I'm having issues copying files from a USB attached HDD (formatted by the NAS to EXT3) over to a NAS device.
First some background info (maybe relevant or may not be): I upgraded the HDD in my NAS and now I'm unable to copy the files over from the old HDD while plugged into the NAS. Also tried copying over from windows 7 (64 & 32 bit) as well as an XP machine using EXT2FDS & IFS resulting in perpetual re-booting of all three machines.
As a result of that I got a brainwave to try copying the files over from a bootable Linux DVD (Unbuntu 11.04) to the Nas over the network.
I am in Unbuntu now but I am having problems copying to the NAS. It seems to work when I select individual files but when I select a folder/folders/sub folders to copy over an "error while copying" dialog box appears appears. For example: in "Show More Details" here is the copied text from an error: "Error stating file '/media/f0745264-c91b-4528-9fe3-e3469cdb13cc/Public/MANUALS/oliver_manual_99_99GM_tractors_O_7_1956.pdf': Input/output error"
If there is any other method I can get these files copied over please let me know.
Appreciate if anyone can help me out, thank you in advance.
It is a Startech brand Sata to USB device and it is plugged into a PC natively running windows 7 but I have it booted to Unbuntu 11.04 through a bootable CD to copy the files over to the Linux based Qnap TS-109 NAS device.
