The standard Copy/Move File dialog in Windows XP looks something like this:

I don't know about you folks, but I've always hated it. It's not very helpful, the "Cancel" button has never really worked for me, and it doesn't give a good idea of the actual progress of a copy/move procedure. Teracopy replaces it with a much more helpful dialog:

With the "More" option selected:

With the "Less" option selected.

You can skip files, pause the operation and it integrates right into the Windows Shell.

Thanks man! That helps me a lot when I copy music, I can skip some song, or pause the copy process...

Definitely something i'd like to have. I hate not knowing what's going on with my copy processes. Hopefully with this i'll be able to tell what's happening at any given time and how long it should last. Thanx for the tip.

How long is the freeware trial period?
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

As I understand it there is no trial period. It's free for personal use.

I've used it a lot in Vista and it's a pretty good replacement for the slow copying there.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Looks cool. I would like to give it a try. If I would like to change back to the classic file dialog later, I do simply reinstall it and it gets out of my shell??? I would like to install something that stays in my registry forever no matter how hard I try to reinstall it. (There are such programs).

I'm not sure I follow all that. But if you uninstall Teracopy, Windows' default dialog comes back.
