btw, to "refresh" on mac why not just copy files off the disk and then copy them back.

this way you can also make sure that file are all still readable, and "refresh" the whole disk by reformatting it, move files away from faulty sectors and eventually delete tons of old crap which you dont need anymore. :)

in osx there is a "list of open files" which doesnt make a difference between executables, documents and for examples disk images (you may have seen that before when putting a file from a toast image or dmg into the trash and attempt to empty it)

in OS9 i think it is different, there must be something like a "process watcher".

next time you see this, check what system profiler & co say about currently running processes.

it should (i.e. unless something went really, really wrong) imply that the MacOS thinks the app is still open.

i have seen that once, but cant remember in what context or with which program it was.

quitting an app with a third party process killer which doesnt work right could cause that, or maybe faulty RAM, i am not sure what in OS9 is whatching open processes and i dont think one can refresh that info other than rebooting.

itīs ok now or did it come back?

refreshing and/or low level formatting is usually a dos/win only job. the manufacturer of the HD should list somewhere which tools are available (it is mostly theirs which work best)

Storage Technologies / Re: SeriTek 1V4 SATA Card not working OS 9

i had similar problems with one of my sonnet cards where some of the volumes /dirves wouldnt show up under certain cinditions. for example, the malfuntion went away when you boot into safe boot mode, so that the osx kernel extension wasnt loaded.

note that not all seritek cards are supporting OS9 and OSX.

greetings fellow mac users;)

i think this original poster is actually a bot/script
the security questions for registration on the forum must have somehow been cracked by whoever programmed this spambot script

cheers

why not try re-flashing the firmware of the seritek card?

just wondering if anyone knows of an existing crack for this program
which lets you run a a fully macos9-compatible AFP file server (network shared folder / network shared drive)
on a PC running windows XP.

i posted a link to the app in my post but i believe that this software expires after 20 days.
i happened to install one for testing purposes around the time of my above post,
and i actually have all my files on it and now its expired on me!!!!

I didn't update the firmware. I do this only if it's no more than starting an installer.

I installed W98 and it worked without error.

I installed XP, but it couldn't restart, because "NTLDR wasn't found", but when I booted from an USB stick then NTLDR was still there.

I created a partition in the last 8 GB of the HD. The rest was not partitioned. I installed XP and it works.

I installed Puran DiskFresh and let it refresh the entire volume, which was a bit weird, because you can continue to use the computer while it's working, on formatted as well as other areas. After 3 hours and 45 minutes it finished without error.

Is there something similar for OS 9 or OSX?

Guess so my friend ;) ..but what does it imply technically?  I've never seen this message regarding any other program. Is there a way to avoid this type of crash?
