  • Conversion speed: When converting a 4GB text file (windows-1252) to UTF-8 and UTF-16, on an Atholon 4600+ CPU with a very old 160GB Hitachi HDS721616PLA380 hard disk built in 2008, the test speed was around 67MB/s (UTF-8) and 39MB/s (UTF-16); On an Intel Core i5-3570 CPU with a 1TB Western Digital WD10EZEX hard disk, the test speed was around 153MB/s (UTF-8) and 70MB/s (UTF-16). The average speed was based on the test of different sizes of files with multiple times using different haredware specifications. Actual speed will depend on your hardware specification.
  • Long path support: The Windows Operating System has the 260 characters limitation for a path. If the total length of the file path exceeds this limitation, most applications will fail to access the file. UTFCast Professional has the ability to access this kind of long path files in a subfolder when runing in recursive mode. The maximum length allowed for the file path is 32,767 characters.
