I just found another place discussing my problem on the forum. It’s “Use ext4 usb drive to copy content into Rachel Plus 3.0?” I’ll chime in over there also to make sure I understand your recommendation.
When I plug a USB disk into my RACHEL Plus v3 it formats it to EXT4. I’ve tried using a disk with no format, with 1 NTFS & 1 EXT4 partition, & with only 1 NTFS partition. In every case, it reformatted the USB as a single partition EXT4.
I lost days of work when it reformatted a USB with all of my English, Spanish, & French modules, plus all of my exported Kolibri channels.
I’ve got about 8 or 9 RACHEL Plus v3s in the field. None have Internet. I’m going to have to come up with a new way of bringing upgrades to the field since I can no longer use a USB drive directly connected to the CAP as I have in the past.
