Originally from ticket #7622.
Hi, Just loaded your v30 update and it seemed to load okay and I've haven't seen any ill-effects -- iUSBport just keeps getting a little better & better as time goes on.
Here, I'll mention something that I noticed long ago and figured it would be fixed in some update, but haven't seen that happen yet so I thought I would pass along my observations.
I have noticed when copying FOLDERS of files to an iUSBport storage device mounted as a file server on my Win 7 desktop, that after the file copy completes, the files have the correct date stamp, but the enclosing folders show up with December 31, 1999 date stamps and in one case, I noticed a January 1, 2000 folder date stamp. This is also true for a folder within a folder and probably to higher levels of folder nesting. For the folder in a folder case, once again, the files have the correct date, but the folder that holds the files, and the top level folder all have erroneous dates.
As for files size, again I copied files to a Win 7 mounted iUSBport server and then mounted the iUSBport storage device on my Mac OS X desktop using smb://IP-Address, and noted that all files sizes are shown as an integer number of megabytes ( e.g., 1 MB, 2 MB, etc.). It seems that the minimum file size is 1 MB, regardless of how small the file actually is. If I plug the USB storage device directly into the Mac USB port, file sizes that make sense are noted. Also I re-checked the file size from Win 7 with the iUSBport storage device mounted as server, and noted that I again see file sizes that make sense. Sort of sounds like a Mac problem, but I just don't recall ever seeing this type of effect with other smb mounts that I've done in the past. The good news is that I think the file size stored on the storage device is correct so it seems it is a question of the Mac OSX-to-iUSBport smb interface.
Anyway, that it for now on this topic and looking forward to the iUSBport gets a processor update and maybe a higher capacity battery. I've looked at the mini, but for now sticking with iUSBport.
Used Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.8
Storage device was a SanDisk 64 GB USB Thumb Drive.
