  • time calculating

    how does windows calculate the time (that is displaying) wile it is transfering files during copy/paste i guess that there is some formula that calculate how busy the cpu + ram and relate it to the weight of the file

    AFAIK copy/move times are based on absolutely no formula in this universe. I have seen them jump, fall, jump to effectively infinity etc.

    I assume its supposed to be file size (bytes) divided by network transfer rate (bytes per minute or second) but I would place no reliance whatsoever on it!
