Is SDFS considered stable on Windows? I'm currently doing a test to see if it's viable for reliably storing large amounts of deduplicable data, but so far things are not going well.
I just installed the latest version of SDFS on my Windows 10 machine (Note that the latest Windows install contains 3.7.8, which I don't believe is the latest) and I'm seeing some major stability issues.
Here are the main issues I've found so far:
1. I copied some files from one drive into my SDFS drive and the SDFS copies showed as Folders instead of files! I believe that this is a problem with SDFS misinterpreting file attributes, as when I removed all file attributes from the source files they then showed up correctly in SDFS.
2. If I view my SDFS drive in Explorer, then right click and select "New -> Text Document" I get a "Catastrophic Error"!
3. Sometimes add or remove files to my SDFS drive and they do not show up in Explorer until I manually refresh. For other (Non SDFS) drives any updates are displayed in explorer automatically.
4. This is the big one. I opened an Admin command prompt and attempted to copy a folder from one drive to my SDFS drive. The files started copying normally for a few seconds and then the machine Blue Screened:
Now I can't mount my SDFS drive, as shown below:
Any ideas on how to recover the data? And any ideas on why I'm seeing these problems?
