Description

When I tried to expand a .gz file from a read-only USB volume to a directory on the HD there was not an extracted file in the end. No warning either. When I copied the file to the destination and expanded from there, the result was as to be expected the extracted file.

I mounted a FAT32 USB drive read only through a virtual machine, no such problem.

Arnold, can you confirm this issue and provide additional details?

What filesystem was on the USB stick? was it mounted readonly, or did you use a write-protect switch on the USB stick?

Hi Urias,

Had some trouble logging in after this while. The USB stick I used has no protection switch. The filesystem I used, could have been FAT 32 or BeOS/HAIKU. (I guess I reused the stick since opening the ticket) I will try to reproduce this on a recent nightly soon, then report back.

Regards,

Arnold
