copy will only wait if it still expects data to be transmitted. Maybe the web server cancels sending data when a specific amount of bytes of a specific file has been sent even if the file is not sent complete ? I experienced this several times when downloading files via a web browser. ALways with the same files. Imagine the web server requests the data to be sent from another web server and gets a timeout while downloading. Then it will stop transmitting to your client , too. Jean
