I am trying to move over 1 Terrabyte of files from a two terrabyte drive into my Ext4 drive where Ubuntu 11.04 is installed. The two terrabyte drive is where my winxp used to be and it's currently paritioned into three partitions. I would like to reformat into a single partition that's why I'm moving the files.
When moving the files from the 2Terrabye NTFS partition into the Ext4 partitioned drive, the best transfer rate I could get is 11 megabytes per second. When I transfer from one NTFS drive to another NTFS drive, I could get as high as 70megabytes per second in WinXP. Is there a way to speed up the speed transfer?
Otherwise, the file transfer dialogue says it would take 26 hours to move all the files!!!
Edit: both drives are internal drives connected via a sata II.
So I've got a 500gb ext4 formatted drive I use for backup, and I'm trying save my personal files from my laptop's hard drive (the laptop power supply just died) but whenever I try to copy+paste something from the NTFS laptop drive to the ext4 drive, nautilus freezes up, and suddenly both of my CPU cores hit 100% and Ubuntu is using 1.6GB of RAM, from like 200MB when it's idle.
I'm using 10.04 Pentium D 2.4Ghz Dual 2GB RAM
The laptop drive is a 5000RPM 250GB Sata, NTFS partition is 125GBThe backup drive is a 7200RPM 500GB Sata, ext4 partition is 500GB
i have a bit of a problem and it seems i am not alone, google gave me a lot of hits but no solution.i'm running a dual-boot system on my laptop.
ubuntu 9.10 is installed on ext3 windows xp sp3 on ntfs files are on another ntfs partition
if i want to copy a file (or folder) bigger than 250mb my laptop literally gives up until the file transfer is complete. opening up a terminal via keyboard shortcut gives my an idea how long a ice age can last.this happens with ext3 to ext3; ext3 to fat32; ext3 to ntfs and ntfs to ntfs.today i wanted to backup some files (12GB ~4k files) the first 4gb ran with 20MB/s (all open applications grayed out). after 2h i came back to see that only 6GB where done.
I have 8.04.3 server-32bit. It is on an HP 2.3ghz Pent 4 with 512 mb of RAM.I had previously installed Ubuntu and Kubuntu in a dual boot with XP (actually had a triple boot with XP, Ubuntu, and a BETA Windows 7) for a while, Grub got messed up so I ended up wiping it and just put my XP back on it. I have been intimidated by the command line and when thinking server, I tried the 30 day deal with windows Home server, its OK but it's $100.00 for the permenant version.
Anyway, I manned up to the challenge, installed Ubuntu server, set up as SSH and Samba. I administer from PuTTy and WEBMIN, I tried TightVNC but the GUI seemed very useless, so on a reinstall I went headless.The problem is I have alot of MP3 files I want to transfer back to the server that I had previously transfer to and back again from the Windows server, it was sceamin' fast compared to this. I have found threads talking about using NTFS, I have the EX3, or whatever the Ubuntu format is. Could that cause slow transfers, from NTSF through Samba to Ubuntu?
For the past week+ I have been experiencing very slow file transfers, moving files from one HDD to another - both internal, connected with SATA, should anyone care.. When I move any file, regardless of its size, it is moved with 1.1 MB/sec at very best That's a major pain in the behind, even for moving small amounts of data! If anyone could point me in the right direction, or give me a solution
I have connected two computers with each other both having fc installed. Now, when I tried to transfer a file from one computer to another using scp command, sometimes the file transfers very slowly and sometimes very fast. I wana know that why it sometimes transfers slowly. By slow I mean much slower than a file downloaded from a dsl.
We have a server and we have instales an Open suse 10.3 on it. We created a Samba server also. Made to share folder, that we acces from network from other computers that have xp.
The problem is if we try to copy from server it is very slow only 100-300kb/s. The strange thing is that if i copy 1 file then its slow but if i start to copy another one the speed gos up to 10-15mb/s. Evry time i want to copy somethin or install from that server i need to start another copy. If i copy from a comp to that server the speed is normal only if i copy from server its slow.
Ok, the only thing I remember doing is changing out my hard drive because it went bad. I swapped in a new one and reformatted with Windows 7. (I can hear the boos and hisses as I type) Anyway, now file transfers are exceedingly slow. They are ~10KB/s when they should be ~40MB/s. The odd thing is that it mostly occurs on large files, but not all large files and sometimes smaller files are affected. Copying files from one hard disc to another on the server, as well as copying from the server to Win7. Local files are not affected. The problem does not occur on my laptop which has Slackware Linux on it.
Another thing about the problem is that when I mount a disc image on a virtual drive, access time is very slow and windows explorer is very unresponsive and often locks up completely.
I have a samba server with Slackware Linux on it and a Windows 7 client. DHCP is configured through dnsmasq. (dhpc-host=<mac address>,<computer name>) Every now and again, dnsmasq seems to conk out when I try to access the network with my Win7 machine. I then have to reboot the server, as my only access to it is via SSH and I don't have a video card in it. After the server reboots everything is fine until accessing the network with my Win7 machine conks it out again.
I've tried different MTU settings, different network cards on the Win7 machine(Dlink and realtek), various regedit hacks, but none of them produce any results.
this is all on LAN.Whenever I transfer files through the router A to a pc connected wirelessly, the internet hit the speed of molasses. What can I do to rememdy this? I was thinking about having my fedora box connect wirelessly to the internet, through router A, and then bridge via ethernet to router B and then have my pc always connected to router B, so when i transfer files, router A remains unaffected. Is this correct logic?
I am having a problem trying to transfer large file (~700MB) from one station in my home to another. I have 3 PCs hooked up through a router. 1 is wired to the router and the other two are wireless. One wireless is a laptop that has a built-in Atheros wireless card that was supported during the FC13 install. The other wireless has a plug-in wireless card made by Belkin (F7D1101). I had to use ndiswrapper to get it to work on FC13.(BTW all PCs are running FC13)
The one with the Belkin card is, I think, the problem. The one with the Atheros card will transfer files at a rate of about 8MB/sec to the one with the wired ethernet connection. The one with the Belkin card will not transfer at rates over 300KB/sec to either of the other two PCs. I have tried file transfers both encrypted and not and it makes no difference.
I've fixed almost everything except this problem. My network card worked fine on Windows but since I switched from Windows, file transfer over the network using my network card is horribly slow, 30kbps max on 100mbps wired connection. I know my network card is working fine, and I'm trying to copy files between my Ubuntu PC and windows PC, I've set up Samba as recommended by these forums, I can transfer files when using wireless connection, but I still can't transfer files at a speed faster than 30kbps on a wired connection.And the funny part is, it's fast when copying files from Ubuntu to Windows but it's slow the other way. And I've tried this with more than 4 different Windows computers.lspci returns this for the network controllerCode:Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 191 Gigabit Ethernet AdapterIs there any way of updating drivers or something that I can do to fix this problem
Whenever I transfer a movie into my 16GB USB flash disk, my whole system becomes windows-like and unusable!
When i drag the file(s) into the USB disk folder, it starts out fine and pretty darn fast (25mb/sec) then slowly decreases until it's unbearably slow (3m/sec) and as a side effect my whole system starts deteriorating. I basically have to wait for the file to finish transferring before i can use my desktop again!
This has been happening with every version since Karmic (all 64bit)- I put up with it because I don't use the USB stick that much.. but lately it's been my go to source for transfering large files to/from work.
i am trying to transfer a file from my live linux machine to remote linux machine it is a mail server and single .tar.gz file include all data. but during transfer it stop working. how can i work and trouble shooot the matter. is there any better way then this to transfer huge 14 gb file over network,vpn,wan transfer. the speed is 1mbps,rest of the file it copy it.

I really need to be able to sort the directories on some of my disks - not just sort the display of them, but actually sort the contents. I remember the old Norton DS.EXE that did it back in FAT16 days before long filenames, and after some googling, I found fatsort is in the repositories, but that doesn't do NTFS or ext4...
Ubuntu preferable (obviously, since I would really like to sort some things in my ext4 partitions), but if anyone knows a Windoze program that can at least do the NTFS partitions, that will be a start... Of course, I could get a new HDD, manually create all the folders in order, and copy the files one-by-one in order, but I don't have that level of patience!
I have a dual boot system with Ubuntu Lucid and Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit on a 320 GB hard drive. During the last month, I've completely moved from Windows to Ubuntu but I have to keep Windows for a few softwares like ooVoo and Office, especially OneNote. But now 105 GB for windows and 50 GB for Ubuntu doesn't seems right, as I can't copy any more files on my Desktop in Ubuntu, because it's full. I was just wondering if it's possible to resize the NTFS partition and add like 50GB or so to the ext4 partition which is my Linux's root. The NTFS drive is on /dev/sda5 and the ext4 one is on /dev/sda7.
i wanted to change the format of my backup drive from ext4 to ntfs. what i thought would be possible without erasing the data, was simply done by formating the drive. but because this took only 6 sec, i have still hope that my data was not completely destroyed. are there any possibilities that i get my data back? i unmounted the drive afterwards and did not write anything to it.
Having a bit of a issue with Debian Squeeze and transferring files to the Sony PSP..Hook up PSP to USB port and Debian mounts it..I go to drag a 125 meg mp4 to video folder..Copy windows takes about 10 seconds to transfer it..Exit USB mode and there is no video there. Go back into USB mode and look at video folder on the PSP memory stick and there is no video..It vanished. From another after copy progress closed I right clicked PSP and unmounted it..
It error-ed saying device was busy and could not unmount..Looking at light on PSP i see memory stick is still being written to..i wait for light to stop flashing..About a minute or so..Then am able to unmount it..Go to PSP video and theres the video ready to be watched. Debian isnt accurately showing the copy progress...Its showing complete when it isnt..I have to watch the light on PSP to know when it is truly finished.
I have nearly 200GB of space free on the HD with my linux main EXT4 partition, and I'm wondering if I can convert a large part of this to a new NTFS partition that I can use for my windows XP paralell install?
Basically, what do I have to do to resize and create the new partition and how do I get windows to recognize it?
I have one computer with windows and one with ubuntu. I have an external drive (FAT32) with files taken from an NTFS (mp3s and such) and I would like to put them and use them on an ext4 ubuntu platform. Can I make a partition of the /home folder NTFS and the system ext4 and function properly? I do have configuration files in the /home folder since Im building a domain controller that utilizes samba on ubuntu: would I be better off using a dual boot with windows/ubuntu and placing the files on the Windows partition? what is my best option?>
I have just purchased a 2TB drive for my server and I was trying to get an idea of the differences between these file systems or other file systems out there. What is the amount of space after formatting for ext4, ext3, and ntfs?
I am using rhel4 with kernel 2.6.9-55 ELsmp. I have recently purchased 250gb seagate portable usb HDD. I have already mounted the usb HDD by updating Kernel with mode 755 and root user. I can transfer file from usb HDD to rhel system. But I am unable to make directory or copy file from rhel4 file system to usb HDD with ntfs. It is giving error message of permission denied though the device having write permission. I have already installed ntfsprog-2.0.0 in root. But there is no improvement. Is there any thing I can do to transfer data from linux system to ntfs.
I just ruined my /ntfs partition. I used the mkfs command and stopped it by ^C immidiately, but it was too late. mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdb1
Is there a way to recover NTFS partition now ? The partition </dev/sdb1> was 'ntfs' and mkfs.ext4 did not check if it was a ext4 or give any pre-check warning, just went ahead with making the ext4 fs on a ntfs partition.
i 've been using fedora 14,15 for like few months and i still have a 4GB NTFS partition win XP pro.i have installed fedora in about like 20gb for root and home ext4.i rarely use win xp nowadays (once in a week) considering i was using windows for like years.i have a commondata partition of about 130GB NTFS.i now dont want to use the windows and i want to convert the 130GB NTFS to ext4, but i am worried that if somehow at some point i crash my partition tables and i was using ext4 i wouldn't be able to recover the data as easily as i would in a windows.i want to know whether there is a reliable ext4 data recovery tool for fedora?igoogled and i found this link .. if any of you guys have used these tools can you share the experiences ?Mondo RescueTestDisk safecopy PhotoRecddrescue
Just installed opensuse 11.3 Kdeversion on my laptop. Before installing it on live mode i had a problem of accessing my other drives (NTFS, FAT32 and EXT4) which said HAL system policy...etc mounting error. I could access all drives with root privilege. I thought problem will be solver once i install opensuse on my system. How ever i was really disappointed after seeing the same problem post install. Googled around for the solution and got this link
After this the problem got worse now i am not able to see any of the drives in the side panel. Gone through many forum and posts all discuss about external USB HDD.
