Hey all.

BACK STORY: the other day I popped my SD card from my 3.60 enso Vita into my Windows 10 PC to copy some files. Windows gave me a message like "there's a problem with this drive" so I did the scan and repair. All seemed fine, until I noticed a folder called FOUND000 on my SD card after the scan/repair with 21 small 64K files on it, with names like FILE000x.CHK.

I'm guessing there was some corruption on my SD card after a hard restart, and these are chunks of data that got corrupted or lost.

Since I have no good way of knowing where these data came from i.e. what files they were once part of, I'm now afraid things may become unstable.

MY QUESTION: is it safe to keep the card as is, or should I just reformat and start from scratch to be sure?

  • Veho @ Veho:
    What's "organic" flavor? Cow manure?
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Organic = $$$ machinery = $ flavor is just marketing
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Plus I think they don't use chickens for target practice at organic farms or something
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Nah, "organic" started as a good idea but then got co-opted by too many large companies for it to mean anything at this point.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    This is why we need food in pill form
  • Veho @ Veho:
    The "organic" label got a legal definition and guess who owns the people who wrote the law?
  • Veho @ Veho:
    So the standards for something to be "organic" dropped like a rock.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    I read the ingredients, if they start with "water, modified corn starch" then no matter how "organic" it is it's garbage.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Looking at ketchup recently, it's ridiculous how few of them start with "tomato".
  • Veho @ Veho:
    (Ingredients are listed in descending order by percentage, at least here.)
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Most are "water, modified starch, HFCS, vinegar, tomato puree (from concentrate). Get fucked.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Gonna turn into a tradwife and make my own ketchup.
