    Can anyone tell me how the 'time remaining' counter while copying files in Windows works?
    That counter goes up and down, especially when the filesize differs greatly. That I can understand, each file has overhead and a lot of small files up the copy time.
    What I'd like to know is what the counter is exactly based on: the last copied files, data transferred in the last, say, 10 seconds, or maybe the last 10 files.
