I appreciate your offer sir but I'm still playing with it. Go hang out with your family and relax for awhile. :wink:

Another comparison, my save.dat file as of 4/30/14:

Code: Select all

 Your data file has been mounted at: 
/mnt/loop

You can unmount it by typing uloop

Here is a list of the files:

ls /mnt/loop/root
/bin/ls: cannot open directory /mnt/loop/root: Permission denied
/mnt/loop/root considerable smaller than it was 3 days ago. What the heck??


After restore of backup and before USM update:
