That was the reason I wanted to try crossover. My old box has terrible
mount problems. It functions but will not make a fish or Samba
connection. I have need to move a lot of data from the old box. When
finished I will format and fresh install and correct the mounting
problems then. I have about 250gb to transfer, so I need a pretty fast
connection. Do you know if using a crossover is faster than Samba or
fish? If it is, it might be worth the extra trouble. And I am giving
the old computer away after I get the data transferred anyway. Thank
you for the help.
