Last modified: 2008-08-01 12:22:52 EDT
Description of Problem:
I am using kernel 2.4.9-31. All updates from updates.redhat.com are applied.
After coping files onto the vfat partition (FAT32, Win 98, 800MB) and starting
Norton Disc Doctor (under Windows) shows me lost clusters, crosslinked files.
Before upgrade I was using RH 7.1 with 2.4.9-21 and all was OK.
Also starting dosfsck on partition which (as NDD said) is good i get error
FATs differ but appear to be intact. Use which FAT ?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy files onto vfat partiton
2. Start Windows and start chcecking partition (NDD, Scandisk)
You get lost clusters, croslinked files
Well, guess ;-)
fat didn't actually change between -21 and -31. call me puzzled
