I am trying to move a massive number of files (80,000+; 330 GB) from a Linux machine to a NAS device. The Linux machine is used primarily as a file server. The files were created/placed on the Linux machine by the two of us in the office who are using the machine as a file server.
I have been able to copy about 200 GB to the NAS so far, including many Mac files. However, every once in a while I’ll get the following error:
Under show more details it says
All files that return that error were created or placed on the Linux machine by a Mac (Quark or Office). The files are in /home/linbox, the main home folder is /home/rhythmuser.
I took a stab in the dark and ran **gksudo nautilus **and **su nautilus **to see if that would make a difference, but it didn’t.
Is there any way to force the system to copy? It’s a home office, so there doesn’t need to be any particular permissions in place – anyone should be able to do anything to the files, so changing permissions in the entire folder would be OK too. Also, I’m not looking to delete or move the files, just copy them to the NAS.
