It does not write into "thin air" but onto an "inode" of the file systems. That your directory entry does not point to the "inode", the application is writing to, it not the applications fault -- but almost surely yours... >Even having a backup of the Data.fs would not help! >Not picking on zope, but if that's what's happening it has to be >called a bug. A bug is a behaviour different from the promissed/documented one. You should read the documentation for your filesystem: you will learn about "inode"s and "directory entries" and that the deletion of a "directory entry" does not necessarily remove the "inode" it points to. That's a feature -- documented -- and therefore not a bug. -- Dieter _______________________________________________ For more information about ZODB, see the ZODB Wiki: http://www.zope.org/Wikis/ZODB/ ZODB-Dev mailing list - ZODB-Dev@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zodb-dev
