Hello!

First, I want to thank Christian Ghisler for his great work to maintain and develop Total Commander for all these years.

I've been using TC since v4.51 and I'm very excited by the new 8.50 beta version. I tried almost all the new features yesterday and noticed very useful one - verify after copy.

Is it possible to let users choose "Verify after copy" in the copy dialog (by F5) every time, alongside with other presented checkboxes?
It would be helpful not just for me, but for the most of TC users, I think.

As for me, half the time I use TC on write-locked USB-stick , so I haven't a possibility to change the option at the Configuration window every time I need it due to locked wincmd.ini file.

P.S. Sorry for my bad English.

It's not just write-locked ini, it's simply too impractical to always go to configuration dialog for option that I might need to change often. Why change it? Simple answer: network.
I don't mind my local copying taking more time, disks are fast enough and feeling safe is probably worth it (anyone feel free to disagree :). Copying from network drive is fine too, because data is transfered only once. But when copying to network drive, it's not good. It may be usable for fast LAN, but when copying to network drive over slow VPN, I definitely do not want everything transferered back again. :)
Also an "emergency off switch" in progress dialog could be nice, in case I copy many files to slow remote drive and forget to turn verify off, so I could easily tell "oops, I don't really want verify now" to TC without having to start over. But maybe this is not necessary and I'll learn to remember it after few mistakes.

I'm not sure yet where I should put it, though - it would be too impractical to put it under the "Options" button, but having an entire line for it is also a bit overkill...

May be here?
It's the only logical place to use and to see such a thing.

That's what I meant - an extra line just for verifying, is this really worth it?

Or this (more complicated to understand, but saves the place):

http://iceimg.com/i/c9/29/410c09f705.png
http://iceimg.com/i/9c/af/2861dda241.png
(Σ to the right)

1. Click onse - gets pressed state = verify.
2. Click one more - gets unpressed state = don't verify.
3. Click more - repeat step 1, 2, 1, 2...

I vote for the checkbox under the "Options" button.
This button already occupies an additional line with no any other button on it (I confess I like it's old place between the text fields).
Or, maybe, the place between the two text fields is the best place for this checkbox (at the right)?
Anyway, regardless of where you place it, I would be glad to have it at this dialog.

I'd like a checkbox that can be easily marked/unmarked using an AHK script assigned to a hotkey, so for me best option is

or something similar. Thanks.
