Re: usb 16go key copy problem on SAM and AOS4.1 U1 (now)

Darnit! I just tripped over this again by accident!

I had a large directory of stuff on my 16GB DataTraveller USB stick. I copied it to my Sam's HD. I didn't like the name, so I renamed... the wrong one! I accidentally renamed the one on the USB stick.

The result: The direcory disappeared! But the space on the stick was not freed. So it was not deleted, just the directory entry was lost.

Good thing I had a copy.

I copied the rest of what I wanted saved to my Sam, and then reformatted the stick on a WinXP box.

I wish this stick had a write-protect tab that I could set before plugging it into my Sam!

BTW, I have been using a FAT formatted 16MB (yes, megabyte) CompactFlash card to xfer files back to the Windows box, and that has worked so far. Maybe this really is some issue with media size.
