Moving very-dense data
Posted on 2009-07-08
So somebody at work thought a NAS would be an ideal solution to their storage problems... except that the NAS itself is suspect to several security vulnerabilties.
Anyway, I'm trying to efficiently move data off the device to a VM. Its not a lot of data (120Gb), however, its very dense. In other words, there are hundreds of thousands, possibly a few millions, of files 1k or less in size. The VM I'm moving it on to is a Windows Sever 2003 box.
The NAS was a cheapy, and so every once in awhile it disconnects, killing the copy job. I can't tell you how frustrating this has become, because I've been copying data for over 24 hours now.
Does anyone have any ideas of how I can copy these over while expecting disconnects? I'm just using copy and paste at the moment.
