Never even think about to use BFFs for writing files from ADos to
No chance to ressurrect your files. Delete the files and try to copy
new files. But this time use NetBSD.
If you want to transfer files:
From ADos to NetBSD: Mount ADos Partitions under NetBSD or use floppies
From NetBSD to ADos: Use BFFs as read-only solution.
When mounting BFFs, immediatly start a 'lock BFFSa: on' (or whatever
your partition is called).
