Also there d...

Re: Extremely Slow Pi SFTP Server

After further looking, I can see even with the FTP transfer, and a local transfer over the LAN, CPU struggled to get over 20% and RAM was sat around 60%, when LAN had finished, it was idling around 8% CPU and around 40% RAM.

I am lost as to why this is so slow... Any further ideas?

Re: Extremely Slow Pi SFTP Server

That was just accessing the internal IP address on my LAN and copying them across (using Samba as the internal N...

Re: Shell script won't run just edit

Primarily because this was the "test" phase of familiarizing and improving my ability to write scripts. The next step would be to take the contents of this known working batch file, rename it, and change the content to be, for example: sudo mount /dev/sda2 /pi/home/USBDrive sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /pi/...

Re: Virtualise an SD Card instance on PC

this is what I was thinking, the architecture emulation of QEMU is good, but it lacked the SD, likewise Virtualbox and such like has the emulation options and could run the SD but not the architecture.

Nevermind, I achieved my goals in the end.
