Windows 7: Transfer File Window: No Timer?

Transfer File Window: No Timer?

Hey guys,
I have windows 7 for 2 days now and i love it. Though i have 2 HDD. I am transferring 18GB to my other drive but it only says (example) "Moving from Drive D to Drive C, Moving 3000 Items 18GB"
There is no "estimated" timer. Why is this so? Or is there an option to have the timer?

This is the 18gb file, i also tried it with a 9gb file. No luck with the "more" tab.

It only shows for like small files like 10mb or 100mb files.

that's strange...or maybe it's linked with number of files, rather than size? lets find a lot of files to move...hmm

by the way, you can easily upload attachments by using the paperclip icon whilst making a post.

You get that when it hasn't yet fully gotten to read the file tree and pull down the size. I've seen it happen when there is a lot of I/O conflicts or heavy fragmentation.

File transfer window, keep expanded by default?
For the Windows 7 file transfer window , is there a way to keep it always expanded by default? I prefer it expanded to show transfer speed. Currently, I have to manually expand it everytime--which is inconvenient.
