I don't have any problems copying huge files with Caja, but, as @ColdBootII mentioned, the copying ain't really done, 'till it's done, (due to cacheing).ColdBootII wrote: ⤴Sat Jul 06, 2019 11:35 pmYou should not rely on the "copy procedure window" for anything when copying is done to a USB if it involves large files like ISOs. This is not just Caja's issue.wpshooter wrote: ⤴Wed Feb 13, 2019 10:29 amSo, for some reason it just takes an inordinate amount of time
for the VERY FINAL part of the copy process to finish and the copy procedure
window to close !!!
Don't seem to have this problem though when copying anything other than
the ISO image(s).
It doesn't report the actual speed at which the stick is writing data. You may have noticed that if you ever tried to "Eject" it when progress window closed, you receive a notification that "Kernel is busy...bla bla" Of course, if you copy a few small files this is less marked since even the slowest USB 2.0 sticks write at least 2MiB/s in Linux. And the writing speed can vary considerably depending on the state of the stick and the amout of data to copy.
If you open another terminal while coping large files, via file-manager or terminal, and run, ie:
Code: Select all
iostat -x 1
"iostat" is still displaying the real drive's write/read stats for a couple more seconds, depending, hence why when after copying large files to usb, ..., it's always good to wait a second or so, before slamming an "Eject", or "Unmount".
