CNET Review

We tested the program by copying a 1.73GB folder full of images, audio files, and other documents; first we used the Windows copy function, and then we tried it with ExtremeCopy. The built-in Windows function copied the folder in 2 minutes and 58 seconds, while ExtremeCopy managed the same task in 2 minutes and 20 seconds.



In general, just wanted to let you know that ExtremeCopy is doing a great job for us.

Initially we started with 1 copy running at a time and copied 280Gb from 1 server to 4 servers in parallel within 55 min.

Now we’re running 2 copy tasks in parallel (we’re using the 2 network cards the servers have) and time dropped down to 30 min.
