Does Windows 8 64-bit copy files safely in the explorer (safe = write + verify the write) between folders? If not, is there a built-in or 3rd party tool that can? I want to leave no doubt that the files were transferred successfully before I delete the originals.

The copy command includes a switch (/v) that verifies, so if you use the command-prompt, you can use that. To be extra safe, you could use a simple batch file: copy /v %1 %2 %3 %4   &   fc /b %1 %2. Of course drive caches might cause inaccurate results… – Synetech Nov 4 '13 at 6:33

It looks like TaraCopy does what I'm asking for: verifying files (using a CRC check) after they've been copied.
