Softpedia Editor's Review for Fast Copy Paste
A program to copy files / folders fast and simple.
Written by Bogdan Popa on March 27th, 2012
Fast Copy Paste is a lightweight Windows tool designed to help you copy files or folders to a user defined location with just a few clicks.
Although you may expect something really innovative, it's not, and Fast Copy Paste is actually a separate interface for the same Windows copying tool we're all using.
The only difference is that Fast Copy Paste only asks you to pick the source, which can be either a file or a folder, and the destination, so you don't need to browse the computer to select the data to be copied.
The interface is minimal and besides the fact that it shows the current time, it also allows you to pick the type of content you wish to copy. Obviously, pick the file or folder and configure the destination and you're ready to go.
Unfortunately, once you start the process Fast Copy Paste displays the same Windows file copying dialog, so you don't get more information beside the one that's already available to all users of Microsoft's operating system.
You can't really claim that Fast Copy Paste is faster than the tool bundled into Windows since it relies on the same utility, but at least it makes the whole task of copying files a few clicks job.
Fast Copy Paste works flawlessly on all Windows versions and doesn't require administrator privileges, running on low resources and without affecting system performance at all.
Overall, the program does what it says and although you may expect more advanced features, it's just a basic tool with minimal options and a basic interface.
