Recommended Posts

I wish to know when a bunch of files have been written to a slow drive. How can I determine this?

The scripts writes to a USB stick or to a CD-R using Direct CD. I wish the script to wait until all files have been copied from a hard drive before checking that the copies are AOK.

Seriously, whenever you have a wait job like this, just time test the operation, and double the result for to write a Sleep function: "Sleep(3200)".
