hi,
i'm new to mac os,
i could'nt find a way to show more information on the copy screen the finder opens while copying files.

in Windows 7, there's an option to see more details on the files/folders being copied

if there's no native way of doing so, can anyone recommend some 3rd party util that does....

thanks,

Open Finder, click on "View" at the top, then select "Show View Options". Check off the boxes (options) you wish and click on the tab at the bottom that says use as defaults.

A good free file manager utility for OS X is "muCommander". I use it all the time.

The above quote from the OP, taken literally, is not addressed by that response. But, taken as a whole, and reading between the lines, I think you nailed it. One more thing: that applies more to List View or Cover Flow than Icon or Column View.

I'm not so sure..... I was thinking that the OP wanted the dialogue box that comes up when copying a file to show more information, though I may be mistaken.

Neither was I sure what he was asking? There's really not much that can be configured or changed for copying. That's why I suggested the additional file info. Maybe he'll post back and let us know.

That's what I thought too. But then, like what other info??

Then there's this:

I don't mean to resurrect an old thread, but I was looking for this feature myself. I know exactly what he means. Other useful information would include:
1. Not just the name of the Destination folder, but the full path of the Volume & Folder it’s copying To and From.
2. The speed of the transfer (Read & Write in MB/s)
3. iStat Menus, a Mac app by Bjango is a 3rd Party Utility that helps with displaying the Disk Activity and many other things.

Seems to me that the speed in MB/sec is about as useful as the "estimated time remaining", which is not very. That estimate is rarely accurate, especially as the number gets smaller. I just upgraded to Snow Leopard, and the last "3 minutes" took at least 10.

Are you saying that iStat menus has items 1 and 2 covered?

You don't need to pay for a third party product to get read/write speeds. Activity Monitor can show that.
