Review request for kdelibs and David Faure.


I've explained how to check possible file corruptions.


This simple patch allows file copy to external devices to be synchronous. This patch assumes that external devices are mounted on a subdirectory of /media/. If /media/ is not used this patch will not work so everything will be as before.

Testing (updated)

This patch is recent, so I'm testing it right now. kio-file is a critical component so I will do more tests.

Checking for file corruption might be a good idea:
dd if=/dev/full of=testFile count=numOfBlocks
md5sum testFile
Copy it, umount, mount and check the md5sum.
