If you can now copy files back to the partition, you've done nothing wrong.

If you can't, the partition needs a session with HDToolbox,

I would try adding then updating the filesystem, using the filesytem (updated version) that Castellan posted.

Then rebooting and trying to format the partition.

I have downloaded pfs3aio.lha, where abouts do I place the file or how do I use it?

Many thanks

How did you prep your hard drive and install PFS initially? The procedure is virtually the same.
The summary version is:
1. Extract pfs3aio.lha
2. Copy pfs3aio to L:
3. Open HDToolbox
4. In the partitioning screen, choose Add/Update Filesystem
5. Select the existing PFS, choose Update
6. Select L:pfs3aio
7. Save changes and reboot.

The details will vary slightly depending on your OS version. There may be other things you need to adjust, e.g., DOSType, but hopefully not. Either way, it sounds like you're not very familiar with this kind of procedure, in which case you should make absolutely sure that you have a full drive backup in case something goes wrong.

This is a rather dated video of setting up a drive from scratch, more than what you are trying to do here;-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckL5xYQjqLo

The relevant part of changing the filesystem on a drive, is about 3 minutes 20 seconds into the video.

The thing is that the old version of PFs filesystem on the drive is rather buggy with the 3.14 scsi.device (you don't have to do that bit, just the filesystem on the one partition).

This makes any data on that partition unreadable and you have to format the drive (which is what you are trying to do).

The filesystem written to a hard drive partition is like an interpretation and "method list" of code for doing things like copying and deleting files and formatting disks. If it becomes corrupt or obsolete with a version of scsi.device, then it has to be replaced.

Remember the limits, the limit is about 100GB for that particular filesystem. I doubt you'll need to change anything else but that filesystem to be able to go on and format the partition.
