slug hanging on disk1 to disk2 backup / copying many files
- Hi there,
After a fair bit of fiddling, I've finally managed to get my slug
working with unslung 6.8 beta, using 2 western digital caviar 250GB
drives in external enclosures.
I've had a few issues copying files to it (i.e. it would being
'invisible' from the windows machine i was copying from after about 2
hours of copying) but i finally managed to migrate 50GB of mp3s accross.
I had assumed these issues to be related to the network and possibly
because i was copying from NTFS.
I now want to back up disk 1 (containing the shares) to disk 2, so
have followed the instructions at
. This appears to start copying the files but then suffers from the
same problem as copying over the network - i.e. the slug hangs after
10 minutes, there is no disk activity and the script still appears to
be executing. The only apparent solution is to pull the power and
reboot, after which all the shares are accessible again.
I have tried different usb enclosures (from the approved list) but
this appears to make no difference.
Does anybody have any other suggestions? I can't believe that
replacing the slug itself is going to help.
