    I was just having the same problem. I was transfering files from one hard drive to another and there was no status bar to tell me how long it would take. So I looked at this thread to find answers. Only I never had to do anything!


    Come to find out the status bar was hiding on my second monitor. Anyone having this problem, check all around the edges of your monitor(s) and if your using more than one desktop,ie..Lion users, make sure you look there too. Chances are it could be stashed away.

    @ abradleygreen - thanks! My second monitor was off and this didn't even occur to me. So simple but hey - it often is! Cheers! :-)

    Ok the solution I found was to select Finder, then use the App Exposé shortcut ( swipe three fingers down) and it'll come up.

    Select Finder from the dock or ctrl+tab so that Finder is active

    Go to the menu bar and select "Window"

    Near the bottom you should see something like "Copy", select it

    Using App Exposé also does the trick as posted by eatChocolate.

    Thank you so much for this! It was totally sitting on monitor 2.
