I do not remember, but did PFS3 have recovery tools ? If so, will be cool to have aos/mos/aros ports (without limit to 2gb for one file through).

Very welcome news.

I would love to see PFS3 ported to both OS4, AROS and MorphOS.

Yep, PFS3 have all the necessary tools for .. I only hope that it will not jump now to 3 different ports for mos / aos4 and aros. Hope it will somehow one project , which can be used on all the oses and be modulated where is need it to be, to avoid hardcore "only one os" code.

Yes it did. PFSsalv comes to mind. I used many years ago succesfully. There was also the included PFSDoctor but AFAIK it was rather unreliable, as well as DiskSalv 4 (the latter might have been only PFS2, can't really remember).

Sorry about that

But there is a bug in Amigaworld.net such that when I type messages I get white text on a white background. In other words its invisible.

Preview works correctly tho.

@ChaosLord

I don't see it being a bug otherwise it would affect everyone equally irrespective of browser used. Since we don't use CSS to maintain a level of compatibility to old Amiga browsers, it must be some inherent issue with your system or software.

I love this filesystem! I first bought AFS when it was released and even though it was very fast compared to FFS it had bugs that allways destroyed the filesystem. When PFS3 was released, built on AFS I was sceptical first but I wanted the speed back again so I gave it a try and have never been more pleased about a filesystem. It has allways been rock stable and fast. Not a single issue.

IMO it's the best filesystem ever released for AOS. Don't know hos speed are compared to JXFS though but it's at least as fast as SFS.

@Steve

It does affect everyone equally who uses Windoze XP andhas set their background to black and text color to white and and uses Firefox and Under such settings there is only one halfway usable theme for Amigaworld.net. And this theme looks ok on the main site but has this invisible text when writing msgs.

Try it you will see. It is a common bug of many websites that do not set their colors correctly.

Your site is not setting proper colors for the text (or background) depending on how u look at it.

I would prefer a balck background when composing a msg. All this white everyone is blinding me. ow.

@Chaoslord

From what I can see, if you override the site colour settings (by disabling the option that says allow site to pick it own colours), the themes are all exactly the same anyway...no colour, no design, and black background with black text )assuming you set black background with white text), since the text colour seems to be overridden by the text box.

Other than that, each theme is perfectly readable when left to do its job. Admittedly I have always used the green/blue one - I had forgotten that there were 3 others - although the OS4 one changes the interface the most dramatically.

I bought PFS3 and left it unused for months with fears it would wreck my HDs, despite the good reviews. The net was full of stories of people that had awful stories.

One day, I installed it and...IT WAS GREAT!
Very few problems and no more "wait for validation" scenarios.

This was the second best program I bought for my Amiga (first is and always will be DOpusMag!!!).

I bought PFS3 for my a1200/a4000 and it was really great. SFS and JXFS works as good for me on os4 as PFS3 did. Ok there is no discdoctor for the sfs/jxfs but i wouldnt have any use of it anyway as they worked like a charm. I did got some requesters in the early days but nothing lately. I did use pfsdoctor on my classic a couple of times but for the most it worked great.

@Kicko
Sure, SFS and JFS today are fine, but still, all those nice tools like pfsdoctor and other are good to have. Its just feels a bit more "professional" as file system, when it come with all the necessary tools (like ICEfs for morphos lately).

And in end of all, its opensource, so all the camps can works together on one more project, which are cool, and very possible to have in end very stable and pretty modern filesystem.

Was PFS3 a journaling filesystem? Or do you have to manually correct things whenever a glitch occurs? You can't boot an OS4 volume from it (unless someone rewrites SLB).

How could PFS3 be preferable to JXFS, a modern, journaling filesystem that is unlimited in its volume and file size support?

What can you do to PFS3 except try to bring it up to the same level as JXFS? Why would you want to?

Because JXFS not have recover tools, or any "doctor" toolz. So after problem will happens, you will with your bugs alone and data will be lost.

The other moment : PFS3 are open sourced now. What mean, all the ppls can contribute, and even if it will be "just at level as JXFS" - its already cool to have good filesystem, which opensource, which can use aos3/aos4/mos/aros , and what is most important : any coder can contibute to code, and fix bugs .

Not like with case of the JXFS : closed sourced, and no one can do anything with it, even if he want. All that usuall NDA crap and talks with hyperion for the 10 years, just to get access to code.

So as result, for me PFS3 looks better for future. I already see on sourceforge, that Piru already make first version for morphos, fix bugs, add C replacement for asm fucntions, etc. It is pretty cool for me. Later it can be compiler for aos4 with no problems and almost without any changes. But all of this done by morphos-coder , so while we will stack with "why we need that and that" , all the open source realisation will be better than close sourced :)
