Fast File System is buggy!

I tried to copy my AmiKit installation with Icaros Desktop 2.2.1 to a Fast File System formatted Partition for usage with Amithlon and it crashed on a delete protected File creating a Validation Error!

JFYI!

Was the delete-protected file on the source or destination drive?

Try to do it on Windows with WinUAE, i have shared HD Amihtlon with WinUAE and also created Dualboot XP/Amihtlon.

DualBoot Amithlon/WinXP/WinUAE

@ncafferkey

The delete protected file was on the Source Drive! And then after trying to override the files Icaros Desktop always crashed with an instant reboot!

Yes, FFS is buggy.

What could users like me do about it:

1. Setting up a bounty for fixing FFS

This sound logical but you can't fix something complicated like a file system, without reproducing the errors. A coder would at least need some 'broken' filesystems for propper error analysis.

2. Setting up a bounty for FFS salvage tools

Maybe if a coder knows how to deal with existing errors, he could try programming a salvage tool for FFS. Something that might help deleting defect files or directories.

3. Switch to a file system from another OS.

Maybe the coders should look for proven file system used on other OSes, like Linux, BSD or MorphOS. This could fix a lot of FS problems and might be necessary for future enhancements of AROS anyway.

@GreenNight

Note that we've been using SFS instead of FFS as our main FS for perhaps a decade or so. FFS is usually only needed for interacting with classic AmigaOS floppies and HDs.
