Copy Process not showing ETA?

I am copying 1.73TB between two external hard drives. It was showing at the beginning an ETA of 22 hours, and has stopped showing any ETA for awhile... is there a way to get it to tell me again?
Also if you think pressing "More Details" might get it to show up, it wont.

Explorer is never that happy when the number of files is in the thousands. Try RichCopy instead.

I use Teracopy and when I install, have it replace the built in Copy and Move commands. Fatster and give more info.

The beauty of RichCopy for handling lots of files/folders is that it is multi-threaded. Instead of counting files it starts copying from the jump.

Explorer has its quirks. So much software expects them that they will never really fix it. It's been around in 32 bit form since Win95? Two decades and still no fix. It's unrealistic to expect 'em to fix it now.
