In my experience, FFS does not handle crashes well and then if your source partition is using FFS with errors, it could easily crash the system when you are trying to copy files from it.
I am copying the original data from old original scsi HDD (50Mb and 100mb drives) from an A3000, to a `working` drawer on my workbench drive that sits on my PC.
Once all data was copied to the working folder, I attach the larger single drive - also original scsi (1GB)

I tried to format the drive with FFS and without. same problem.

My biggest issue is to get the drive to boot - what am I missing ?
