I just bought a new external hard disk for backup. When copying some files I get this error:
Error splicing file: Value too large for defined data type
I have searched for this but can't find anything relevant. I am copying from a NTFS partition on my Ubuntu to another NTFS partition on the external hdd. There error pops up only for some files no matter the size.
Are the files corrupted or encrypted or is it just bad NTFS? Also I am using Ubuntu 10.4. And the partitions are writable via NTFS config tool.
