    Hi,

    When I use Ambient to copy files, windows are locked until the copy is finished.

    I remembrer a switch option to change into Ambient prefs to unlock use on interface during copies but dont remember where this option is.

    Can somebody help me please?

    Thanks for advence.

    Normal behavior is only locking the window from where you are copying....all others are normaly unlocked.
    Ambent hidden prefs can be found in Sys:prefs/ambient/Ambient.prefs. But I did'nt find any enties for your problem there......

    @ sergius

    If, in fact, all Ambient windows are temporarily locked, you might have a dying disk. I experienced this symptom not too long ago myself.

    Seeing as I'm too late to the party let me just correct this one bit. As per the thread linked by Korni, the hidden prefs are in SYS:Prefs/Ambient/Advanced.conf :-)
