    Microsoft Shows Off File Management Improvements in Windows 8


    Currently, in Windows 7, moving or copying several files to different places at the same time can become rather chaotic, bringing up many progress dialog boxes that create a cumbersome user experience. With Windows 8, all of these dialog boxes will be consolidated into one, making it easier to manage all undergoing operations. Furthermore, it will be possible to pause current file transfers individually in order to speed up the remaining ones.


    Speaking of speed, Microsoft is making quite a few improvements in this area, by allowing users to track at which speed their files are being transferred. With previous versions of Windows, the transfer speed was displayed, but now a graph will be included, making it easier to figure out if the speed of certain transfers is slowing down or speeding up.

    Microsoft has also made improvements in what it calls “conflict resolution”, or in layman’s terms, what to do when a file is being moved or copied to a directory that already has another file with the same name. Previously, several dialog boxes would pop up asking users which action to take for each individual file. With Windows 8, Microsoft plans to consolidate it all into one dialog box, while displaying more relevant information about each file, making it easier to make the right decision when choosing which file to keep.

    It was about time that they improved it. Personally, I find the graphs a bit pointless, but it is nice to see that they combined the dialog boxes into one. At least, this way a file transfer won't suddenly be halted when there is a problem with some file, which is very handy for big transfers.
