#12180 new bug

USB Memory stick can no longer mounted after deleting the hidden files.

Reported by: lalit Owned by: nobody
Priority: normal Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: File Systems/FAT Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:

Platform: All


A sony USB memory stick was working fine. I just deleted the RECYCLED and .files . Now once mounting it is going to the debug mode.

Message is: PANIC: ASSERT FAILED (/home/builder/builds/haiku/src/add-ons/kernel/file_systems/fat/fat.c:444): 0

This memory stick is still working fine in a mac.

It's triggering an assert; it probably means that it managed to corrupt the file system. Using asserts in this scenario is a bug in itself, but apart from that, it should probably silently ignore it (if possible, I'm not all that familiar with FAT), like Mac OS X does.

In any case, repairing the file system should make the problem go away.

I reformatted the stick and its working now. I just informed you to help in making the OS more stable. The problem occurs only by deleting the files.
