Copying and Verifying Files

  Spock999 14:21 29 Jan 2010

I find myself copying files quite frequently.,None of the standard windows (XP) facilities seem to offer an option of verifying that the copy has been done accurately.

Does anyone know of any reliable freeware, shareware or reasonably priced software that offers copy and verify?

The standard XP back up process has an option to verify that files have been backed up (or copied) to an external medium correctly.

I actually want something equivalent to the old DOS copy which allowed you to specify that when you copied files they would be verified as well.

To be clearer, I have a lot of photos and want tohave a working copy, a security copy (both of which I can access using the normal facilities) as well as my backups.

Thus whenever I take any new photos, I can copy them into a couple of locations for safety. The trouble with backup software is that you lose control and stuff is that bit more distant and less usable.
