Re: Backup file errors.
- Some further info, but with the same results.
I ran chkdsk on the FAT32 drive from a windows machine, no errors.
I flashed 6.8 to the slug, unslung to a flash drive as Disk 2,
connected the FAT32 drive to Disk 1 and ran SyncBack with hashing
enabled. 3 files were reported different between the FAT32 drive and
the XP NTFS source drive. Synced the three files. Ran SyncBack again
and five different files reported differences. I did not sync the
five files. During the comparison, 3150 files totaling 1.5gb are
downloaded from the slug at a peak rate of about 3mB / sec. The slug
appears the freeze during this process, as IP traffic stopped several
times for a period of about a minute.
Again, after reflashing with R63, no differences were reported, not
even the five files reported under 6.8, and the slug did not appear to
