Copying files to Raspberry Pi from Windows Fails: "No such file or directory"

#1 Post by mbrowne5061 » 2020-07-31 18:05

This is kind of an odd one. I am setting up my raspberry pi to host some media on the network, and things were transferring smoothly, now everything results in an error - but not everything results in a failure. Things were running smoothly, then stopped randomly. If I try to transfer anything over a few KB, I get the "no such file or directory error", and nothing transfers. When I tried transferring a few test plaintext files, I still got the error, but they transferred just fine - I could open them on the pi, and their contents were seemingly intact.

Here is an excerpt from the log:

Code: Select all

Command:	put "F:\Completed Downloads\The Expanse S01-02 BR 10bit hevc-d3g\The Expanse S02 BR 10bit hevc-d3g\The.Expanse.S02E12.The.Monster.and.the.Rocket.BluRay.10Bit.1080p.DD5.1.H265-d3g.mkv" "/media/seagate12TB/Downloads/Completed/The Expanse S01-02 BR 10bit hevc-d3g/The Expanse S02 BR 10bit hevc-d3g/The.Expanse.S02E12.The.Monster.and.the.Rocket.BluRay.10Bit.1080p.DD5.1.H265-d3g.mkv"

I didn't paste the whole thing over because the error is exactly the same for all transfer attempts, even for the plaintext test files. Any thoughts?

Depending on the target's storage filesystem, the remote paths could be too long. Can you try with a much shorter path?

Length in terms of folder depth, or character count?

It did transfer about half a files at this folder depth, so I don't think it would be that. But if you mean character count, that could be a possibility. I'll need to analyze what successfully transferred VS. what failed.

Character count. Limit is usually at ~260 characters for the whole path.
