Now that’s what i call a usb pen drive!!

In Simply Mepis – due to unknown reasons – i was unable to copy a hundred kb sized folder from my pen drive to my desktop. I opened the folder properties and swapped desktops to continue working.


It was only minutes later that i found out that my usb pen drive was actually a LOT bigger than what it should be – or so said Mepis, of course 😉 .

Weird, i guess. I’d never seen an infinite loop bug in a folder size calculation.

Rebooting X didn’t do the trick either, i had to physically reboot my laptop in order to get the damn thing to work. Click for a full view of the screenshot
