  • Feature Request: Win7 Progress Bar

    Often times I will use Beyond Compare to copy dev files up to the server. It's a process I do about a million times a day. I wait for the files to be copied to the server and then I hit refresh in the browser to see the affect of my latest changes.

    Currently I have to stay in Beyond Compare until the copy is done and then I can switch to my browser to hit refresh. I wish that I could switch immediately to my browser and then watch the progress of BC's file copy in the Windows 7 task bar icon. I know that it's possible to have many file copy operations going on at once in BC, so I suppose the overall progress would be the task that has the furthest to go.

    BC displays percentage complete in the Window title, which works for other versions of Windows. I'll add task bar progress bars for Windows 7 to our wish list for a future version of BC. Thanks for the suggestion.

      Hi Jeremy,

      There is a checkbox in the "Tools -> Options... -> Folder Views -> Confirmations" dialog called Beep after long file operations.

      I have not yet tried myself, but maybe this helps in your workflow?
