Semaphore Timeout issue while copying large files to mapped drives

While copying files greater than 40mb(approx) to the mapped drive semaphore timeout error is thrown. The "try again" option in the error throws the same error. At times when "try again" is done it also gives error message "Can not read from source disk". Once "cancel" is done the file shows in the mapped drive but is obviously corrupted and does show some mb in size (may be whatever amount of data that got transferred).

In the previous version of eldos 2.5 we faced the same issue.

Even setting the Timeout parameter to "0" in MountMedia() did not solve the problem.

Will CallbackFileSystem.ResetTimeout help in anyways?

Let us know if you could provide us with some solution or some sample application which will help us solve the issue.

here is what i did.

each datablocks, usually of the size 64kb, are stored asynchronously in the background. and the thread calling the write callback is blocked until the whole block is finished with uploading. but i do get a notifications for upload progress and in that eventhandling i call "CallbackFileSystem.ResetTimeout".
but be careful with blocking this thread, since this can stop the explorer from working...
if you use c# always specify a reasonable timeout for waiting on a lock.

or you can upload the datablock asynchronously in the background and return immediately from the writecallback. this should work without "CallbackFileSystem.ResetTimeout".

hope that helps
