Hallo Matthew, > That's why it might be easier just > doing everything a track at a time for very large files. There is one eeny teeny problem. The moment I save a file, the drive has no idea of the size of the file to be received. So how should it know wether to reserve a track or a sector? But I must admit that reserving complete tracks makes sense when creating images or formatting a disk/partition: the size is known on forehand and thus can be acted on it. And I can free the sectors of the very last track not needed at the end of the operation. I don't have to change anything to my FS as a BAM-unit is a track. ___ / __|__ / / |_/ Groetjes, Ruud \ \__|_\ \___| http://Ruud.C64.org Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
