    This bug happened to me today on 16.04 when copying large files to a USB drive.

Yes, it is a bug. Do as follows:

  1. Unlock Nautilus from the launcher.
  2. Logout/login.
  3. Run Bleachbit.
  4. Lock the Nautilus back again.

    This bug has been present for years. Why don't they fix it? I'm in the middle of a 17 hour copy of 1TB of data to a backup drive (usb 2, portable drive). It's not convenient to log out now. How do I know when the copy has finished?

  • @DrEval Therefore, I use Grsync. It performs incremental copy, so very good for backup and uses checksum for reliability. It has so many other options as well. Nov 1 '17 at 13:55
