I haven't been thrilled about all that's been floating around about Windows 8, but with its development blog launched about two weeks ago, Microsoft has been unveiling more good than bad. Its latest announced improvement? A much-needed overhaul of the file transfer dialogs, to improve both control and performance.

Only took them ten years! Very glad to see this. Same with the pause functionality... given the sizes of files in this day and age, the need to PAUSE rather than cancel then restart a multi-GB transfer is a no brainer.

I wonder, does this mean if a system (or network) file transfer is interrupted, will it now support resume as well? Maybe that's too much to ask for...
