As David Ruck, the resident expert on things disk filesystem related, hasn't received any of the logs that CJE have collected I don't quite see how anyone can comment (one way or the other) on likely causes or otherwise for this corruption. Errant software - unless it's deliberately mucking up the filesystem - should *not* be able to leave things in such a state that the harddisk looks "unformatted". Additionally if it's errant on A9 it would surely also be so on Iyonix, RISC PC et al and there'd be a flood of errors being reported on those platforms too (haven't heard a peep though...).

Best thing to do is leave this to the experts to sort out (as in time no doubt they will).
