Total size copied

While copying, SD displays the count and size total, but when finished it only shows the count of files copied. Is it poosible to show also the size copied?

It's possible, of course. We'll consider it for the future: note, though, that the information is available in the log.

I'd also like more final summary info included in the main SD! window. Basically, the same stuff that's displayed while SD! is running. Thanks.

Adding my vote

I, too, woould like the info. Not sure why other than curiosity. Yes, it's available in the log, but I think it could be in the main GUI without clutter.

And while on the subject of wishes, my latest is for multiple options for "On successful completion." As is it's choose one only. My PowerBook suffers from the failure to sleep issues well documented by everybody but Apple. I have some nifty ways to deal with it but none that would be as elegant as simply having SD! Quit and Sleep the machine when done.

Well, we'll quit regardless, macfeller. So, set it to sleep when done. As long as you have no other backups pending, that'll work...

Oh.

I thought it went back to the window wherein ther was the OK button. If it quits regardless, why is Quit even an option?

Quit is an option for when you're running manually. But, if you're running scheduled, we quit if the app wasn't running beforehand, and leave it running if it was.

Ok

That explains it, sort of. But, I do not do scheduled. I do run daily but do so in a way that when I run SD! I want it to Quit and my machine to Sleep. Presently my way of doing that is decidedly UNelegant. Why not give the options? I paid the developer of Pause ( <http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/26158> ) some $$ cause his app helps in my convoluted schemes. His app also has options to Quit and Sleep.

Ah. Well, we'll certainly consider this in the future.

Heh.

That's all I'm asking. I can't believe more folk wouldn't find it useful. Nor, since the Pause kid (and I do mean kid) could do it, that it's all that hard.

Whatever. Thanks for this wonderful tool. Since I am prone to experimentation and other means to screw my machine over, I frequently have cause to giggle when SD! saves my butt.

It's almost never a matter of something being hard to do, actually (though some things are). Rather, it's a matter of trying to simplify things to the point where they cover most things, without adding excessive complication.

We knew, of course, that there were other combinations of things that could be wanted as "on completion" actions. But, when you start combining them, where do you stop? Do you turn it into a big set of checkboxes? What about things that aren't legal together? Two pop-ups, with a volume action and a "termination"?

You get the general idea. Suddenly, a simple list of items becomes more complicated, both in UI and in semantics.

Sure, the "kid" did it. But, maybe he shouldn't have.
