[8.52a x64] Overall % is missing in move/copy process window

Post by *MaxX » 2016-05-23, 12:28 UTC

To do:
1. Select over 30 GB (or more) files with "R" attribute
2. F6 (to another drive), enter
3. Wait...

While files are being moved to another drive, per-file percentage works fine, but overall percentage shows 0%, then 1%, 2%... and again becomes 0% when next file is processed.
Btw, total % works fine with regular copy operations and move operations without "R" attribute.

Looks like a bug when TC wants to ask me to delete my source files, but does not ask and resets overall operation percentage.

Sorry, this isn't currently supported. TC tries to find out whether an operation goes to a different drive and then does a copy+delete operation by itself. But if this fails, it uses MoveFile, which doesn't provide any feedback.

Is MoveFileEx not used?

Hm, but why can't TC in such case simply add file size after calling MoveFile to total bytes counter?

It seems that this happens only when moving with MoveFile fails, so TC has to resort to copy+delete in an otherwise move-only operation. In this special case, TC has not calculated the total size of all files - instead, the progress shows the percentage of the number of files moved.
