Windows 7: File Transfer Network transmission completes time remaining is 14min

Windows 7 64bit
File Transfer Network transmission completes time remaining is 14min

Hi Folks,

I have been doing to transfer testing between a test computer (WIN 7) and a Win 2007r2 box.

I am transferring 300Mb single zipped file which is taking 30 minutes (slow I know hence the reason for testing)

One behavior I have noticed which I cannot explain while watching the network interfaces utilization graph (Task manager) is that at about 16 minutes into the transfer the transmission over the network stops but it takes another 14 minutes to complete 'the transfer'. by which I mean the transfer window remains on the screen and the count down timer continues to count down the remaining 14 minutes.

I'm just curious of this behavior as I have not seen this before. can anyone explain what is going on here? I have done the same test on multiple Win7 computers and win2007 boxes and it's always the same.

Very often the problem can be anti virus as it will scan on read and write on the other PC. Robocopy tends not to get scanned as it's cmd line it's was written for servers give it a try

Battery Life Time Remaining
I have a HP Pavilion laptop and when I hover over the battery icon it tells me the percentage of battery left but I was wondering if their was a way to get it to show me how much time I have left? I have seen other pc's with Windows 7 have this and I was wondering if mine can do this also. Thanks

File Transfer Dialogue: Exact Time
Hello, I've noticed since my upgrade to Windows 7 that when a file transfer dialogue is going, I'll see the dilaogue populate "Time Remaining: About 45 minutes" for example. Is there a way to get windows to display the exact calculated time, rather than "about x minutes"?
