I’m trying to investigate something similar but not exactly the same. I’m
using Advantech PC/104 with CompactFlash. After power off, the file that was
last opened for writing (and then close) is corrupted (no matter how long I
wait after writing the file before switching the power off). I have disabled
the Fsys cache but this didn’t change anything. One more thing: this happens
on 486 but not on Pentium with the same CF card.
Something similiar here, too:
Some of the latest written files were complety corrupted, though we
used some 'sync’s and ‘sleep’ before a regular shutdown.
We are using PC/104-boards with 16…32MB CompactFlash.
But our problems seemed to disappear after we modified the
Fsys call in our boot images to
“Fsys -c0M -A”
In fact we never analyzed , whether the disabling of the cache
or the ‘-A’ option did the trick.
BTW: we expierienced this on Pentium boards only.
