Directory caching is a waste of harddrive space, as for international mode, forget it... the only time you might need it if for foreign games and they'll come on international mode dms/adf's anyway
the big (officially a) bonus (but really a drawback) with FFS is the valadation of dodgy partitions, it was ok for upto 540Mb harddrives that were split into 3 or 4 partitions, but on a 2gig partiion it takes bloody ages...
you best bet is SFS, keep a partition empty and unmounted (or it's too tempting) that is equal to you largest partition, just in case sfs naffs up (I had it do it once in 3+ years and then it was my fault)...
I am talking about a real Amiga btw, not Emulated.
Alright, so does anyone know if its possible to convert the filesystem without losing everything or am I stuck?
