Possibly speed copies via Terminal
Authored by: jmontana on Jun 06, '07 05:10:21AM

How old is the Mac? I know on my G4/400, anything which displays a progress bar will suck the life out of the CPU just to show the progress bar animation. What happens if you hide the Finder? That might speed up the copy, as it won't have to redraw the window constantly.
