Verify each files one by one, instead of all at the end

 Helps to know fire /directory copy has failed earlier

Not really efficient, it is best to verify at the end, for one single reason, transfers runs at higher speed when it is a "stream", if you stop each time and verify, it would take more overall time to do the entire transfer.

Ahh thanks makes sense 


I was copying and verifying a 4tb disk to another one 

Very large files and found after hours of copying some of the large files had mismatch md5

I could have known this problem hours earlier if it had option to verify after :-)


Turned out it was a flakey external usb disk enclosure

i jumped up and down on it till i got blister after that and bought new enclosures

Thanks all
