thank you for letting us now about possible NTFS probs.
The key matter is that NTFS is a proprietary file system of Microsoft. Its original design was never revealed (as opposed to free and open software standards). Instead, Paragon & Co. had to re-design their drivers by reverse engineering. So, I'd blame the Redmond monopoly in the first place.
Being aware of this, I stuck to vFAT until recently, when I got my first >4Gig files - and a new built in 4TB HDD...
First, I tried to use ext3 (as I prefer Linux over Windows on my PC as well), but recent fw versions mounted ext3 partitions just read-only.
If there is an increasing number of flaws observed with alternative NTFS drivers, one could ascribe this to
1. increasing size and amount of files combined with increasing sizes of partitions (probably never tested, like y2k bug)
2. statistical reasons (more bytes more bugs)
3. maybe outdated versions of mimicry drivers...
After data loss, it is hard to file bug reports against ntfs-3g or ufsd (which is used in my mede8er), but still your observations should be reported to Paragon and the developers there, I believe.
Now, I regret having chosen ntfs over ext3 and hope being able to switch back some day.
Normally, I copy files using "cp -a" (missing -u and rsync though)...
I will try to understand what your files are meant for - and make the best from them.
Always interested in sh scripts or even extended chroot environments (incl. rsync or even mc?)...
Thank a million - and Mede8er rules!
I got the ntfs-3g driver running on the mede8ter, however i am not really into testing this since i already run the ext3 mod and i am not going to convert
Anybody interested in the files to do some testing with it? You need te be able to write a basic sh script and to be able to do linux shell script to get this running.
/Edit: i post script and files in the plugondevice
Yes, interested. Sorry, I posted my reply in the new thread.
