Teracopy – Copy files faster in Windows

Just a few days ago, I had to make backups of a few computers.  I used Acronis True Image to make full images of the machines and needed to take them out of the company to keep them safe.  I thought I would simply copy them to an external USB 2.0 hard drive, but when Continue Reading
