Copywhiz (formerly Piky Basket)
Copywhiz is a straightforward piece of software built specifically for helping you copy or move multiple files stored on your computer to a specified directory.
It offers support for context menu integration, so you can easily select the files and folders to process.
The tool gives you the possibility to add items and directories to the queue using right-click operations. Plus, it lets you upload files into the working environment using “drag and drop” operations or the built-in browse function.
What’s more, you can make the utility move or paste items, or paste data as a compressed file (ZIP file format), create exclusion lists, and apply several filters related to creation date, last modified or accessed items, size, as well as keywords or extensions.
Other notable characteristics worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to specify the destination folder, set up file naming rules, clear the entire list with just one click, and open the location where the item is stored.
Last but not least, you are allowed to paste all files to a single folder without creating subfolders, make the utility remain on top of other apps, and view a list with recently accessed folders.
During our testing we have noticed that Copywhiz carries out a task very quickly, and no errors showed up throughout the entire process. However, it eats up CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer may be affected.
To sum things up, Copywhiz offers a handy set of features for helping users copy or move files from one location to another effortlessly. Thanks to its intuitive interface and advanced filtering system, it is suitable for all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
