[38a] Drive full - corrupts two save games before crashi
« on: March 10, 2008, 01:38:00 am »

I noticed this before, but my current version is df_27_176_38a. I've found that when the drive my save games are on gets full during a save it can corrupt the save so it can't load. But the save does not always fail, sometimes it doesn't crash until the second save when the drive is full.

I like to save after every season and am currently running from a 1Gb USB drive. More than once now I've made the mistake of not leaving enough room for the next save. This last time my main, winter and spring saves were all corrut and I had to go back about 3 hours of playing to utumn save. It seem like it ran out of room during the winter save but didn't crash until it tried to make the spring save.

Please save me and my dwarves from my own carelessness and add a bit more sanity checking to the save process.
