GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 474516
Directory size not updated while copying
Last modified: 2018-08-03 17:52:22 UTC
Please describe the problem:
I copy a directory from one disk to the other. It takes a while as files are rather big. During copying operation I want to estimate the progress, so I tape SPACE on the directory (hence selecting the directory and displaying its size).
The problem is that the size is not updated when I tap SPACE once (or twice) again.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Start copying files (it should take some time)
2. Tap SPACE on the destination dir
3. Repeat step 2. a few times
4. Tap CTRL+R to refresh the directory listing
5. Repeat step 2. a few times
6. Enter inside and outside the destination directory
after 2. the size of directory is X
after 3. the size of directory is still X
after 5. the size of directory is still X
after 6. the size of directory is Y > X
after 5. the size of directory is Y > X
after 3. the size of directory is X2 > X
after 5. the size of directory is X3 > X2 > X
Does this happen every time?
Basically I can confirm this behavior still in version 1.4.1 of GNOME Commander. For estimating the time of copying the copy window exists in GCMD. This means there should be no need to press SPACE all the time.
The updating process itself might be a problem of gnome-vfs and might be solved when switching to gvfs. Therefore I'm leaving this bug open.
