It is set for SFS02, 1024 Blocksize, 600 Buffers. It is a PATA drive on a USB adaptor.
I think you'll find it is documented that both SFS(2) and JXFS MUST use a blocksize of 512, anything else has undefined behaviour.

I usually use SFS00 (properly), but for this experiment everything is working just fine. I have also tried FAT32,
FAT12, and FFS with various blocksize and buffers. Some faster/better than others. Some........OOPS!
A-Eon A1X1000 ATI HD6850, Creative SB1570 PCIe, RTL8139 net PCI.

Then perhaps MediaToolbox should default to 512 not 1024? :-)

Nope, it is written in pure C, so any knowledgable OS4 dev should be able to adapt it to OS4.
