A file is routinely corrupt after shutdown
|Reported by:||donn||Owned by:||axeld|
I have a file that will be corrupt 9 times out of 10, after reboot.
It's a 200Kb application cache, that may be written several times during a session. I copy the file before I shut down. On the next boot, the copy is fine, but the original is usually corrupt. The invalid data is random blocks of data from other applications, commonly Firefox, and the boundary between valid and invalid data is at multiples of 4096.
I'm at hrev28263, but it has been going on for a while. I thought this might be interesting because it's so repeatable (on my computer), and so weirdly specific to this file. I would be happy to add logging or gather other information that might be useful.
