for 10 years I have been backing up my firefox profile and transferring it from one computer to another. I have been using encfs for the past 5 years. In the last 5 years I’ve been using fedora as a workstation and only updated to the last.My file system broke this week - ext4
After a series of repair and data recovery, I found that files located in the firefox profile, broke my file system.
when copying the profile locally i noticed the following errors:
read errors mapping “/home/user/encfs/.mozilla/firefox/ilhj0sg6.MAIN/storage/default/https+++site.tld/.metadata-v2”: Bad message
The effect is the same after reinstalling Fedora38-KDE. Of course I found out the hard way
I turned off the encfs and haven’t had any problems for 4 days now.
The problem is also noticed with file system XFS
I am very happy with the EncFS. Has anyone had similar problems? How did you solve it?
