Re: Using SFS/00 on system partition after many years of FFS with long filenames

After os4.1.2, I did some backup speed tests to both FFS2 & SFS partitions.

SYS partition is 245Mb with 741 directories & 8533 files on a SFS partition.

Copy all to a FFS2 partition took 9 min (540 sec), same files to a SFS directory took 39 sec, almost 14 times faster.

I'll take my chances with SFS. PartitionWizard will tell you if a SFS partition is corrupt, but I've found I just need to copy everything to a blank partition, re-format, & copy back without loosing any files. Doesn't happen enough to worry about if you make regular backups.
