    Hello!

    Is there any way to read SFS/02 partitions under MorphOS? I don't mind if it's a hack or dangerous as I won't be storing critical data on that drive anyway, just something that'll let me have a partition bigger than 128gb (as the SFS/00 limit - which, in reality, is even less, about 100gb) and I'll be able to access it from the OS4 side. Thanks in advance!

    EDIT:

    I just saw there was a version for 68k, SFS 2.3 which is nowhere to be found any more(?!?). Anyone has it and is kind enough to send it?

    I think it's SFS 1.279 for m68k you're searching for.

    Sadly, sfs 1.279 aka sfs\00 does not support big partitions (>128gb) or big files (>4gb). That's why I'm hunting that sfs2 2.3 version for 68k which - in theory - should work fine. The problem is, there's nowhere to be found :/ But maybe someone here has it stored somewhere from back then?

    From the ReadMe of SFS 1.277:

    "The size of a file is limited to about 4 GB (DOSType 'SFS\0', several TB with DOSType 'SFS\2')."
    "Supports partitions of up to 128 GB (DOSType 'SFS\0', for 'SFS\2' partitions the limit is 1 TB, but it can be more depending on the blocksize, with 32KB/Block it's 64 TB)."

    @Andreas
    hmmmm, I'll try it, but I think I had in the past and didn't work, thx for the heads up :)

    @jacad
    but that's read-only from the OS4 side, am I wrong?

    Big file support in SFS2 wont work. 64bit DOS systems are incompatible in MorphOS and OS4.
    1 + 1 = 3 with very large values of 1

    ah! I see! I think I had successfully used jxfs under OS4 with big files at some point and I thought I could with sfs2 as well. But I could still use big (>128gb) partitions, right? thx!

    That's too bad. Using OS4's SFS under MorphOS is asking for trouble on the other hand. Use Fat then :)

    Well, i never had no problem with SFS2 and it was to only way to use paritions bigger 127GB before icefs appeard.
    I only use it on partitions that have to be that big...

    thx all for your help :)

    @digiman
    did you use sfs2 2.3 or as Andreas suggested 1.279 with sfs\02 mask?

    Using 128GB+ partition should be still fine. Large files are not really problem either. It is just that applications can not access files beyond 2GB limit.

    @vulture:
    I am using Jörg Strohmeyer SFS/2 on the partitions which
    require 127gb+
