When SAS does its scan, many of us prefer to let it run at maximum speed by dropping all other running applications. But that creates a problem, since we soon become impatient, and must find little tasks to do while SAS finishes. After a while, all the waiting makes us wish for a definite time of completion. Unfortunately, there is no way to determine that unless we know the number of files in the system, or have memorized the time required. On networks, the problem is multiplied. Familiarity with many machines and their respective configurations is almost impossible. A direct, easy solution is to feature a progress bar for at least the full-system scans. With a quick glance at the screen, we can estimate how much time remains, and structure our time accordingly.
