Customer Reviews

This product (Copywhiz) is absolutely indispensable - PERIOD!!! The product makes mass file corrections, group copying, and a host of other copy-related actions so easy as to almost defy description.

- Frank Bass

Very nice, handy, little program. I like everything about the program. There seems to be no limit on how much material you can put into the basket and since I work with large numbers of files, it's great for me. Also love piky folders.

- CNet User

Great tool that saves a ton of time. I do a lot of moving around on my computer with 5-7 drives attached to it. This tool makes it easy to navigate without having to remember where my information is. I definitely recommend this tool.

- rtshea

I’ve always wondered why there isn’t a better way to copy and paste files. Thanks for the tip off

- Leicester

First, thank you for such an outstanding utility! I use it constantly, and it works flawlessly!

- Jeff Owen

I love this program and cannot see it needing extra features. I've recently purchased a mp3 player and, of course, Piky becomes invaluble again. It's purrfect. You should be making a buck from this ... its sure worth it

- Bill

This add on adds life to the copy paste function. I wonder why Microsoft don't provide this. I always had problem while copying best photos of my baby from different folders to one common folder. Now not any more..... Many thanks to the creative developers

- GotFocus

I usually forget Piky Basket is even installed, until I want it... and it's right there waiting for me with a simple right-click! It is my opinion that this is an app that no Windows computer should be without!

Features & Screenshots

Copy only new or modified files

Many times we wish to share/upload only recently modified files, or backup only changed files to another drive or pick latest music files from multiple folders.

Copywhiz lets you do all of these with just few clicks right from File Explorer (Windows Explorer).

Copywhiz works from other popular file managers also such as Total Commander, xplorer2, Directory Opus, RecentX, XYPlorer & ExplorerXP.

Copy only specific type of files or folders

When copying bunch of files, you may want to exclude some folders containing unnecessary files. Or you may want to copy only certain type of files.

Example: Only pictures and not videos, only source code files and not object files, all documents except .pdf and so on.

Review files before copying them

If you are copying files depending on date, type or size, it is essential to know which files will be copied before actually copying them.

Copywhiz lets you preview the files to be copied. This ensures accuracy.

You can also use this feature to view the list of new & modified files in a folder.

Pick & copy files from multiple folders

Copywhiz lets you pick files from different folders and paste them all at once. This saves a lot if time & effort.

This is useful when organizing music files, sharing files that belong to different folders, copying files from different locations to USB flash drive etc.

Windows only allows you to copy, paste, copy, paste, copy paste & so on. But with Copywhiz, you can copy, copy, copy and paste all together.

Copy just the files without their folders

With Copywhiz, you can copy only the files without creating any folders/sub-folders.

You may have files (pictures, music etc) within multiple sub-folders that you want to pick and copy them all in to a single folder.

Pick & compress files from multiple folders

Copywhiz comes very handy when you wish to compress files from different folders to a single .zip file.

It lets you pick files from different folders and compress them all in a .zip file with least effort.

This way you can easily share/upload a single .zip file containing files from multiple folders. Like picking up best pictures, music or videos from a your library.

Retry or skip files on error

When copying files, Copywhiz does not stop abruptly on error. Instead it lets you retry or skip a file.

For example: If a file is locked (file-in-use), Copywhiz will wait until you unlock the file. In fact, Copywhiz will show you which program is using the file so that you can close the program in order to continue with the file copy.

Also, if the disk is full, Copywhiz will show how much space you need to free in order to complete successfully.

Replace files only if newer or different

With Copywhiz you can skip identical files and overwrite only if the destination file is older than the source file.

This way you don't have to copy the same files again. Save a lot of time when copying large files.

Copy locked files, replace files on reboot

If a file is in use (locked), Copywhiz shows the list of programs using this file so that you can close those programs in order to continue.

Also, you can choose to replace the locked file when you restart your computer next.

These are some special features you would really appreciate.

Auto-rename files with duplicate names

When copying files, you may encounter another file with the same name but different content. Often happens with music & picture files.

You may not want to replace the existing file with the new one but keep both the files.

Copywhiz lets you automatically rename existing file before copying the new file so that you can keep both the files.

Copy files to multiple folders or computers

With a single click, Copywhiz lets you copy files to multiple computers or folders.

You can use some standard date variables such as %year%, %month%, %day% as part of destination directories so that each time the files are copied to a new directory.

Select once copy many times

If you often copy the same set of files to one or more folders, just select the files once and save the list in Copywhiz.

You can later open the saved list and directly run it.

This feature can be used to backup files, synchronize files between two computers, run programs with different data files, test a program with different versions of a file etc.

Schedule your file copy for backups

Files selected in Copywhiz can be saved to a project file.

Once saved, you can use Copywhiz command line parameters to run the project file from a batch file or a script file.
