Teracopy is good in moving large amounts of data when we were using windows 10, Has anyone used it with Windows 11, Has anyone found issues?
Is there any option in Teracopy to limit the transfer speed?
Any recommendations for alternatives?

I use robocopy with the ChoEazy Gui - much better than Teracopy in my experience.

Teracopy works fine. Have used both Teracopy and Robocopy, and I find that Teracopy works better for me than does Robocopy. YMMV.

TeraCopy has no issues in windows 11 , The problem will be just with the transfer limiter because this option not available in all Teracopy versions .
As a straightforward recommendation , Gs Richcopy360 works just fine in windows 11 and has an excellent option to limit the transfer speed

TeraCopy my default go-to copy/move handler in Win 11. Nary a hiccup.

Question for you all. I just looked up this app. I get what it does but give me an example of when or why I would want to use this?
For me lets say i want to move a 50GB file from one folder to another local on the same drive? it will move it faster? or lets say i want to move that same 50GB file from my C: Drive to my E: Drive..so then this app will move it faster? Sorry never used this before.

Used as the built-in default copy/move handler for every process instead of snail-crawl Windows built-in process. You don't have to "use" it, if set properly it auto kicks in when you copy/move a file.

Close to perfect when used with context menu add-ins

It will move files faster, absolutely. You could install it and try. Just like any other program if you don't like it, uninstall it.
EDIT NOTE Compare like with like hardware - don't compare copy/move a 50MB file from an external USB2 connected HDD, with a 50MB file from a Type C/Lightning connected external SSD (Don't worry, I've seen it done !!)

It also has a better range of (auto) options when you're copying file(s) to location where files already exist - if same name file exists : overwrite, copy and rename (i.e. keep both copies), copy only if older/newer, copy only if larger/smaller etc.

My reco settings :
- click top lh corner icon nr Teracopy = untick Always on top (you don't need it blocking other stuff on your screen, it'll be in the Taskbar anyway when it's running)
- Preferences (the cog wheel in the menu icons) = tick Use Tera as default copy handler

with no shame in trying another tool, I switched from Teracopy to Gs Richcopy360, very easy and full featured
