More truthful title of the "Copy" window: "Copying X directories and Y files"

Post by *Woailizhi »

Hi!
When starting the copy process, TCMD always says: "Copying X files to DESTINATION" even when I am copying only directories.
My suggestion would be to make it so that when copying only dirs it says: "Copying X directories", and when copying both files and directories: "Copying X directories and Y files". This might seem stupid for you, but I think it would be good to implement

With best regards,
Nuno.

TC doesn't know in advance if there would be only dirs to copy.

How come? When I want to copy for instance a folder:
C:\myWork to the D drive TC knows that MyWork is a directory rather than a file.

What about if that dir contains files and even sub-dirs ?
TC doesn' look into it before starting the copy, its that simple.

Oh yes, that I know, but the entity itself is a directory, and so it should be noted as such
