My pfs/0/ disapeared! HELP!
My pfs/0/ disapeared! HELP! –
I was transfering ELFs to my HD using ExecFTP 0.68 and FlashXP. I transfered many elfs but now i cant find my /pfs/0, so i can't mount partitions to transfer more files.
if can only find /pfs/!!!
PS2 v9 USA
put ps2menu-k or ps2os on the memcard, boot it delete the files you transferred to the hdd (except execftps) reboot and reinitialise the ftp. You should be fine after that, then retransfer the files a few at a time.
You mean ALL FILES? Clear the HDD?
Thanks in advance!
/pfs/ is not a physical drive, but a virtual link to a drive which can vary.
The connection between the virtual link and the physical drive ALWAYS disappears every time you turn off or reset the PS2. So you must repeat the same SITE MNT command that you used in your first session in every later session where you need to access the same partition.
The subfolder "0/" of the filesystem "/pfs/" does NOT exist until you mount a partition as described above, so the "/pfs/" filesystem ALWAYS appears empty until that is done. This is quite normal and nothing to worry about.
As stated in the ExecFTPs README, you should also remember to use the unmounting command before terminating an FTP session. The reason for this is that ExecFTPs and the low level drivers it uses may have data cached that should be written to the HD. Unmounting the "/pfs/0/" filesystem will flush that data cache onto the HD, thus ensuring that the transferred files are complete on disk.
The correct flushing command is:
"site umnt /pfs/0/"
But excluding the quotation marks, of course.

I tried to mount and umount the partition, but i always get a message : "not understood". I thing it is happening because the flashxp can't find the /pfs/0.
Before this problem, i could see my /pfs/0 even if i didnÂ´t mount the partition (but i didnÂ´t see any files).
I did transfer ELFs to my HDD, but now i canÂ´t. I guess i have to re-format my HDD and transfer everything again
Something about your description of events doesn't add up.
Like I said before, there is NO way to display meaningful contents of the /pfs/ filesystem without mounting a physical partition. The only harddisk content that can be displayed then is the list of partition names in /hdd/0/. And it is of course one of those names that should be mounted to /pfs/0/. Directly opening partitions without mounting them first is not an option.
I used HDDFormat to create a partition named "RA.01", but in accessing this through the filesystem drivers (as used by ExecFTPs) this comes out as "+RA.01". Now in order to access that partition for uploading files, I start ExecFTPs on the PS2, and use FlashFXP to connect to it from my PC, and after logging in I rightclick in the remote browser window and select 'Commands\Raw command (quote)' in the popup menu. That brings up a dialog box where I enter the following line:
site mnt /pfs/0/ hdd:+RA.01
From that moment on I can access my partition as /pfs/0/, and that will continue to function until ExecFTPs is terminated on the PS2 (reset or restart or whatever). However, once the PS2 has been restarted, it has NO memory whatever of which partition I was working with, so in a new ExecFTPs session I will have to send the same mount command again. That is the ONLY way in which ExecFTPs can access the harddisk.
If you reformat your drive, you still won't be able to FTP stuff to the HDD without mounting partitions, because ExecFTPs simply doesn't work that way.
Btw: While it is possible to exit FlashFXP without unmounting the PS2 HDD partition used, that is never advisable, as some data sent to the /pfs/0/ may then miss being flushed to the physical disk. Therefore mounting and unmounting should be done at start and end of each client session, regardless of whether the server is left active or not.

sometimes its kinda buggy.. try refreshing, sometimes you'll need to make a "dummy" folder..
the refreshing works for the hdd
making a dummy folder works for the MC
My problem was that. I was transfering stuff to hdd and ExecFTP stopped a nd I couldnÂ´t mount partitions after I restarted. I solve the problema creating a partition and now it works again.
