After moving an external drive from
I have a 1TB external SSD with a single exFAT partition. I plugged this into Mac OS X and write about 250GB worth of files. File contents seem normal. After safely ejecting the drive, and plugging it into an Ubuntu 14.04 system with
exfat-utils installed, the drive mounts successfully and I can see the files. However, many of the files now have extra data both appended and prepended. For example:
On Mac OS X:
$ cat bootstrap.bash build/soong/bootstrap.bash
$ cat bootstrap.bash XSym 0026 b6fcaef0c9993fb6d1312e1d5e1749ef build/soong/bootstrap.bash (Note: Tons of whitespace here...)
This has happened to thousands of files. Prefixed with
XSym, a 4-digit number, and then what appears to be a hash (MD5 perhaps?). After the file contents, a large amount of space characters.
$ cat build/envsetup.sh XSym 0016 44d14bb79b8bd36de18d71e0498a4a19 make/envsetup.sh
EDIT: The affected files may all be symlinks
I'm looking at this to see if it answers my question...
