notfred's doesn't save and resume on reboot

Postposted on Tue Dec 30, 2008 6:36 am

hi guys,
my notfreds stick doesnt seem to save the current workunit on the usb and resume, it just downloads another workunit and starts from 0, do you have any suggestions?

thanks

The changed values don't show up on the web page refresh after the submit, but I have confirmed that the underlying values are changed.

After changing the values you need to reboot to get it to pick them up.

The restore should happen automatically, I suspect the problem is that the save isn't actually saving before you are rebooting. What do you have the backup time set too? Remember it is in minutes and if set to 0 it means don't do any saves at all.

ok,
the backup only occurs when i plug in a secondary usb stick into the system. i thought the backup was suppose to occur on the original stick?

thanks

It should occur on the original AND on a secondary (sda and sdb in Linux terms). I wonder if the original is still being held by the BIOS after booting and not being released to the OS properly?
