Windows 7: Taskbar icon for backup indicates progress

Taskbar icon for backup indicates progress

While backing up my laptop using Win 7 Backup & Restore, I noticed that the icon in the taskbar has a green "shadow" that progresses across the icon as the backup progresses. I never noticed it before and thought it was a great feature.

Am I the only one that never noticed that before?

Cant speak for others, but I saw it. I do agree it is a nice feature to see how things are progressing.
