Monitoring local file transfers

I'm also looking for a way to monitor the status of a local file  
transfer.... from a connected hard drive to an internal drive. I'd  
like to be able to inform a user of the status of an ongoing file  
transfer (through a progress bar), since the transfer could take  
30-60 seconds or even longer. RevCopyFile appears to be a completing  
blocking operation. I believe this could be done with the "put url"  
command, but I can't figure out how to use the  
LibURLSetStatusCallBack command so that it will monitor this local  
(rather than Internet-based) file transfer.
