Is there a way to show more details in the Finder copy window? I'm mainly interested in the speed.

great question . i have been trying to find this for a while. I think google should point us to some app – Jay D Jun 5 '13 at 5:29

AFAIK here isn't any "builtin/hidden solution".

You can get (probably rough) numbers:

  • open Applications -> Utilities -> Monitor Activity
  • Select Disk Activity and you get actual IO/Data speed.
