About 1 Day

I just love the way Microsoft estimates when copying files on how long it will take. Usually at the very beginning its extreamly high and then as it gets closer to the end its closer to the actual time. Here is an example. I was backing up my 16 GIG USB drive that has approx. 12.7 GIG of data on it. From the following picture MS estimates that it will take About 1 Day to copy. It tells the amount of data of 10.2 GB left and the speed is approx. 10.1 MB a second. My calculations comes out to be around 17 minutes which is what it actually took (give or take a few minutes).
