OSNews, Generic OSes It's time for another "OSNews asks" item. This time, I want to focus on something that I've been wanting to talk about with you all before, but never found the time for. The question is simple: which feature(s) from other operating systems would you like to see in your own main operating system?

Working file copy in Windows, any version

Member since:

Can anyone tell me if they've fixed the horrible file copy mechanism in Windows Explorer in W7?

You know how it can abort a copy in progress over ONE file that can't be read/moved/whatever? Won't continue to work in background and que errors, will cancel the whol operation leaving directories half done, etc, etc.

Affects moving, deleting, copying in batch...

Should have been fixed 15 years ago...
