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 a problem when i copy files via usb cable from my pc to my device.
it only occurs if the files are a little larger. i use a custom rom on my g2 and if i want to copy the new version of the rom to my device (181 mb) copying stops just before the end and i have to cancel. Then i have to reconnect my g2.
I have recently installed 64bit ubuntu on my quad core intel PC.
One problem that I am having is copying files. The file transfer is VERY quck, you can see the file appear in the new nautilus window and nautilus even produces a preview image for it very fast. The problem is that when copying files there is a LONG pause/delay/halt after the file seems to have copied successfully.
As most of you guys know, it is possible to make a Windows USB-stick for booting, by formatting it as an NTFS-partition and copying all files from the install-DVD to the stick.Formatting it as an NTFS-partition wasn't a problem, but when i copied all files to the USB-stick (in KDE) it didn't copy all files.
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 have file sharing enabled on my Mac. I am trying to copy files from my Mac to my Linux box. On my Linux box (Ubuntu) I am able to access my mac's files. When I try to copy a folder from the Mac to my Linux box, the copying process stops and instead of the folder, I get an un-readable file with the folder's names.
