No I was using SMB1: my mistake.
Now with SMB2, it works, thanks !
If I can ask, what is this restrictions with "Btrfs filesystem aligned"
and "FSCTL_SRV_COPYCHUNK wire request byte offsets and lengths align
to the Btrfs sector-size" ?
Is it a restriction on the server or the client ?
How can I check that I don't have this restriction ?
Thanks for your help !
