Can Snow Leopard tell you how fast you are copying files?

    On Windows 7, it tells you how many megabytes per second is being copied when transferring files.

    Can Snow Leopard tell you the same thing? If so, how do you set that option?

    Activity Monitor (Applications/Utilities), then click "Disk Activity". It will graph data read/written in bytes/sec.

    I think OP means in the transfer dialog, to be able to see it when the files are being moved.

    That's just my interpretation.

    Yeah, what they're describing (using Activity Monitor) is also done in Windows Activity Monitor. It's not the same as what the OP wants.

    Thanks for the help. It's true that what I meant is the transfer dialog. Sorry I wasn't more clear before but I myself don't have Win 7 but I like how it shows the megabyte per second when transferring.

    Can Snow Leopard also show that?

    If not, is there some kind of copy software that can show that?
