SFS replacement on OS 2.0?

I'm trying to install a reliable filesystem on my CF card for my A600, however, SFS will not work on anything lower than OS3.0.

Is there another reliable filesystem that I could use, that runs on a lowly 2.x machine?

You could try an older SFS version which might work on OS2.0. Check here.

Is SFS so much better than FFS?
Which are the main reasons for you to prefer it?

PFS3 but finding it can be difficult... Best feature is DirectSCSI = A600/A1200 IDE max 8G support without any other patches. ("Only" max 8G due to another limit in built-in IDE driver..)

Isn't PFS3 commercial?

Stingray: thanks for that ! You think it's stable? Anybody has experience with this old SFS running on an A600?

I'm surprisded that there was never an attempt to write a freeware Amiga file system which works for all modern PC drives.

What do you mean, Retronerd?
There is a FFS implementation in linux if i remember correctly, but I never tried it.

Will have to try this older SFS.

I meant a freeware file system for Classic Amiga. OS3.5/3.9, IDE-Fix, PFS3... they are all commercial. There are only patches like TD64, right?

SFS with directscsi would be perfect, unfortunately it was removed long time ago

I am using SFS since 1999 (I think) and never had problems with it. I also used v1.58 (the version that might work on 2.0) for more than a year and it worked fine. I didn't ever use it on a 2.xx machine though so I don't know how reliable it is on such systems.

Both links are old. The latest version of SFS by John Hendrikx is http://www.xs4all.nl/~hjohn/SFS184.lha (see directory listing at http://www.xs4all.nl/~hjohn/ ).

I posted links to the old version for a reason. As I am not sure if the latest version on John Hendrikx site still works on 2.0 machines.

I thought that SFS particularly the later versions is 020+ only?

Yup, but Alexh makesa lot of sense, this might be 020+ only! I gotta check...
