ExtremeCopy is a utility that helps you to copy/move files at a lightning speed. It optimizes the speed based on your machine’s capability.
ExtremeCopy Pro is designed to copy/move files significantly faster than Windows’s normal copy function. For any copy tasks that take a long time to complete you can pause and then resume later. Additionally, if an error occurs while copying files, the same will be recorded in a log – but the copy process continues normally.

There are 2 installation packages available, one for 32 and 64-bit Operating systems. It has two modes of installation – Complete and Custom installation. However there is no difference between them because in Custom mode there is nothing to configure apart from the installation directory. The installation procedure will start right after that step.
It has a simple interface, with just two options to choose: source and destination file/folder, but it can be expanded further to show additional options by clicking the “More” button. The More options that appear let you configure how the program should react on certain cases, like when errors occur or when a copied file has the same filename with a file on the destination folder. You can also select if you want to verify copy data or even run a command after the copy has finished.
