FYI Savefile manager

Post#1 by Ed_P » 04 Aug 2014, 17:24

Used the Savefile Manager to "resize a savefile" and ended up with a new save.dat file, porteussave-2.dat, larger than my original but with none of my original files/folders in it. If this needs to be run in Always Fresh mode there is no instructions indicating that.

Retried the "resize a savefile" option in GUI mode again, to a different location, same result. The process stops after Formating the drive.

Retried in Always Fresh mode and this time it Copied files after formatting the larger file. There is nothing indicating that this needs to be done in Always Fresh mode nor can I see why it needs to be.

yes - save.dat must be not in use when doing resize/repair. i'm sure brokenman will add missing info to save file manager in next release.

thanks for pointing this out.
