When file copying on krusader am getting errno: 5 Often the full size of file fails to copy and error is flagged up: can't copy ... - for example only 154MB out of true 265MB or again only 213 MB out of 1.4GB.

The files in question are .wav

This when doing a multiple copying operation of several .wav files.

When I try to copy the offending files again - THEN they copy fine.

I suspect memory - but without knowing the error codes am at a loss.

Copying from usb port to another usb port.

Krusader Version 2.4.0-beta1 "Migration" Using KDE Development Platform 4.8.5 (4.8.5)

Ubuntu 12.04 3.2.0-23-lowlatency (#31-Ubuntu SMP PREEMPT Wed Apr 11 02:24:03 UTC 2012)
