Thanks Tommaso i didn't know, I'll use it on AROS One 68k where i use PFSAio, it's much faster than the other File Systems.

On AROS one 68k I don't use SFS anymore because I found some strange behaviors

- On the "Workbench" the moved file is not deleted
- The single icon "on Workbench" cannot be deleted or copied
- Always on "Workbench" a file can not be renamed from uppercase to lowercase and vice versa, message ... file already present, this unfortunately also happens with PFS, problems already reported to AROS staff.

That explains why I had to install the OS 3.2.1 update twice! Thanks you!

No, it's not ROMable, and the proper way how to integrate it is to make it a feature of the FFS.

PFS3 (including original PFS3) automatically adds reset handler that flushes buffers.

Then DiskSafe would be redundant with PFS3AIO?

But obviously it does not work. Or it does not flush the right buffers.

Edit S:User-Startup, save, reset -> changes are lost.

The same procedure with DiskSafe active -> changes are saved.

Just a data point, but it seems to work fine for me with latest PFS3 (and no DiskSafe). WB 40.42/KS 39.106 on a 1260 with a normal 3.5" IDE drive.

I can't find anything wrong with reset handler implementation in pfs3aio. It calls UpdateDisk() which does all the flushing stuff (ACTION_FLUSH does same) and finally it calls CMD_UPDATE and TD_MOTOR=0 and then exits reset handler.

Unless DiskSafe does something more.
