I am running ubuntu 10.4 lts desktop and ubuntu 9.10 server with the gui active. On both of these machines the data transfer rates over usb and lan have slowed down quite considerably. Also over multiple devices, not the same hardware everytime I try to transfer something.
I'm getting a really low speed (2-3 mbps) while transferring data to my USB drive and external hard drive. I've heard this problem's there in Karmic but not in Jaunty but i have Jaunty and yet I'm facing 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 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 purchased an AZiO BTD-V201 USB 2.0 Micro Bluetooth Adapter for my ubuntu 10.10 system and the bluetooth transfer time is very slow. I am trying to transfer files to my xoom tablet. A 157mb folder is stated to take 1 hour and 30 minutes. Is there anyway that I can speed this up. The device is less than 3 feet from my pc.
I'm at the end of my rope here. And the most frustrating part is, I've found many posts all over the web from others who have had similar problems, but they ALL seem to be older distros and those solutions don't work for me. "Find Similar Threads" only yields one thread, and I don't have the file mentioned in the answer (the original poster didn't either).
Computer: AMD 64 Quad core, USB 2.0 on front bus, dual booting Vista and Ubuntu 10.10 Device: New Sansa Clip+ 8GB mp3 player
Problem: When I transfer files to my mp3 player in Ubuntu, I max out at about 150 KiBbps. It's painfully slow - it takes me half an hour to transfer 300 MB worth of albums. I had similar problems with an older player that may have been usb 1.1, but this one is brand new. And when I switched to Vista (first time in months, thankfully), I was able to transfer the same files at upwards of 3 MBps. I know that flash devices often can't write anywhere near the max speed of USB 2.0, but obviously it can do a whole lot better then 150 KiBps!So, same hardware, same files, different OS - the problem must be with my Ubuntu config.
Recently I had a situation where I had to transfer data from a PC to a Mac. Usually we simply convert the data as necessary, ie. bookmarks, contacts, etc. move the info to a dropbox account and use Windows networking to access the dropbox from a Mac. Well, there was a network issue and it was suggested that I boot to Ubuntu and do this. We do have Ubuntu on a flash drive but I was lost from there. Can anyone point me in the direction of documentation or assist me in understanding how this would be accomplished? I have a Mac, PC and Linux box at home so hopefully I have all the necessary tools to test this out.
I'm experiencing slow speed transfer between two wireless connected laptops running ubuntu 9.10. Using SSH to tranfer files between these two laptops, which connect to the internet via a wirelesss router, with good speed. This is why I'm surprised by this low speed : 52.3 KB/s, averaging 3 hours and 31 minutes for a 700 Mb movie. Is there any way to make this faster ?
I've just managed to access my windows share from Ubuntu but am now getting write speeds (to xp share) of only 9MB/s over my wired network, anyone have any ideas as to why this may be? I've googled but can find no specific answer.
My NIC is: Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM5784M Gigabit Ethernet PCIe (rev 10) (from lspci) on a Dell studio 1737)
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.
I have a 500 gig external usb, and a few 8 gig flash drives. If i copy a file (say a movie or large file) from my primary hard drive (80 gig WD formatted to ext3) to a usb drive it transfers very slowly, about 2 mb/s. But if I copy a file off my secondary internal drive (40 gig seagate formatted to ntfs) it transfers full speed (25-30 mb/s) Its also very slow transfering between internal hard drives (again, no more than 5 mb/s) I checked and as far as i can tell both drives are running in DMA mode. Any reason my primary seems to be causing this bottleneck? it seems to preform fine otherwise (as it is the drive with my ubuntu installation on it)
I would like to know if it is normal to experience 10MB/s data transfer rates during copying between partitions on my local hard drives (Toshiba 250GB 5400rpm SATA) while having three times faster (30MB/s) transfer rates between local partitions and USB drives (Kingston 8GB).
Has anyone else had an issue transferring large files to external usb drives ? What seems to be happening is it will float right along until it gets to the last couple of megs and then just sit there for a few minutes. The larger the file the longer it sits there. I am having the problem with both an external 1 gig usb HDD and two separate thumb drives. All of which have been verified as functional and fast under other systems. All of the drives are formatted in NTFS for portability in the field. I also do not believe this to be a hardware issue as it does it on my daily driver as well as my laptop.
This is the kernel I am running

I have a 500gB USB drive connected to my laptop for backups and filestorage. But I can't get it to play nice with Midnight Commander. My transfer speeds max ut at 2MB/s wich is painfully slow when moving large files such as movies. Worker FM transfers the same files to the same drive much MUCH faster (not sure by how much, though). This leads me to the conclusion that the problem lies with MC.
How can I transfer data from one user account to the other? I wish to delete one of the accounts but before that I want to transfer all the data in that account to the other account so that my data is saved.
For the past few days, i have been trying to fix a common error related to mtp devices such as creative zen. Because of the new updated libmtp8 library, it is impossible to transfer files into any mtp devices. However there is a fix that will remove this issue.
1. Get the older karmic version of libmtp8 from here: URL... 2. Install this package from terminal using: sudo dpkg -i libmtp8*.deb 3. Lock libmtp8 from the synaptic package manager, so it doesn't get updated. 4. Uninstall and then downgrade any mtp packages (through packages.ubuntu.com) that become broken after step 2 to the karmic version. 5. Enjoy.
i have got a laptop for the first time that i'll be taking to college. I have a lot of data on my PC which i want to transfer to my laptop. My computer has Lucid 32bit while laptop has 64 bit installed,Data is too much and transfering via usb drives will take a lot of time.. I do not know how to set up a network.
I need make the copy of my images system on the second PC. But I can`t transfer its data. It seems that the way to images is stored absolutly, for example /home/john/images/holiday. If the second user`s name is Marry, the way will be /home/marry/images/holiday and Shotwell don`t accept this.
I have a number of queries but will start with one. I presently operate 11.04 Classic (no effects). OS is NOT set up as dual boot. As I am considering purchasing a new Desktop, I am wondering what is the best way to recover such things as folders, Firefox bookmarks etc. for four users.
I do have a external HDD which I guess could be used for a possible backup if that is the way to go! The new computer will probably have Windows 7 installed with which I assume I would probably dual boot.
I have installed Xubuntu 11.04. I want to see where when data is transfered by XUbuntu(through internet). In task manager i didn't find any such thing. In fedora there is system monitor where networking information is given to user where is such thing in XUbuntu. My main reason for asking such thing is that i have limited internet connection i don't want that Xubuntu update itself or any other such thing. you may also tell me how to stop updates of Xubuntu 11.04.
