error while copying a big size folder


I have sufficient space in disk and to copy a folder of 6GB to my home, the gnome throws me:

"Error while copying... There is not enough space on the destination"

Exists some politics of space for the user?, what's happening?

Use "cp" in a terminal.

Have you tried to copy from command line, as suggested by sig00? Which is the error message in that case?

What this means is opening a terminal window and entering the cp command to copy a file from somewhere to somewhere:
Code:
cp </path/to/file/to/be/copied> </destination/to/copy/file/to>
The errors in dmesg seem to indicate a USB device disconnect. Other than that, you shouldn't have any trouble copying files to it, unless you don't have user permissions to write to the share.

Edit:
You will also want to double check the permissions on the destination folder with "ls -l /destination/folder/". "df" at the command line should also tell you how much drive space you actually have available.

Sorry sorry sorry.

I have just found the problem. I have seen with df command that had mounted the unit in /usr instead of /home.

Thanks New2Linux2 and Co
