Average speed indicator

I have just used UltraCopier for the first time after some rather frustrating experiences with a handful of other copy utilities.
Great feature list aside, UltraCopier has proven to be rock solid, which, to my mind, is by far the most important aspect of a copier.

I would love to see an "Elapsed Time", as well as an "Average Speed" indicator.
I understand that the copy process can be paused/interrupted, thus throwing off the speed/time calculations. Perhaps the time/speed can be either session-specific, or periodically stored in the event of an interruption?

Thanks!

Already done, just put never close the windows at the end of transfer.

I think "Elapsed Time" might be useful to have on-screen at all times, not just at the end of transfer. This way, the user wouldn't have to wait for the transfer to complete to find out how long the copy's taken thus far (and, perhaps, do a quick mental average speed calculation ;) ).

Already talked with the user. It make the interface more dirty and less clear. Is not common features requested by the most of the user.

It's better to work on the time remaining calculation...

I (and many others I suppose) think the same, it is useful for exacter time calculating if a transfer is too slow to determine if it is worth to cancel it or or continue it for example on a faster drive/stick, as the remaining time display is not very accurate, indeed better than the windows internal one but still. A display only at the end (if the window is not automatically closed) is not very helpful, only interesting for statistics. So would be nice if you would implement it. :ugeek:
