DiskSalv4 problems

Just got my floppy from Software Hut with DiskSalv4, and can't seem to run it on my machine. Every time I select any of the partitions, choose FFS as file system, and try to do Check, the computer reboots. My FFS is 43.20 version. Is it possible that it won't work with the newer FFS version, or is it something else?

DiskSalv cannot access past the first 4GB of the HDD. So if your partition resides (partially or totally) outside of the first 4GB, then DiskSalv is of no use for you.

I'm running Disksalv V4 R13.6 on OS3.9 (FFS 45.9) without a problem.

Then again I've never tried it on a >4gb partition! Hmmm....now I've got

2x20GB+ partitions

Try doing a check on a FFS floppy and see if it works then maybe try it from
the early startup. (No boot)

If DiskSalv/Quaterback is no good on big drives - what should we use to defragment?

DiskMonTools is the only one that exists - a copy to backup and back again is probably faster...

That's not a problem here though - my disk is only 880Mb total, and the partion I have been trying it on is 260Mb. I guess I'll have to try it with bare load, but for that I have to dig up my 1950 and attach it...
