RE: ext3_free_blocks_sb when removing a more than 1GB file



:) I'm not removing the key during the test.

Yes "umount/mount/rm", "umount/fsck/mount/rm" and "rm" give the same error...

I have several keys from the same brand, model and I have the same issue.

When I said, a different key, it was a different brand.

At the end, it seems that ext2 is working fine!

So maybe a problem in ext3 in 2.6.23 kernel ?!?
I had a try on 2.6.32_27, I did not succeed to reproduce the issue.

Do you know when ext3 is supposed to be stable ?

Ok, I had the impression that you were removing the usb key at
some point in the test, but I guess not.

you mean that umount/mount/rm gives the same error?  As does umount/fsck/mount/rm ?

Try a much newer kernel, first of all, to see if it's a known, fixed bug.

But since it works on another usb key, I still tend to blame the hardware.
"bit already cleared" makes it sound like it is reading zeros when it
should not be.
