But that /almost/ seems reasonable, for that circumstance. What concerns me here; is that this is a fresh partition && newfs. Given the partition spans the entire flash drive. I wouldn't expect there to be any inconsistencies between the 2 records. I'd hate to use the recover option, and have it use wrong results. Why isn't the second table "synced" with the first/primary table? I'd blame it on the flash drive, but it's not limited to just this drive, nor just this box. I have a version 11 box that's some 6mos out, that also does this. Thanks again, for taking the time to reply! --Chris _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
