Time remaining calculation on file copy never updates RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I'm copying 181 GB from one drive to another.  The copy dialog says it have 176 GB left and is copying at 6.13 MB/sec.  It also says it has 50 sec left.  Hmmm.  Should be over 8 hours.  Of course, it's been saying 50 sec left for the last 15 minutes.

     

    Where does one report a bug like this?

     

    I running Vista Pro, SP1.

    This has been an ongoing issue since Vista went RTM.

     

    There is a very long thread here that covers just about all of the different issues. It has a lot of information and some fixes.
