PA 2012 doesn't like TeraCopy

  • I have been using TeraCopy ( for a while now, because the built in Windows one just sucks for copying and moving files in general.
    I noticed an issue, when I try to extract an archive by dragging from PA to an explorer window, PA will extract to temp directory first, then I get an option from TC, to copy with teracopy or with windows. If I click on Teracopy, I get an error stating, for example:

    Open Error: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

    If I click on Copy with Explorer then it works just fine.

    I’m guessing the double backslash has something to do with that? My current Temp directory is set to “D:\PATemp”.
    Is this an issue with TeraCopy or PA?

    Well our d&d is built in mind for explorer, so TerraCopy should mirror whatever Explorer does, but we will check it out and see if we can fix it from our side as PA 2013 is coming to beta very soon.
