Windows 7: copy question

14 May 2011   #1

windows 7 home 32 bit x2 and 64 bit and xp home x2
copy question

when i copy several files i like to see what is happening. not a bar that shows percentage, but text that reads copying file x to ??, when its done then on to next file. i like knowing where i'm at and if it bricks where and why.

Other than switching to cmd prompt, is there a way to turn that on? i dont really feel up to navigation in dos to network locations and so forth and dealing with password in dos. just not worth the stress. any ideas? i use several pc's windows 7 and xp are the OS's.

You can try installing TeraCopy, it gives you a lot more options and claims to be faster at copying files. I think it also gives youa file by file list of files it's copying, although if it's copying small files it may go by too quickly to notice.
