Time to be a grumpy old man...

Here goes - I don't like the copy replace dialog in Windows Server 2008.

It's too big, there's too much detail and the things you are meant to click to do something are not obviously clickable until you hover the mouse over them.


Hmm. Looking at this I might be forgiven for thinking that I only have two options here - "Skip" and "Cancel".

Then I hover over what I thought was informational text:


and I realise that I could click that big highlighted area of text as if it was a button. But it's not a button. Then there is all that tiny text beside the HUGE icon telling me whether the file I am copying is larger or newer than the file it is going to replace!

I am going to struggle with this one, I can tell.

Ok, grumping over.
