[Bug 1487546] Re: Newly copied files report zero (0) file size


Thank you for your bug report. It could be fixed with 2.24.2 which has been uploaded to wily today (but is not accepted yet) which includes this bugfix

would be nice to test with that version once it builds

  Newly copied files report zero (0) file size

Status in gvfs package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  1) Boot into the standard Ubuntu session.
  2) Connect an MTP device (I've used HTC One M8 and Tesco Hudl, although both required a udev rule entry to get them to mount automatically)
  3) Copy a file to the device using `cp` in a terminal (not Nautilus).
  4) Check it's size, it reads zero.
  5) Check size in a Nautilus, it reads zero.
  6) Unmount the device in Nautilus.
  7) Remount the device in Nautilus.
  8) Check file size again, it will be correct.

  Copying files using Nautilus appears to work properly, but this
  excludes the use of a wide range of utilities, such as `cp`, `rsync`
  and the like. This may be a gvfs-fuse issue or gvfs-backend issue,
  feel free to change, I wasn't sure.
