Not enough space on compressed folder and more

Javier 4 months ago updated by Aby Skaria 3 months ago 1

Please allow teracopy 3 to Ignore not enough free space, because it is impossible to copy files from a compressed folder to another, example:

1 file of 5000gb (windows compressed to 5gb) it is impossible to copy to any drive with less than 5000gb free space now, even to a compressed folder, windows explorer also doesn't allow it, but teracopy 2 allowed it by pressing "Ignore not enough free space" dialog, which was a great feature, and also teracopy 2 paused the copying and does not abort when disk is full until you remove some files on destination drive and it resumed automatically when more free space is available, this is a worse behavior in teracopy 3 than in teracopy 2.

Also this behavior doesn't allow to begin a copy of 4Tb files to a drive which now has 2Tb free, but you know that in the meantime it will have more free space available, and will allow the copying to complete, and if teracopy is faster copying than you freeing space it will pause and resume automatically when more free space is available, like teracopy 2 does, but with teracopy 3 you can't start now the copying (which will take many hours) because there is not enough free disk space at this time.

Thank you.



May be I can make teracopy to scheduled each file transfer when there is space restrictions that will be validated and spanned within the daily routine dashboard teracopy will develop in future. I hope you will give some comments for my post. https://ideas.codesector.com/communities/1/topics/262-teracopy-anywhere-but-everywhere
