I like and have been using TeraCopy, a third party program, for many years. Mostly it is a great program, but it does have some issues. On Windows XP for instance, Thumbs.db files could often hold up a copy or move process until the user manually responded to the error prompt. Some other issues I discuss below.
PLEASE NOTE - I am not related to or affiliated in any way with the 3rd party TeraCopy program developers.
ALSO NOTE - I myself have only tested TeraCopy Cure at this point, on Windows 7 (32 bit), and only with the free version of TeraCopy 2.27.
This program, TeraCopy Cure, is related to another one of my TeraCopy assistant programs, TeraCopy Timer, but aims at being simpler and quicker to use ... if lacking its more advanced features.
TeraCopy Cure is a frontend for TeraCopy and sets out to make up for its flaws and limitations.
One of those flaws is queuing order, and the limitation relates to a same destination issue.
You would think that queue order would be the same as add order, but that is not the case, and if you are doing a mix of COPY and MOVE then the COPY process could easily fail. It could fail with some source items, even if the COPY process has already started before the same source MOVE process begins ... especially if the destination folder is on the source drive ... only the currently copying file is locked to that process.
If you drag and drop another source for a same destination as an existing or impending COPY or MOVE process, then usually TeraCopy nicely adds it for you to that existing job. However, you might wish to avoid that, or it might occur during the testing phase of that active process, and then not be properly processed etc. But you are not given a choice and it just gets added.
HOW TO USE
See the right-click menu of the 'Batch List' (lowest field) and the right-click menu of the Tree field, for some useful options.
(1) If desired, enable 'Auto Start'. NOTE - Even if enabled, this can be bypassed.
(2) Set the destination folder, either by browsing on the tree or by dragging a folder to the Destination input field or label. Right-clicking on a folder in Explorer will also work, if enabled. The destination folder path will also show in the Tree if that right-click option is enabled.
(3) Then drag & drop source file or folder onto one of three five areas - Folder (Drive) Tree field, or COPY or MOVE buttons ... this now also includes the source input and label.
NOTE - If the Folder (Drive) Tree field is used, then you will additionally need to click either the COPY or MOVE button, to have that job added to the Batch List ... but this avoids 'Auto Start' if it is enabled. Drag & dropping to the buttons instead, saves on clicking, but starts the first job etc immediately if 'Auto Start' is enabled.
(4) If needed and ready, click the START button to run the first job and those that follow.
More information is included in program and in the NOTES etc sections below.
WARNING - Depending on the amount of content on your destination drive, and folder level depth, and the speed of your PC, display of the full path in the Folder (Drive) Tree can take a while to show ... if you have that (right-click) option enabled ... it isn't by default. I found this feature quite tricky to get right, and I'm still not 100% sure it is now full-proof.

Our Microsoft Office Templates shared folder was changed from a DFS share to an Isilon share. example:
Old Server: \\Domain.com\Office\Templates
New Server: \\Templates.domain.com\Office\Templates
The team making the changes overlooked that several hundred thousand documents, had been attached to the old template documents. So when you open a document which has been attached, it will take a couple of minutes to open, while it tries to locate the old server path. I've been asked to come in and fix it, so after several hours found that the data is being held in document.zip\word\_rels\settings.xml.rels, I now need to replace the old server path with the new server path. I didn't want to use dom as that would take too long and found a tool wtc https://github.com/NeosIT/wtc which works perfectly, takes about 8 minutes to scan a single directory with 4000 documents and fix them. The problem is the documents are all held on sharepoint and they want to retain the file timestamp, which is easy enough, but they also don't want to keep the "Modified By" apparently they don't like seeing all the documents appearing as "Modified by: Subz" Anyone know of way to retain the "Modified By" info,
I hope you can help me with this need. In the company I work for, every time we need to deploy a change into a Production environment, we need to add a SharePoint entry in a Calendar area. This is in order to notify Operations team that a change will be introduced on a specific date.
The fields we need to fill out are:
ows_Project ows_ChangeReq ows_Description ows_StartDate ows_EndDate The thing is that, I have all these values available in an AutoIT application I built called EAI Tool so, what I need is: Whenever a user click a button, a SharePoint record should be created populating SharePoint fields with the values from EAI Tool applicacion.
If you need additional information, let me know.
