winuae 0.8.22 R2 Hardfiles problems

Hi there!

I've tried to load from the Hardfiles menu 3 old harddisk files i did & that i used till the last version...1 for hd0, 1 for hd1, 1 as backup hd..

Actually when i try to load them i get the error message "HARDFILE NOT FOUND".....
Even tried to set to 0 the "surfaces", "reserved" & the "sector" option....nothin' to do...

Now i don't wanna format other 3 hardfiles & mess up with the old ones to move the files from the old to new hdf files....solutions?

Or better get a partition, format it under Amiga ffs & move all inside using an old version of winuae?

Thanks for the help

I think this is a bug in the latest version. I had exactly the same problems!
I found a workaround though.
Create a default profile WITHOUT any hardfiles.
Create other profiles WITH hardfiles.
Then when the WinUAE GUI comes up, choose a profile with hardfile, and WinUAE runs fine!
(The default profile is loaded automatically, and then hardfiles are opened. I think that WinUAE forgets to free these hardfiles. When a new profile is loaded, these files are then reported as "being in use" by the system...)

Good luck!
