  • What is that long running copy/move ?

    BC3 has definitely changed the way I work (for the better).

    The async transfer threads have really helped, and I've discovered I can transfer multiple large files quickly across a network if I run them as separate threads, which overlaps the network lag time.

    So now I have a large number of files moving, and I frequently have to ask myself:

    - Have I already requested this file to be copied (is it running somewhere)?
    - That file is taking a long time ... which directory is it copying from?

    Many of the files I transfer have the same name (e.g., "setup.exe" in multiple language directories).

    What I would like to see is "Mouse Hover" on a transfer bar that would display more detail on the From/To directories.

    Aside: While transfers are progressing, why do I get "transfer cancel" warnings if I try to adjust the base folder?

    I would have thought that the transfer threads had enough information to continue, irrespective of the left/right base folder positions.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I've added them to our wishlist entry on the subject. I quite like the hover idea.
