I must have missed that, thanks.

Not really so fascinating. Different copiers have vastly different performance. XY offers no ability to tweak the buffer/chunk/cache options, and whatever options it does use internally are different to what even Windows File Explorer uses by default. Meaning that file copy operations to the flash drive attached to my router take several minutes with XY's Custom Copy but only seconds with File Explorer.

Come on, that's not possible. Maybe you have verification turned on or something else that takes time.

Starting with the arrival of preemptive multi-tasking copying has turned into a plain fire-and-forget background job for me. Wether a rather big job needs 10 mins more or less has never been a concern for me. Hence I was asking.

But why is the command line "hard to use"? Mice are.
No I'm not saying command line is "hard to use". That is something I'm fine with. What I meant by hard to use is that I barely used computers during that time so these types of software that mimics stuff from that time is "hard to use" since it's more unfamiliar. I barely remember what I grew up to use. I remember in Elementary school I was playing with Macs that has 5 inch floppies and green screen CRTs. My actual computer that I learned on however was Windows 3.1. No experiences with DOS.

Awesome! Finally a tweak for custom copy. I will have to try it later when I get home. Thanks!

Hi
I'm new to this "not using the microsoft explorer" thing. From the programs I have used, I like XY the most. The help file is my best friend. :oops:
XY is my main explorer for now, but I have to use FreeCommander to access files on my android phone. Not big deal.

Thanks. Those are very interesting suggestions. (Yes, even XYplorer+wine: even that can outperform the few "top" fms I've tried so far)

Highend (or any other recent XYPlorer user on Linux) are you able to get dragging and dropping of files to work in Linux? I posted about my problem doing so here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=11058&p=141325&hilit=linux#p141325

Gus, have any of you found a suitable alternative on Linux.

SpaceFM seems dead
DoubleCMD is good but not that great.

Didn't like that it either as it doesn't remember last session and heavily dependent on KDE. I forgot to mention I am a Gnome user.
