In general I love 2.04 and the manuals are a quantum leap from what has
been included before in terms of AmigaDos documentation. However one
point has confused me from the very beginning so I'd like a clarification:
I would like to have my Hard drives both formatted under the 2.04 ROM
version of the fastfilesystem. I formatted them with the TCUtils program
while running the 2.04 ROMS. However, they didn't seem much faster this
way and they are still readable and writable if I boot under 1.3 ROMs.
My understanding was that a true 2.04 FFS would not be usable under 1.3.
Other facts I can discern:
Version DH0: return the value 37.26
"inf" returns type FFS (not surprising)
Still read/writable under WB/KS 1.3
Still boots if FastFileSystem is not contained in L:
Also, while we're on the topic, are the default values in the TCUtils
program which the manual describes as "Optimum" really still optimum under
2.04? I am running two HD's, one Quantum and one Seagate. If any other
2.04/TrumpCard user has found variations from the defaults which increase
throughput, please let me know.
