When files are copied from Windows 7/8 NTFS partition, it throws the following error on some files.
"Error splicing file: Value too large for defined data type"
These files are not random. The copy operation consistently fails on certain files. Some of these files are jpg images with reasonable sizes. Obviously there are no errors when copied to USB drive through Windows 8. Searching by error description shows that mount options can be modified to prevent such errors. But this is not a CIFS share. It is the partition on the same hard drive where Ubuntu is installed.
The files are not corrupted as they can be opened with image viewer.
Any help would be appreciated. I dual boot Windows 8 Pro with Ubuntu 12.10. I am trying to backup windows files using Ubuntu.
