I know it's geeky, but I just spent my lunch break browsing the code starting from the given link. I see there are old RCS tags in many files, such as 'boot.c'. Since it is under SVN(?) now, I assume those are obsolete, but I always found it helpful to include text descriptions of changes. Vewing the source using 'annotate' lets you view the changes, but is there a way to have that included in the file when downloaded?

As a Minimig owner with the arm addon board for HD support I too would also like to see continued support for a basic 68000 CPU.

I would also like to see a support for using less buffers like FFS so it can be used on a 1.5MB Amiga such as a unexpanded minimig or my old A500 HD system which also has less than 2MB of RAM. I know it will be slower with less buffers but it should still hopefully be faster than FFS.

When putting it on the sourceforge SVN I decided not to bother with even trying to convert the old RCS repository, but yes, I still do have it.

Well I have it up and running on my A4000 and it works like a dream. I partitioned a 80GB drive as 2x40GB, copied the data off my old SFS drives and when I've finished backing up the data then I'll reformat the other drives as PFS.

Thanks very much.

Note: I had been getting some issues with my large partition SFS drives with regards to checksum errors. I wasn't sure if it was the drives, SFS or my FastATA4000 combined with the Mediator, but so far everything is perfect.

@Michiel & @Piru

A friend of Michiel Pelt (PFS3 author) said to me few weeks ago that he found a bug :

'By the way... pfs3 progress is slow, we found a bug in it at the 4gb disksize threshold. We are working on it'


It's fixed ?

Well, depends on if he talks about these bugs:
https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?fun...1&atid=2163215
https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?fun...1&atid=2163215

I don't know of any "4gb disksize threshold" bug, but these are the closest. They're related to large filesystem (needing superindex blocks) and not 4GB disksize limit, though.

just wondering if there has been any progress made with partition sizes, AROS intergration etc. There is very little to be found on sourceforge

Just went through the sourceforge pages and the last progress seems to be from 1.3.2012(?). Is there chances for fixed PFS3 to see daylight on 68k?

@Bamiga2002 Have you tried the updated 68K version on aminet? http://aminet.net/package/disk/misc/pfs3ks13

No haven't tried it yet...but isn't it for kick 1.3 so would it work on kick 3.x anyway? Now I have the 18.5 version 060-optimized.

It works on my my kickstart2 A600, so no reason why it wouldn't work on 3.0/3.1.

I have build pfs3 from the latest svn. Needed some time for testing. I've just put some stuff in a package. Maybe I'll update it later in the week. Shame the progress class includes are nowhere to be found, so pfsdoctor can't be built.

I put the latest pfs3ks13 to me RDB replacing the original one and it's working so far . But can I use PFSDoctor with this version?
