1.0 Final Release Released June 18, 2000


"...the copy time of a 216MB file... [went] from 97 seconds to 40 seconds! Definately a nice job, this is the kind of software I like to see - make the OS faster :) In fact, this is really the only product I have ever seen that speeds up any aspect of the system (or delivers on the claim)." - Andrew G.

What is CopyFaster?

Are you getting the best performance out of your system? Let CopyFaster bring out the best in your hard drive!

CopyFaster is a software utility that enables Windows 2000 Explorer to copy big files faster when copying to and from the same hard drive. CopyFaster was available as a $9.99 shareware program, but is no longer available for registration.

How does CopyFaster work?

CopyFaster is faster because:

  • Less seeking - CopyFaster's finer control over the copying process causes less time-consuming movement of the hard disk head. CopyFaster will try to read from the same section of the hard disk (where the head is positioned) multiple times before causing the head to move to another position (which is time consuming).

  • Uncached file access - CopyFaster bypasses Windows 2000's file cache which normally speeds up repeated access to the same file, but is less useful for big files. Bypassing the file cache prevents extra wasted memory-to-memory copying from occurring.

How do I use CopyFaster?
  1. Get Windows 2000 - CopyFaster only works with Microsoft Windows 2000. CopyFaster does not work with Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8.

  2. Download - Get the latest version from our web site.

  3. Install/Upgrade - Unzip the downloaded Zip file and run the COPYFAST.MSI file to install CopyFaster onto your system.

  4. Try it - Make sure CopyFaster is running and enabled (you will notice a lightning bolt near your clock in the taskbar). Copy big files in Windows Explorer by using the Edit menu or drag and drop as you would normally and notice the time saved! When CopyFaster is copying a big file, the lightning bolt will flash.

  5. Purchase - Try CopyFaster for 30 days and if you like it, pay $9.99 to register and pay for it.
