An interesting observation made my a colleague of mine.  Having used Windows 7 now for what seems like ages’  its the some things that you start to take for granted.  So just to point out If you pin Explorer to the taskbar and start a copy, the explorer icon acts as a progress bar for the copy?  So you can go to other apps and at a glance see how far your copy has to go just by looking at the icon ... handy..
