guess I should have spent that 2 hours sorting thru google garbage, to find out which app to use
use cp... no it doesn't copy this type
use dd, not it doesn't copy free space
use soem 3rd pary app, cost $$
so after about 45 mins, instead, I used that lil red X up in the top right corner and ditched google
used bulk select, copy and paste
& went about my business for the day
Come back to find...
It halted to say, can't copy security key, file was nice to wait on me
wasn't worth a DM for halting on.. SHOULD HAVE JUST DONE IT
after it, it is root access.
waiting all day for me to come back and say ok, sucked pretty hard
what app is best for diskcopy
then bulk multi directory & file copy
AND WILL DO security keys too
(as well as cross platform/format)
what is up with only using 1.30 Gb of 16G RAM & 8 (never even touched) Swap
to copy 400G of data?
and taking hours to do it
is there a way to have "apply action to all files" ... actually apply to ALL, there after?
That original copy, just finshed
ended in a error, saying not enough space
from nother drive, which is the same exact size
931Gb formatted, can't hold a 400G copy
PFFFTP! ... sounds so windows-ish
off to see what happens with cmd robocopy
