We have 2 scenarios.


Scenario 1 : Earlier we implemented 3 logical partitions and a temporary file in each of them. The temp file were checked on system Initialization process and if they are found, then partition is concluded to be fine. With that change , new mfs.a library got created.


Scenario 2: Later/Recently we removed creating of temp files and introduced MFS integrity logic /check for 3 logical partitions. This change created an another mfs.a library. 


Question: - Do you suspect, a format is needed for all the partition with creation of new mfs.a? .(i.e new FAT allocation is needed)
