Raid mirroring of the drives (RAID 1) would accomplish this easily, there are other ways however I'm not familiar enough with them to attempt to explain how to manage it.

If you use Windows 2000 or up, you can create 1 mirrored partition that spans 2 or more drives, where data written to this one partition is stored on those disks simultaneously. In order to do this, go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management. Open Disk Management Depending on which OS version you are using, you may need to convert ...

Normal sharing With samba under Linux [1],[2] you will be able to see the file shared by a Windows computer and to allow to windows users to see your files. With windows you can share one or more directories [3] as usual for the previous windows versions. You have to set the authorizations for the allowed users, if only for reading or even for writing......

if you copy a file from a flash drive to something with infinite write speed (posix /dev/null/, windows \\.\nul) then yes you will see only the effects of read speed, application, and operating-system overhead.

I have a rather simple question But the answer isn't simple. is the speed at which data is transferred from a drive it's read speed? Transferring data from a device is reading. The I/O direction is always from the perspective of the CPU. The data transfer will occur in two phases. The first phase is from the medium (e.g. disk platters or NAND flash) ...

Whether you use robocopy of Windows Explorer doesn't matter. The computer you run the command on always acts as middle-man in the transfer and all traffic passes through that computer. So yes: It would be much more efficient to push the files from the remote server to the remote clients. That way all traffic stays on the remote site.

You may be able to start a wifi hotspot on the mobile device and then connect to that wifi network from your computer. Then find an application such as an FTP server which will allow you to share files over FTP which can then be accessed on your machine most likely within your web browser by doing something like ftp://address-of-phone If FTP does not work ...

You are using WiFi, and WiFi have different limits depending on what your router and wifi card are capable of. The following will take in mind that you will use consumer-grade hardware in a house environment where conditions are optimal (not much interference from signal degration through objects) 2.4Ghz band is limited to about 40mbps in optimal ...

My first suggestion would be get drop box. You can just drag and drop files onto your dropbox account and use them off of both computers. Dropbox actually has a lan sync option which can automatically sync over files to each computer. www.dropbox.com If all else fails, you can always use USB thumb drives! Which actually could be faster depending on usb 3 ...

I was able to achieve that by changing the code page number in command window, i used the command chcp 1256 inside a batch file , then i saved the batch files with arabic 1256 page encoding and it worked. cheers

The first bottleneck will either be the limitations of the medium (SATA/USB/FireWire) or, as you mentioned yourself, the read speed of the source drive. Copying files from one disk to another doesn't utilize the very high reading and writing speed of RAM, because the clipboard only stores information about the files location, and not the files themselves.

This may be a case where both of you are correct. To quote from Cool Hand Luke, "What we've got here is failure to communicate". You are correct, there is no content that could cause failure of a copy operation in the manner you describe. However, you may have misinterpreted what your friend was saying. If verification is happening, the error stems from ...

Personally I wrote a python script for this kind of thing. Its called volcano, because it causes all the files in the directory to erupt, and spill out into the folder root. Obviously something you want to be careful with. only pass it a directory that you want to erupt. #!/usr/bin/env python #volcano import os, sys, shutil def main(): for a in sys....

How is that different subvolumes can share data blocks when using COW, but not in the should-be easier operation of moving data? mv uses the rename syscall to attempt the move. btrfs's kernel rename impl detects the cross subvolumes move and explicitly disallows this (even if under the same mount point): /* we only allow rename subvolume link between ...

A simple way to silence the Bluetooth notification sounds, without going through all of the pain, of digging for the permission to do so - you can just change the sound, to a silent wave file - as shown in the picture. Record one second of audio, with all controls at zero; copy this file, to the C:\Windows\media directory; then select it, via the Bluetooth ...

Maybe some simple Powershell snippet? copy-item -path E:\myfolders -destination C:\newfolder -container -force -recurse -erroraction continue -warningaction continue -confirm:$false In order to run, open Powershell console (available in every Windows since XP), change -path and -directory parameters to your start and destination folder, copy the command ...
