Hello
i have to copy my Video *.mkv to a local Disk as backup and a new destination VM
the source is a VM the destination will be anther VM on a different Hardware

so i cut and paste the directorys the file inside ist 4.2GiB - a lot's it is possible just to move it, other häng at the end telling they can't write - this is not correct because a empft txt file or the Video Cover will move without problem

i do the copy over my Laptop with Debian and use Dolphin.

why this happen?
why in dolphin i can't create a tar file on the remote VM?

have a nice day

Copy it using terminal and don't do anything until it finishes. Sounds like your hardware isn't powerful enough to handle you doing other tasks while copying large files.
