I would like to continue this discussion about the FAT corruption.

In the MQX4.0. I found that when being mounted, the MFS did not care about the second FAT even #define MFSCFG_NUM_OF_FATS 2  

Please see the code in Mfs_fat.c line 207-211


  for ( i=0;i<(drive_ptr->FAT_CACHE_SIZE) && (error_code==MFS_NO_ERROR);i++ )


error_code = MFS_Read_device_sector (drive_ptr, drive_ptr->FAT_START_SECTOR + needed_sector + i,

(pointer) &drive_ptr->FAT_CACHE_PTR[drive_ptr->BPB.SECTOR_SIZE*i]);



ie. if the first FAT corrupted, it will not be recovered.



Did I miss something?
