I started a copy operation yesterday that Copy Handler estimated would take about 20 hours. The copy was to a network share in another location, over internet, so it was a bit slow. For some reason the copy operation had an error in the middle of the night and it sat there waiting for me to click "Retry", which I did in the morning, and the copy continued.

It would be great if you could add an Automatic Retry option and allow the interval/frequency of retries to be configured in minutes or seconds. My suggestion would be to have this feature enabled by default with an interval of 5 minutes.


Thanks for the suggestion. Something close started to appear in CH 1.50beta1 (although is only partially implemented). You can define a feedback rule to automatically retry when an error is encountered.
It does not allow to specify retry interval though and currently is only available in "Enter copy parameters..." dialog box and in task definition files.
