Whenever I try to copy a file to a USB stick, the progress freezes at a random point and the copy process seems to hang - rest of the system works fine.

When you select some files and copy them, the file copying dialog appears with progress bar and speed indicators. But when you select some other files and copy them, another dialog pops up and both seemingly show more than 50% speed slowdown as compared to only a single file copying dialog.
I was copying hundreds of files to another computer using the scp command that I got the stalled error. Now I am going to copy the files again. Is there any way to avoid copying the already copied files?
Hey Guys,I have posted this under 'Newbie Corner' because I'm really not sure where this should go. I am using Gnome 3.6 with GNOME Shell.

This progress bar jumps to about 98%-99% and stays until the file is finished writing to the disk.
Is there a way to poll the cp command to get its current progress? I understand there's a modified/Advanced copy utility that adds a small little ASCII progress bar, but I want to build my own progress bar using led lights and whatnot, and need to be able to see the current percentage of the file activity in order to determine how many LEDs to light up on the progress bar.
