Make TeraCopy work with Phones/Cameras

Since upgrading to Windows 10 TeraCopy can no longer see iPhones; I assume the same will be true for Androids and digital cameras that no longer get a drive letter assigned.


This is really annoying since this is typically the biggest copy operation I do.

Requires implementation of MTP (Media Transfer Protocol). You're basically asking us to re-create another $40 software product for free. We've just tested MTP Drive and it works fine with TeraCopy.

It's out of scope, did you try MTP Drive or similar software?

I don't think you have to re-create the whole $40 software product that creates drives for other programs. Just maybe the same pieces of MTP that the free SafeCopyFree does? It can copy from MTP sources. Unfortunately it only copies whole folders at a time and not single files.

Love TC, but hHow is this out of scope?  Its copying files in Windows.  We're basically asking that you offer a complete modern solution.  Nowhere on

http://codesector.com/teracopy do you say 'excluding storage accessible only by MTP' or anything to that effect.

In todays mobile ridden world thats a pretty crucial distinction, not something to hide away in a FAQ or support article.

Also, you don't even mention this in your FAQ!

This is a huge missing feature. The copy tools available right now for PTP/MTP are awful. It's definitely more work, but it's still in scope from the user's perspective. Is this coming in the new version at least?

In this mobile-first world, it might make sense to add error-checking around MTP, to recommend that users use an appropriate product.

What about implementing it but making it a pro feature only?

I tried MPT Drive, and it costs more than Teracopy, plus its interface is awful (now that we are talking about interfaces, maybe a face lift for teracopy? )

Thanks

As a Pro user, I'd _happily_ even pay another 5 or 10 bucks if this would be implemented.

Done as a plugin, future monetization (of the Pro version) would be possible and honor the development costs such a feature caused.

Please note that I have tried even with 'TeraCopy 3.5 beta 2' in which I selected source files from my mobile. Files got added to list but copying gave same error for all files namely 'Error opening source file: the system cannot find the file specified . code 2' .


Thanks.
