Cannot copy all files
« on: March 20, 2009, 10:02:46 am »
   I have 55,537 files in 13,037 folders = 368GB total on external 500GB Cavalry HD (NTFS). This is mostly music, some videos and photos but I don't think any of the files > 4GB. I tried to drag and copy them to my new MiniStation™ TurboUSB Portable Hard Drive HD-PFU2 500GB and after 2 attempts I cannot copy all folders. No error message, nothing. First time I copied 184GB, second time around 200GB. I am using Memeo but it's slow and won't give me exact mirror of Cavalry so I can use it with iTunes but switching Drive letter. Should I reformat with NTFS?

   Of course, reformat it to NTFS, the only reason its formatted in FAT32 is so it can be used on Windows / MAC and Linux PC out of the box, one word of advice, dont use the Buffalo formatting tool, it takes agaes, just use Windows itself to format the drive.
PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / Recovery files  LSRecovery.exe file.
