Writing to usb flash drive
I experience small problem with writing big files to usb flash drives (FAT32/NTFS/EXT). I think it casues buffering before write.
I have 2GB file
- I start to copy it to usb flash drive.
- First few seconds works only HDD (reading, almost 300 MB), USB flash drive is idle.
- After that USB flash drive starts to write.
- Reading has finished, but writing is still running (nautilus/midnight commander shows 99 or 100% of progess) for about minute after.
Is there any solution for immediately writing? It causes some problems when usb drive is slow, there is no led indicator and I don't see any progress (except iotop).
