Problem with copying files from HDD to SSD (Mint 18.3 and 19.1)

Post by Valsodar »

Consider this topic a bug report.

There's something wrong with these two versions of Mint but unfortunately IDK enough about linux to identify the cause of the problem.

A large file - Taxi (1998).mkv with size 3.4 GB copied from HDD (WD Blue) to SSD (Corsair 120 LE):
• Windows 7 - 1 minute 12 seconds.
• Mint 18.3 and 19 - 2 minutes 56 seconds.
• Arch Linux - 16 seconds. When Arch took only 16 seconds to copy the file, I thought the process failed, so I ran the movie and the whole thing was there, perfectly watchable, down to the last second of it.

I thought this problem was caused by the file system (ext4) but since Arch is also on ext4, apparently the problem is somewhere else in Mint.
Intel Core i7-4770, Palit GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, Corsair 32GB DDR3-1600, Firefox, (rolling) Arch Cinnamon

Ok. It's a bug report.

As these are support forums, not developer forums, perhaps you might try posting on the Linux Mint GitHub pages.
