When it comes with dealing with file copy & move operations in Ubuntu Linux the built in tool (Nautilus file manager) does a decent job. And in Ubuntu even if it couldn’t copy the full content of a file, it’ll still save the partially copied content where Windows would simply delete it.But if you usually deal with a lot of mass file copying & moving operations then having a dedicated utility does makes sense as it lets you somewhat automate the task (by letting you add files to a queue for instance) and comes with additional features.So if you’re looking for a free an open source utility that you can use in Ubuntu then try ‘UltraCopier’. It also supports Windows and Mac OS X too.Although it wasn’t like stunningly fast but did a better job than than the built in tool (for the record: the speed reading in the screenshot is small but this is because it changes quite quickly and updates few times within a second. In simple terms, the average speeds are way higher than shown in the image …)Main features …*. I don’t know how it’s under other OS platforms, but in Ubuntu it won’t however replace your file copy manager. So whenever you want to copy or move a file, you’ll have to manually add them into UltraCopier.*. You can add or remove files & folders to its queue for easily dealing with mass file operations.*. Runs in the system notification area for easy access.*. If it encounters errors while copying then the partially copied file will be saved.*. Pause/Resume or Skip.*. Limit copy speed.*. Shows basic states of the file (percentage, progress bar, file name, speed, time left etc).*. Lets you change priority level and the ‘block size’.*. Pre-allocate file sizes.*. Enable/Disable keeping certain
such as “dates”.*. Few built in themes.*. Tries to read few times before giving up if a read error occurs.*. Close to the system tray (can be disabled of course).. these are some of its main features to mention.You can do a bit of a tweaking using the options window …You can install UltraCopier in Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot, 11.04 Natty Narwhal, 10.10 and 10.04 by using the below command in your Terminal window.sudo apt-get install ultracopierFor other OS users, please get it from . It has a separate zipped version (only for Windows) so you can use it as a portable app too. Good luck.Related Posts

It’s because nautilus not support it. And wait the version 0.3 ;), I’m working hard on it, it will be fantastic. I need betatester for it. I need to copy the whole external drive to another external and I don’t want to select it file by file.
It takes too long.
Can I select all the folders on the drive at once somehow? Can I use Ultracopier as my default copier?.I am not interested in moving/copying files within the application.The default copier in ubuntu is slow and without much features. hey dude, can you tell me if the
version 0.3 is available for ubuntu 12
? if so, how can i install it It’s seems like Teracopy, but it can’t copy from network share folder. The source say “/home/administrator/” not the actual one. I’m using Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit.Btw, It’s a nice app… Thx. ultracopier is no longer in the ubuntu software repositories, is there an alternative package repository being used Why do you have to go through the hustle of having to do all of that? If it is not available in the ubuntu repository, then there is really nothing to do but to search for an alternative. And a great alternative would be GS RichCopy 360. A lot of people are now discovering this amazing tool and if you are not one of them then I suggest you start checking it out and start
comparing the difference. Nautilus does a decent job you say. Well I have to call bullshit on that! It may be better than the Windows file manager, but that still does not make it any damn good! It’s like saying getting punched in the face is better than being kicked in the testicles. Sure it probably won’t hurt as much, but it’ll still hurts and is still something that one would be wise to avoid. In Linux Mint 18. I see it under Software MAnager with the name UltraCopier I have installed ultracopier with command
sudo apt-get install ultracopier. But I am still unable to use it. When I try to open this it shows following message: “Ultracopier seam have crashed, do you want save the previous report for report it to the forum?” What I should do? This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. .Recent Posts
