Again thanks for your comments, feedback and additional thoughts !
The "Manual" is very little (12xA5 pages) and Win dominated !
Additional explantations is very poor !!
i already wrote to the manufacturer's support and hope to receive some
Let's see what tales they may tell us !!! ;-D
Well, another reason to stay on FAT32 is my environment:
With FAT32 I am able to exchange and share the content between my 3
Primarily: OS/2 Warp 4 containing a big load of data from begin till end
Secondarily: Linux'es, to help me newbie to get all data into Ubuntu and
perhaps other tests
Last: WIN XP PRO, for some data exchange from these SW really not
running either Linux nor OS/2
I am in midst of a "Partition Reorganization" with experimenting the
best configuration for
our future small but optimal st network solution !
There is a thread already and I plan to continue as soon I see it more
come with some more difficult questions to finalize my definite setup !!
