Does any1 know "file manager(s)" that copy files optimizing the process ?

I mean, not the "windows explorer conventional" copy/transfer mode. I would like to know if there is any file manager that has intelligent copy/transfer mode. To copy Files from medias to HD.

Freewares ones would be great

@Dialhot
LOL. I know exactly how do you feel. I will say "your words" to me:
"sparskter why the hell you want a file manager with "cute" stuff copy methods?!?! I said NO there are NO ONE!! DID YOU COPY THAT?!!!"

Anyway I found a nice one:

Quote:
/MIR :: MIRror a directory tree (equivalent to /E plus /PURGE).
Very useful for backup. Imagine you have a AD (Windows 2003 Active Directory) with the users folders. With Mirror you update your backup the smart way: old files are deleted, new files are copied, unmodified ones are skipped (very fast) !

Quote:
/Z :: copy files in restartable mode.
Restartable mode is great when copying large files: if your computer crashes you can continue where it stopped later! Imagine how useful is this when you are copying a large folder between two pcs on a local network.

note: it works only folders-to-folders; this is not a big problem: just create a folder, move your files and use it.
