I have some problem transferring a Windows 2000 COW image file created on one Fedora Core 2 machine to a 2nd one via sftp because the target file gets inflated to the full size. The source file was about 700 MB, the target file would have been 6 GB. Does anybody know how to avoid this unpleasant effect? Thanks in advance for any helpful comment!
Hi Joachim,Can't you use tar and/or bzip2 to compress it first? (That's how people distribute the COW files on the web, so I imagine there is some tar switch to use?)
