I know we just have to wait for this and Brahim is a very busy man but any chance we could have a little more information as to what problems he has and how he is fixing them?
The whole project is far too complex for me to understand but I'm curious anyway.

There is an issue in some systems (like mine) where editing an existing file... erm... trashes the file. :P
You understand that such an issue means "no go" before resolved.

It is possible that if no solution is found in timely fashion (this my take mind you), he will release a beta with this warning so to see which systems HAVE the issue and which not.

We'll see. He is doing tests right now.

When you say a system "like mine" do you mean using a particular RAID engine or the storage pool or a combination of the two?

Is the file recoverable from the parity data?

How does he do testing has he some automated system or is it just a case of physically setting up a running each test?

I understand that. A data protection system which destroys your data is kind of redundant.

A system like mine, means my server (SBS2011), possibly MY server only (but we don't know), when using Cruise Control Real Time.

We haven't tried to recover (I suppose it works) because the problem is WHY IT GETS SCREWED.

He is physically logging in my machine and makes tests (or I am).
