    When attempting to interrupt COPY, it seems to complete copying the current file before the interruption takes place. This often represents a long delay, esp. when copying is not local, e.g., over the internet. Is it possible to improve this?

    Not with a vanilla COPY, because it's doing everything inside a single
    Windows API call. If you use COPY /G it is possible to interrupt a long
    copy, because Windows will call back to TCC with status updates.
