Copying Takes Very Long Before Actually Starting to Copy

    when copying large files it takes a considerably long time for Vista to
    calculate the actual time to copy before actually starting copying.

    Isn't it possible to switch off this thinking-period?

  2. I think SP1 fixes this issue.

    Hello "Axel Dahmen":
    I was concerned about that also since I move a lot of large video files
    around. The pop-up window would say calculating time remaining forever.
    However, when I click the arrrow down in that window it shows almost
    immediately that the file is being transferred at a rate of 60-70 MBs a
    second and seems to complete all the transfers about as fast as XP did. Have
    you clicked the down arrow in the pop-up file transfer window to see if there
    is actually a delay in the file transfer process or just a failure to show
    time remaining? tucson

    SP1 improves it, but not quite fixes it, IIRC.
