I have the same problem since yesterday's update to 4.17.6. Sudden freeze during file copy, have to hard reset every time.

Try rebooting to older kernel - I'm using 4.17.4 now and so far no problem!

System details:

  • desktop i7-7000K, 32G RAM, no swap, F28 Workstation 4.17.6-200.fc28.x86_64

A complete freeze occures at random point during copying multiple 300-600M files between internal SATA drives. The desktop is fairly old and worked since F25 without any issues so I don't think it is hardware-related or swap-related.

  • laptop HP ProBook 450 G5-3DN88ES, i7-8550U, 16G RAM, no swap, F28 Cinnamon 4.17.6-200.fc28.x86_64

A complete freeze occures at random point during copying multiple 500-4000M files between external USB drive and internal SATA drive.

I did not help to boot to an older kernel does not work :((tried 4.17.4 to no avail). I can only think of reinstalling F28 or maybe even F27 to see if it helps.
