I like how when I do a copy and paste in windows, teracopy intercedes.

can I get it to do what /M of xcopy does and /A ?

turning off the archive bit at source end.. after a copy. and only copying files whose archive bit is set.

looks like perhaps it can't – barlop Nov 23 '10 at 23:34

It can't and currently has nothing similar to that feature either. But Fastcopy while lacking the shell integration to intercept a copy/paste of files, it does have an option to copy changed files from one location to another. And you can see a listing of files that'd be copied before doing the copy. This "diff" feature is better than the archive bit option of xcopy since it doesn't rely on a bit/the archive bit that'd be changed if you copied to 2 different destinations.
