I use two methods to remotely control my servers. Im XP SP2 they are Server 2003 SP2. I use Remote Desktop for most everything but I also use UltraVNC if I need to look at the desktop, but its so slow its almost useless.

My question is I am transferring a 300GB folder and want to know when its done. Right now the only way to do that is to walk down there, bah, or to use VNC, eh.

Out of curiosity is there another way I can tell when its done?

Not a critical issue just wondering if anyone knows of something I am missing.

Thanks

Locally, because it was usb so I was next to the server anyways.
