As you might already have understood, Freenet will continue to function perfectly fine if the computer is restarted during datastore maintenance. We do however advise users to avoid restarting Freenet while the maintenance is in progress, as Freenet would have to do all the work all over again on a restart. Note that Freenet provides this warning on every platform, including Windows. Also note that we have no control over how often a machine (or operating system) has to be restarted.
In case the presence of the notification is bothering you, please avoid looking at it. If you believe you see the notification in error, e.g. in cases where it should not be displayed, or in case you have constructive ideas on how to improve the current situation, then please file a bug at the bug tracker . – Bert  https://bugs.freenetproject.org/ On Wed, Jan 14, 2015 at 10:13 AM, Jim Whitney <jwhit...@dwarfisland.com> wrote: > Datastore(PUBKEY-cache) maintenance in progress: 445568/502974.
