Disk error on creating file

Post by PandaWill »

I'm getting a disk error starting recently. Sab is trying to create a file with several backslashes for some reason.

I can't post a line from the log because the forum sees my log lines as a link and as a new user I can't post links.

It's trying to make a file like "\\\\?\\E:\\Usenet\\Incomplete\\..."

That's fine, that's special Windows notation to support long paths.
Are you sure nothing else changed? For example a new virusscanner?
