Using FFS-DC on hard disks takes up space on the disk, uses more RAM, and makes the already annoying validation process take a lot longer.
Ahh... that explains a few things!

Sounds like I will!

One last question... If I format all my hard disk partitions using SFS, and I boot workbench from a floppy, will the hard disk partitions be visible? Do I need to put SmartFilesystem in the L directory of everything I boot from?

@StevenJGore

To use SFS you just have to use HDToolBox to add the FileSystem to the harddisks RDB. Simply, open the partition view and chose 'Add FileSystem'. You also need to specify the FileSystem to use for your partition.

After that your HD controller should load the FileSystem and mount the drive automatically independent from which media you boot.

If you have multiple controllers I recommend to use the latest HDToolBox that is in OS3.9 BB2.

UPDATE:

I installed SFS 1.214 on my CD32's HD last night. Partitioning, installing SFS in the RDB, formatting, and installation of OS3.9 etc. went perfectly, and everything has been fine since. Goodbye to long validations after crashes! Hopefully I won't look back.

Thanks for everyone's help and advice yesterday!

Steve.

Seems you can somehow live with FFS: I did accidentally delete (format quick) my Games 19 GB partition instead of my backup partition so I got a reason to test Jörg's DiskMonTools in action. I got everything back in about 1.5 hrs. Next time I'll double check what to delete...

I use PFS 3 on my A3000 and A2000 and I have had no problems with it so far. :-)
