I'm wondering which version of Xfce and which version of Thunar you are 
using (and on what distribution). I'm kind of new to Xfce, but I think 
I've always had a progress bar when copying or moving files from one 
location to another. It pops up in a separate little window.

In addition to the version numbers and distro information, maybe it 
would help if you tell us exactly what process you're going through to 
copy or move these files. You know, how the remote file system is 
mounted on your system, whether you are using one or two Thunar windows, 
etc. I don't know if any of that matters, but I guess it might.
