If you want to write over a file, it cannot be in use. Not something new, is it? Smile | :)

Sounds like it wasn't updating the UI for a bit.

Or has Corel employed the guy who wrote the original Windows "File Copy" progress indicator? Laugh | :laugh:
If you can calculate the average time it takes to move a MB, you can calculate the estimated time for the entire operation. If the blocks you move are of different sizes, then the speed will differ during the operation, meaning the average changes. I like that dialog; it does not say it will be done at that exact time, it just tries to update its best guess regularly.

So, when I show a progressbar, I include the estimated time remaining. You write the functionality once and embed if in the progressbar.
