This isn't urgent for anyone but you. Don't flag things as urgent, we all volunteer our time here.

You don't say anything about what you're using to copy. Are you doing it through a GUI, command line, or what? Over the network, or from one place to another on a machine? Using what version of linux???

If you'd like help, provide some useful information.

Hi and welcome.

I suggest you install Midnight Commander or "mc", it is a console file manager.

Navigate with arrow keys, it will show you the progress files being copied.

The point--I assume--was that people are not supposed to use the word "urgent". I think that LQ should have an automatic word-substitution routine, For example, we might have the following substitutions:

urgent-->fluffy
s**t-->apple
holy s**t-->wormy apply
#$^@#^!!!-->aww, shucks!!!

As for pay, **I** get paid!!! If you want to know the secret, write me privately.

da_fog;

Trust me, we do have patience with newcomers. But we do not downshift and step on the gas when someone says they are in a hurry, or have an "urgent" problem.

I don't want to overload you with "newcomer advice", but PLEASE get rid of the texting shorthand (SMS?) and use whole words, punctuation, etc.

And: Welcome to LQ!!

which distribution are you using?

As someone suggested midnight commander is a good way for this in console.

to invoke use "mc" command.

Sometimes it's not installed by default but you can get in your distro's repository easily or google for how to install and use it.

Please read the thread about how to post questions. It's never good to flag anything as urgent, at all, anytime. Alot of people won't even answer a question they know, just because it's marked "HELP!! URGENT!". Spelling and writing clearly don't hurt either.....


And your updated information doesn't make sense. You say you're using SFTP, to copy 40GB from one hard drive to another? SFTP is a network protocol, used to copy info from one server to another.

If you're moving the information from one hard drive to another on the same box, you could just do "mv <source file> <destination file>", and it'll be alot faster than moving the file from the server, to your workstation, back to the server in another place. The "--verbose" flag may give you more info on an mv/cp command. Midnight commander (as was suggested to you), would be good too.

If you're moving it with SFTP from one server to another, check out the "PROGRESS" flag, found on the SFTP man page. That will give you a progress indicator. SCP will give you progress indicators as well.

Just to add to what TB0ne kind reply: mc supports ssh logins and will show scp progress as well.
