Installing PFS3AIO on Amiga OS3.2
« on: July 28, 2023, 02:32:01 AM »
I used PFS3 in the past on other systems.  I only have FFS partitions under OS3.2 on the current Amiga.  I downloaded PFS3AIO from Aminet but it doesn't include an installer or documentation for install/setup.

Do I just copy the files to L: then add the filesystem in HDToolBox?  What ID should be used?  Any other particulars to be aware of?

Can PSF3AIO be used for boot partitions?

Thanks.

Hi there. Yes PFSAIO can be used on boot partitions, I have it installed on my CF card which I boot from.

I needed to install it on a new drive earlier this week and couldn't remember some of the settings so found the included AmigaGuide doc very useful. I also found this page and the section called "Optional: Use the pfs3 file system" https://johan.driessen.se/posts/Setting-up-a-Compact-Flash-card-with-Classic-Workbench-and-WHDLoad-for-Amiga-600-1200/.

You then need to format the partition so you will lose any existing data.
