SFS issue on IcAROS 2.2.1

I had trying to install IcAROS 2.2.1 on a old 4 GB spare usb stick for some experiment. Now I understand that 4 GB are not enough. Now I want tailor it to my needs deleting some unused thing and copying things that weren't already copied, but now here is the problem: the free space is 2 kb. Now I can't delete anything on that key because it's... full! What I can do to delete files and save on install times? Do I need to format that stick and start everything from scratch?

Ok, I did it. I've found some files of 1 kb to delete, so I had at least 3 kb free space shown by DirectoryOpus 4, so now I'm able to delete bigger files. Can this be classified as BUG? Or is this a feature of SFS?

It sounds like a bug alright.

It seems to be down to how much space you have for the .recycled drawer. If you're down to so little space that the thing you're trying to delete cannot be placed into .recycled, you can't delete it. Removing items from .recycled is a solution, but if it's a new install and .recycled is empty that's no help - so as mentioned, you have to start small to make some space and then progress to the bigger files.

It strikes me there are two possible solutions to this:

1 - Instead of copying the file to be deleted straight to .recyled, copy to ram: first and then put in .recycled. This of course would slow down the process and could be an issue with low ram systems (e.g. 68k).

2 - Have a switch in the delete command to block the recycling action for that delete.

Cheers,
Nigel.

I haven't looked at the implementation, but I would have thought that it would simply "move" the file into .recycled, and not require any temporary space to do so.

Indeed, even moving creates some kind of meta data
