#50 closed defect (fixed)

Moving massive amounts of files via drap&drop eventually fails

Reported by: Gregg Young Owned by: Steven Levine
Priority: major Milestone: Release_3.5.9
Component: fm/2 base Version: 3.05
Keywords: hangs Cc: strrom@…


When moving massive amounts of files from one area to another, eventually, (100% of the time), it will stop doing the job. Normally I will highlight the files that I want moved, dragndrop them on the directory I want them to and select "Move" from the resulting popup window. Eventually, nothing happens after I click the move button with no resulting error code. I must add that while this method no longer works I CAN highlight all my files, click the "Move" button in the menu bar, select the necessary drive/dir in the dialog window and move that way just fine but, that quickly gets tiresome

Since fm/2 is not hung, it is more likely the problem is leaking resources that the kernel can't recover on a normal app shutdown. This can happen for GUI resources. They are created by the app but can end up owned by PM and PM is supposed to release these resources when the app exits. I've been told there are cases where this does not occur. Since there's no way to restart PM these resources will not be recovered without a reboot.

I wasn't able to produce this failure. What I did notice is that if "immediate updates" is NOT checked in the notebook setup, it is hard to tell if FM/2 is doing anything. The container doesn't start populating with files. The CPU shows very little activity. However, if I watch my harddrive light, I can tell the move process is still being carried out. Once my harddrive light is out, I do a recan and the files have been moved to the desire partition.
