Windows 7: Show Speed When Moving Files

11 May 2011   #1

Show Speed When Moving Files

I move files around from drive to drive quite a bit and am always curious as to the speed at which Windows is moving them. So I always end up clicking the "More Details" arrow when the "moving" box is up.

Is there a way to turn that on permanently so that I can always see the speed at which files are moving/copying?

This issue has been discussed multiple times on this forum.

Unfortunately, only third party software solutions so far.

I use TeraCopy. It has this and a lot more. You can drag and drop as usual, just select Teracopy or Teramove instead of copy or move.

moving music files: copy/ xfer speed (painful)
answer is probably very simple. Perhaps as simple as, "Just deal with it. There is no way to increase the speed of file xfer" . Here is my setup. I have a wireless NAS (Thecus N0503 - neat little gadj). It has two folders: the first one was created when I directly copied (via usb) my extensive mp3...
