Thank you

Anyone else who has been using PFS without a problem (for years preferably)? Also, there are different versions. Should I use the newest?

I've been using PFS since PFS2 was published and upgraded to PFS3 as soon as it became available. I also wrote the tool PFSSalv.

PFS is incredibly fast compared to FFS, especially when used on the boot partition, and also faster than SFS.

PFS2 from time to time rises a block id error. This is similar to and has the same effect as a checksum error for FFS: the partition remains write protected. But I could always fix it with the tools which are supplied with the product (removedirentry and diskcheck) without reformatting.

PFS3 was similar until the latest updates came out. Since then I never had any problem with it any more.

Sounds good

I assume you mean the update from PSF3 V5.1 toV5.3?

Yes. On the homepage they call it PFS3.3 (internal V18.5), but it's the same archive (the links point to Aminet).

Cool, thanks

I'll give PFS a try for sure. It's a shame that SFS is still in BETA stage. I wonder if anyone is working on it again?

Unfortunately the current _active_ author Jörg Strohmayer is a bit of a "Mad Scientist" type of person. Brilliant when he wants to be, but totally bonkers other times. With a passionate hatred of MorphOS.

He was granted a no-restriction license to continuing development on SFS which means that he does not have to disclose the source to his modifications.

The original author of SFS John Hendrikx has since released the source of his last version v1.84 as GPL available to everyone but the improvements over the last 10 years upto 1.279 by Jörg are now undoubtedly "lost" at the source code level to all but him

The problem now is that I can't seem to update PFS with the patches, because the version of the original files is incorrect: 18.3. This seems to be correct, but spatch still doesn't want to patch it. Also, the patch installer asks for the PSF2 cd, which I don't have. Any pointers as to why spatch can't patch the 18.3 files?
