I'm trying to copy two folders, one of size 4gb and one of 6.2gb from one partition to another using cp, and i get the following result:
attempting to tar the file in order to cp it later results in:
USERNAME@COMPUTERNAME:~/Desktop$ cp -r FOLDERNAME/ /DESTINATION/
cp: writing `/DESTINATION/FOLDERNAME FILENAME': File too large
tar: /media/disk/.fr-lsDMPX/FILENAME.tar: Wrote only 4095 of 10240 bytes
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
bzip2: I/O or other error, bailing out. Possible reason follows.
bzip2: File too large
Input file = /media/disk/.fr-lsDMPX/FILENAME.tar, output file = /media/disk/.fr-lsDMPX/FILENAME.tar.bz2
bzip2: Deleting output file /media/disk/.fr-lsDMPX/FILENAME.tar.bz2, if it exists.
mv: cannot stat `/media/disk/.fr-lsDMPX/FILENAME.tar.bz2': No such file or directory
anyone have any ideas?
