If you thought you had problems, consider mine and feel immediately better.
I’m doing some video editing and, as part of that, copying some large files from a DVD onto one of our home laptops. Something in the chain is holding this up, as you can see from the screen shot, below, of the dialogue box currently displaying as I write.
A quick calculation (dividing 29,890 by 365) tells me that at this rate, the file will have finished copying in approximately 89 years’ time. That gives me time to do the dishes, at least, and perhaps a few other things while I wait. But then what will I do with the remaining 7 hours? Any ideas, anyone?
