So I had a few large files to copy, about 5GB each. From/to same partition. Start the copy, it says '3 minutes left', so I think....a quick solitare game. And poof...system hangs. Nada. Nothing. I wait about 5 minutes, and nada...mouse is obviously not working. Power down, reboot. And of course the new directory I was copying to doesn't even exist after a reboot.
When copying large (or even files of a few KB) to an sd card from ubuntu 10.10, the files appear to be there but when i access the card from another device, the files are either missing or 0 bytes in size.
I suspect that the problem is that it takes time for the files to copy to the card and I'm taking it out too soon but there is no progress bar - im just doing it from cmd line.
I have two physical hard disks, one around 200GB and one 1TB. I had the large one splitted into 3 partitions around 300GB each. I used Windows XP.
Yesterday I formatted the small disk and installed Ubuntu 10.4 (trying not to mess with anything in the large disk).
Now from within Ubuntu I can see only the third partition of the large disk (referring as size 1TB).
I have CentOS 6.4 64-bit PC with 24 GB of memory. I typically use /dev/shm extensively for large temporary files. However, about a month ago, it started behaving wierd. When I copy large files to /dev/shm, the PC slows down and starts swapping to disk.
I'm using rsync from Cygwin to do a large scale data transfer from an aging HP MSA 1000 to a new DAS attached to a different server. I have a daemon running on the remote server in read only mode and a local copy writing the files to disk.
One of my servers is an image repository with over a million files spread across about 300 directories. Each file averages only a couple hundred kilobytes.
Advanced-Copy is a powerful command line program which is very much similar, but little modified version of original cp command. This modified version of cp command adds a progress bar along with total time taken to complete, while copying large files from one location to another. This additional...

I have some tar.gz files that total many gigabytes on a CentOS system. Most of the tar.gz files are actually pretty small, but the ones with images are large. One is 7.7G, another is about 4G, and a couple around 1G.
I have unpacked the files once already and now I want a second copy of all those files.
I assumed that copying the unpacked files would be faster than re-unpacking them.
