Anyone ever see any problems with storing files on a LinkSYS NAS (Network Attached Storage), it's basically a hard drive connected directly to the Network Switch, it is formatted with FAT32 but this guy is getting massive corrupted index files. I would think the problem lies in the NAS but he stated that it used to work flawless and now it doesn't since he upgraded to 4.3. Scary, anyone have any ideas?

Any suggestions greatly appreciated, or if you need more info please let me know.

Thanks,

Vic

I'm assuming you're talking about the NAS firmware. Can you downgrade it back to the original firmware? I have several Maxtor NAS devices. Almost routinely I'll have the ATA drives failing. I call Maxtor up and they'll send me a new one. Of course those NAS's are RAID 5. If there's data on the Linksys, back it up ASAP. If you already have an out of date backup, make a totally new one in case the data is getting corrupted on the NAS. What's the model number?
