Shifting Share Folders Problem

    When multiple USB drives are connected (via a USB hub), disconnecting the drive using share folder FAT_1, will result in a remaining drive being shifted from FAT_2 to FAT_1.

    This results in problems for machines with existing shared access to FAT_2 or machines ftp'ing to /FAT_2/.

    This problem was noticed using thibor 17r3.

    You should be getting the volume label rather than FAT#

    There is a problem in the dosfsck utility in the linksys kit that prevents it from finding FAT volume labels when the FAT is larger than 64K sectors in size (in most cases this means fat32 partitions larger than 256MB).

    I created a patch for dosfsck a while back - http://www.hyperwrt.org/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=9737#p9737 - perhaps it didn't make it into Thibor's build.
