MiniCopier is a graphical copy manager.
It provides more comfort and control over files copy operations, than basic OS functions.
With MiniCopier it is possible to queue different transfers, resume a copy that has failed, limit the speed or pause the copy. If a transfer fails, an error is logged and the rest of the queue is treated.
MiniCopier tries to include most of the features of SuperCopier (Windows-only software) into a completely
It is written in Java, and is fully operational on Linux, Windows and MacOS X systems.
This software is published under the GNU GPL.

The installation with Windows should be straightforward.
If you use the archive version, there is no need of installation, however you will need the Java Virtual Machine
(Java Runtime Environment 5.0 minimum).
For example, with Ubuntu :
sudo apt-get install sun-java5-jre
You can launch MiniCopier with the sh script included in the archive.
It is also possible, depending on your distribution, to right-click on the MiniCopier.jar file, and
"Open with Sun Java 5.0 Runtime".
Drag and drop files or folders you wish to copy on the basket icon. You can do this several times,
send multiple files simultaneously... When you want to paste the basket content, just drag and drop
a destination folder on the icon on the right.
While queue is being processed, you can, at any time, pause the copy, skip current transfer to
proceed to the next one, or manage queue composition.
