Do you still have the ruta_vazdike_cv.doc which made it crash ? If so can you attach it here, or send it to me privately. That would make it easy to fix.
I do still have the file, but I cannot share it, since it is the personal CV of someone who was using my computer.
I was moving a lot of data, however, and I was getting very frequent write errors when copying the data to the USB stick, especially with larger audio and video files. Reformatting the USB stick as ext3 eliminated the errors, but slowed down the process to a crawl.
As you say, with all those read and write errors its likely that it was a nigh unavoidable situation with an underlying unreliable file system.
