Alfat: 2 files with the same name


#1

Somehow I got 2 files with the same name on my SD card. Obviously this is pretty messed up as I don’t know which file I am reading or appending to:

221234F.CSV

$000014FA

As you can see in the above example 221234F.CSV shows up twice. This file is created/appended by the ALFAT.

What can cause this?

The main reason for corruption in any FAT system would on disconnecting the media before the file is properly closed.
