I'm using autofs to mount USB drives and SD cards when entering their specified directories (they're FAT formatted, in case that's relevant). When I copy files to the drives, vifm complains: "Error while putting. [path to file]: Failed to setup file permissions". I can choose [i] to ignore this, and the file will be copied just fine.
The reason I think this is a vifm issue is because copying files onto the drive in the command line produces no errors and works ok.
So the nag is irritating but can be [i]gnored, and when copying a number files inside the same directory it's not a real problem. However, when trying to copy a directory with subdirectories, only one subdirectory inside the directory will be copied. This means that much/most of any directory structure you want to copy onto a removable drive has to be done one directory at a time, all the while manually [i]gnoring the nag messages every time.
Is there a way around this?
