How long does SFS take to format?


I've just been following KG's SFS guide and have started the format process on DH0: around 10-15 minutes ago (latest WinUAE / Original Amiga HD).

The process window came up - I pressed enter now the partition has been renamed and seems accessible but the window is still there.

Is this normal? Do I just close it and move to the next? How long should I wait?

SFS should initialize in less than a second. That the window stays open is definitely a bug somewhere.

It did seem to do it straight away (i.e. the drive changed from DH0:NDOS to System) and I could access it. Closed the Window now and everything looks okay.

Definately a bug I guess.
