Description Jarkko Haapalainen 2003-12-19 16:06:33 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.1.94)
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages
Compiler:          gcc version 3.2.3 20030422 (Gentoo Linux 1.4 3.2.3-r3, propolice) 
OS:          Linux

Started to transfer about 4,2Gb file from windows/ntfs partition to vfat partition. After ~2Gb transferred file size in window changed to ~16,777,216.0 TB.

Maybe this is vfat filesystem issue, i don't know but i guess you should now about this "minor" (?) bug.

Here is screenshot about this: http://tols17.oulu.fi/~jhaapala/kde3.2beta2/filetransfer1.jpg
Comment 1 Thiago Macieira 2003-12-19 17:39:07 UTC
Most surely a 32- and 64-bit mixup. There are a lot of reports in the bug tracking system of things like this, but they are very hard to identify.
Comment 2 Thiago Macieira 2003-12-25 05:59:38 UTC
To the reporter: do you get this only on ntfs -> vfat transfer, or do you get it in many other situations?
Comment 3 Jarkko Haapalainen 2003-12-26 14:58:15 UTC
More testing on this.. ntfs -> reiserfs and reiserfs -> reiserfs with same results. And after ~4Gb the progress bar started from the start (0%) and also other calculations: 0mb of 16..TB, 130mb of 16..TB and so on.

So there is a problem. File transfer is okay/successful.

works for me. I transferred a 3GB file from reiserfs to FAT32 and didn't have a problem with the filesizes being wrong.
Comment 7 Andre Eisenbach 2004-02-27 11:44:39 UTC
This bug is *not* fixed in KDE 3.2. The problem still occurs. Screenshot upon request.
Comment 8 Michael Jahn 2004-07-16 12:11:46 UTC
I am reopening this. I just experienced this with HEAD. Copying a 4GB file via SMB from Windows XP to ~ results in the described behaviour at 2GB. 
samba (with libsmbclient) 3.0.4

the PNG is corrupted. And smb:/ is a different bug - fixed too
Comment 11 Nicolas Ternisien 2006-11-13 22:11:57 UTC
As you can see in the screenshot, the bug still happens.

This time, it's a smb:// copy that displays this kind of huge file size.

Same bug for me copying a 3.7 Go file with KDE 3.5.5 / openSuSE 10.2 / kernel
FROM : samba on reiserfs  
TO : local on ext3

Screenshot of reiser->reiser file transfer

Attached a screen shot showing a successful transfer of a 3.9 Gig file locally,
reiserfs3 to reiserfs3, on KDE 3.5.5 (Gentoo).

Transfering 3.9G File over SMB to local reiserfs

This screenshot clearly shows the bug still exists in 3.5.5 for samba->local
file transfer.

This bug is confirmed.

This bug exhibits itself using KFTPGrabber as well which should remove the FS specificity of it. The only thing to note is that it appears to be triggered well before 2GB of data, even 10-15MB triggers it for me. Could it be related to filecount as well ? It appears that the total filesize is miscalculated and as a result when the "data left to transfer" hits 0KB of data left, yet there is still more data to transfer, it drops into the 16'777'216.0 TB.
Screenshot also available on request.

Comment 17 FiNeX 2009-09-14 00:57:25 UTC
All reports about file management mode reported against KDE 3 (konqueror) has been closed: konqueror in KDE 3 is no more developed and mantained. All bugs and wishes which could be interesting for Dolphin in KDE 4 (the new KDE file manager) has been collected into a specific list.

Please try the new file manager before request new features and report bugs.

Before submitting new reports check carefully the already opened KDE/Dolphin reports in order not to add duplicates.

Many thanks.

P.S: I remember about this bug, it has been fixed a couple of years ago.
