    The other night I was using a WinXP machine and moving a bunch of folders between the two hard disks connected to the NSLU2. The source one was ext3 format, and the destination FAT32. These were large files - 650MB CD-Rom ISO images.

    After I’d initiated the movement of a large group of folders, and after a few of them had made the move successfully I realised that the folder I was moving to was not the one I wanted, and hit ‘cancel’ on the WinXP file moving dialog box. The movement was cancelled as I wanted. HOWEVER, while the files that had been moved completely were still present in the destination, to my horror, the folders that hadn’t been moved yet were gone! :sad:. It was as if the NSLU2’s SAMBA implementation considered the entire move successful, and deleted the source folders. :(

    Anyone else experienced this?

    I ran an NSLU2 scandisk on the ext3 partition afterward, but it claimed nothing was wrong. :cry:
