I have a new USB Flash drive, 16GB. I am trying to copy a folder from my local drive to this flash drive. The folder I am trying to copy contains about 225000 4KB files. I have tried to copy using the folder GUI and with terminal. Both times it copies exactly 21844 files and then I get the error:
"cannot create regular file `filename': No space left on device"
I also have a compressed copy of the files and I have tried extracting this directly into the USB drive, again stopping after 21844 files.
I have looked for possible solutions and tried emptying the trash but that does not solve the issue. I have also formatted the drive to FAT32 and tried again, but that doesn't work. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I am running Ubuntu 12.04 and the USB drive is an ADATA S107.
