I am attempting to switch a bunch of huge recordsdata from an previous iMac operating OS X Sierra (final supported model) to a Chromebook. Utilizing customary File Sharing (SMB) on the OS X finish and Google’s customary Community File Share app on ChromeOS, I can mount the share, browse recordsdata and begin transferring… however downside is, after 15 minutes, the copy grinds to a halt and the mount turns into completely unresponsive (“An operation is taking too lengthy, do you wish to abort it?”) till I log off and log again in once more.
I believe I am hitting a timeout someplace. Any ideas on what it’s and the place I can change it? For comparability, Microsoft has this checklist of SMB timeouts in Home windows, however that is not terribly useful right here. The copy can also be absurdly sluggish, I handle to get solely round 150 MB throughout earlier than the connection dies regardless that each machines are on the identical native community.
Additionally open to different methods to perform this, though I might prefer to keep away from round-tripping the recordsdata by way of the cloud if I can since we’re speaking gigs and gigs of knowledge right here.
