I don't know whether it's still the case, but when I did this - on a RiscPC, 4.39 - it was quite happy.nr. wrote:I recently recovered an old 250GB SATA drive from a dead desktop, and hooked it up to the Pi using a USB to SATA cable wotsit. RISC OS sees something like 233GB free, which is encouraging. I've not tried booting from it, !HForm saw it, and formatted it as attached to the SCSI filesystem with no problems.
Yes RISC OS ltd had fixed it a long time ago. I was not sure if it were still a problem with Castle/ROOL versions.Burngate wrote:I don't know whether it's still the case, but when I did this - on a RiscPC, 4.39 - it was quite happy.
!HForm formatted it successfully, and Free said it had 250GB available
Yes Fat32 is faster. But do not use it on RISC OS. There is no reason that FileCore could not be just as fast as FAT32, it just needs a bit of development.Tide wrote:I'm not sure but I think you don't want to do that. The problem with Filecore is, that it's significantly slower than FAT32. Boot however has to be on a Filecore formatted drive. The usual setup on R-Comp's ARMini seems to be a small pen drive for boot and a larger spinning or SSD drive for all your programs and data. The latter would be FAT formatted.
