Lesson for tonight..
« on: February 18, 2017, 05:23:33 PM »
try and keep away from FFS filesystems to avoid validation issues..  best to stick with PFS or SFS.

note - takes forever to run validation scan with disksalv on a 4GB cf with heaps of directories.  :(

@Jeff doesn't really matter, PFS3 AIO has better salvage tools SFS is a litte bit faster.
I've used both and never ever had a problem with either one.
Amiga is addictive coz it is fun to use

I am pretty sure that most of my Amigas have 20+ year old FFS partitions - EEK

It doesn't matter what file system you use if you don't make backups

Isn't FFS pretty stable with the latest patches?

Good question; I do not know but I believe you are correct as you need a source file to patch.
