Fixed: L3 Econet File Server Crash

Post by KenLowe » Sun Aug 30, 2020 6:52 pm


I'm running a L3 econet file server, and have run into an issue trying to copy a large file over from my SCSI ADFS drive. I get the following error, which crashes the server:

Code: Select all

FS Internal error #FA at address 550E
I'm using LOGCOPY to copy a folder from my ADFS drive, and it fails when it gets to a 'DATA' file that is approximately 160kb in size.
I've got a second folder that has an almost identical set of files, but with a smaller 'DATA' file (approx 92kb), and that whole folder copies fine.

Any idea what might be going wrong? Is there a limit to the size of files that can be stored on the Econet server?

More details here:


Edit: Sorted. Looks like LogCopy is a bit buggy. I used CopyFiles instead, and that copied everything without issue.
