Surely one of the metrics of XP performance monitor could be integrated into the explorer file copy/move progress window thusly:

IDEA: show transfer rate within copy/move dialogue in explorer


in some kind of notation.  I'm not terribly thrilled by the ETA alone.

yes, something like that, but that would integrate into explorer.. or attach itself in some other way.

I asked a similar question a while ago in this thread:
http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=7596.0

I use DOpus.  I love the copy/move dialog.  I tried supercopier, but it didn't make sense, and it confused the system, what with DOpus running also.

Yeah, that's probably it.
But i have one doubt: does it display the copy speed for all copy operations or only when it is from/to a network disk?

Sorry I was also being silly, i just wanted to bring to the attention to Sheer Novelty (great name by the way) that Microsoft has thought along similar lines and added the information to the copy dialogue. Just in case they were not aware. :) Jpgaiva it displays for all copy operations however it's initally hidden until you click on "More Information"
