Bug#354654: general: fat32 gets corrupted
Since I have the need to continue to work with my machine1, I finally did an
apt-get dist-upgrade for machine1, and installed debian kernel 2.6.15-1-686.
I erased fat32 partition and replaced it by a ext2 and give access to it from
windows using fs-driver. I will see if problems are still present (if I
continue to loose directories).
In machine2 I will also upgrade the kernel but without erasing the fat32, to
have a chance to see if the problems comes from the kernel. I will also
remove hdparm from machine2, if the kernel is not the problem.
I will let you know what are the results in the coming weeks, because if it is
a bug it worth to be reported.
All the best,
