Actually I think I have figured it out, see my answer.

The way you explain this it would seem to work... but it seems a bit "dark magic" for my liking. I think found another solution that works the original way, but I will definitely keep this snippet for later use.

comment Is there a way to tell if a file is done copying?
Yes, that is the problem. I can't store all the files on B, but this copy will take long enough that I don't want to sit and babysit it by watching for each file to finish and then copying it. Maybe I will go with your expanded version.

comment Is there a way to tell if a file is done copying?
Nope. It isn't under my control and doesn't seem to have any of the things I try and use. I was hoping bash might have something built in to do this. Though I might be able to run the script from my local machine... I will experiment with that.

I don't need to copy once the entire copy is done, because I am copying many files. I need to know when each individual file is done.

The wait 5 minutes idea is a good one (I thought of something similar) but I'm not quite sure how it would be done. Any ideas?

comment Is there a way to tell if a file is done copying?
The problem with this is that on machine A I want to do scp * user@host:~/ and the files being copied would more than fill machine B, so I can't move/rename files after they are copied from A.

Sadly lsof doesn't seem to exist on machine B. About your third option, that won't work because if I let the copy finish before I do anything, I will vastly overwhelm my allowed space on B (something like 10:1). So whatever solution I have has to work during the copy.

Well, you could type M-O-N-D-A-Y into the cell with your keyboard... but somehow I think you mean something different.

comment sshfs equivalent for windows?
This is interesting. I have run into the idea of port tunneling before, but you had to disable normal sharing. This idea of using another virtual adaptor is interesting. I will have to give this a shot. I would still prefer a straight up sshfs (or sftp integration), but this is cool.

comment Cheap reliable NAS or Raid setup?
RAID 0 actually doubles the failure rate, since half the data is on each drive.

comment Cheap reliable NAS or Raid setup?
RAID 0 does not make data redundant. In fact it doubles the failure rate. RAID 1 duplicates data, making the data more reliable.
