I am using Linux via an external drive & as such it's not able to provide that transfer speed efficiency as is provided by internal SATA plus not every PC has USB3...
Thus when I transfer say a ~5gb film from or to this external drive I notice that OS stucks or gnome breaks..
I thought that it be better that I use a defined transfer while copying large files...the idea is to cap transfer rate at max of 10mb/sec instead of present +20mb/sec. So how do I do it
cp <source> <desitnation> -<flag> <mydefinedrate>
