me! The big one is the ability to paste only new or modified files and to remove files from the destination that were removed at the source. This will reduce my reliance on the venerable SyncToy from Microsoft.

Pros: Amazingly powerful--more power than you thought you needed. Lots of flexibility in how copied items are pasted. Ability to "synchronize" folders during a copy. Ability to collect source files from several different folders, and the ability to paste the same items to different destination folders. And the author is very responsive to requests for help.

Cons: Can't really think of any cons yet. Maybe the slight annoyance of remembering to pull up the CopyWhiz GUI each time to make sure it's cleared out?

Best tool for routine back-ups I have found

Ease of Use

Value For Money

Overall Opinion: The interface is easy to understand and use. I think the best feature is the ability to do large multi-file and folder back-ups and only update the changed or new files/folders. It saves so much time. By saving the "project" I can do a daily back-up to external drive in seconds.

Pros: Price, ease of use

Cons: Nothing so far

Very happy with Copywhiz

Overall Opinion: This is great. I wanted something that would copy only new and updated files. I tried to set up my own batch job(s) using DOS COPY and XCOPY but after reviewing some software solutions decided to try this out. I was happy during the trial period and purchased it.

Pros: To make it a little easier to set up a Copywhiz "project" file, I re-did several of my source and target folder structures. That had been on my to do list for a while, so this was a trigger. I like the log files, so that I can glance at them if I'd like and confirm that my updated files have been updated. I use a NAS and have it mapped and backing up from my laptop(s) to NAS has been super easy with Copywhiz. I'm a fan. I'm sure there are other software solutions that are just as good but Copywhiz is the one I decided to try and I'm giving five stars all around.

Cons: Nothing comes to mind.
