RichCopy is a discontinued file copy utility program developed by Ken Tamaru of Microsoft Corporation. It is multi-threaded, and may thus under some circumstances copy files faster than some other utilities available for the Windows operating system. Additionally, while having some similarities (like multithreaded copying) with the Microsoft utility, Robocopy, it provides a complete graphical user interface (GUI), whereas Robocopy is a command-line utility.[1]

Features[edit]

Criticisms[edit]

Defects[edit]

RichCopy will not copy files that are opened with certain combinations of file sharing attributes. Any process may open files for exclusive read access by withholding the FILE_SHARE_READ[5]
