prefer "elapsed time" to "time remaining"

During a drive copy I prefer the old "elapsed time" record to the new "x minutes remaining" record. The "minutes remaining" method doesn't really tell me anything useful because it's inaccurate--it keeps changing as the speed of the copying changes, and if there's a glitch, it can go on and on; whereas the "elapsed time" record a) is accurate and b) tells me something useful once I've copied a drive a few times and have a general idea how long it should take. If it's taking longer than it has in the past, I know there's a problem.

I fully agree and one thing doesn't exclude the other - I wouldn't mind having both indicators on my P&P window.
