I am currently transferring about 40 Gigs of files from an external disk to my hard drive, and the rsync progress output always shows something like
... to-check=1100/24094) ... to-check=1099/24094)
But during the transfers, the second number grows, and the first never goes under 1000.
... to-check=1200/27199) ... to-check=1199/27199)
That leaves me puzzled - when will the transfer actually end?
Edit: Okay, at some point it ended. Still, what is causing that behavior?
