  * resolution:  fixed =>


 There are two little isues with this patch:

 a) The string for the permision etc error is not really helpful to the
 user: sself.emit('volume-error', _('Input/Output error'), _('Error')) even
 "Error while copying" as the log string suggests would be better - other
 suggestions welcome :)

 b) We only handle the case when we drag a file to a device. In the detail
 view you can copy files as well to devices: journaltoolbox.py
 def _copy_menu_item_activate_cb(self, menu_item, mount):
         model.copy(self._metadata, mount.get_root().get_path())
 I will have a look at how complicated it is to handle that case, too.
