Hi all, I've had a bit of a search around but cant really find any information relating to my problem.
I am attempting to perform a backup of data using the cp command in Fedora 16 x64 Desktop edition. However, the data transfer stops for no apparent reason and freezes on a file. The only option is to cancel the process and attempt to start again.
I am copying from a Windows NTFS partiton (I have the drive piggy-backed on my Fedora system at current) and copying to a Software RAID 5 volume. I initially attempted to do this over the network and placed the fault on potentially a Samba issue, however, with the drive mounted the error still persists.
I have the drive mounted using the options "-o=defaults,mand". The mand option seemed to help the transfer get a bit further, but it still gets stuck
Anyone have any ideas? Is this an issue with NTFS compatibility? I don't think so due to it occuring on the network as well. Or is this an error with the RAID volume and its ability to cope with large data changes? I have checked /proc/mdstat and all appears fine.
Im sorry its so long winded, but hopefully someone can help. Any more information you need, just ask
