A: The original Amiga file system supports certain
attributes, such as the Amiga "s" script flag, which have no
equivalent on host file systems such as Windows NTFS. Although
the Amiga operating system is perfectly compatible with non-Amiga file systems
(Novell, NFS and CD file systems have been in use with the Amiga
since the late 1980s), Amiga emulation programs like WinUAE
also support the ability to preserve Amiga-specific file and
directory attributes. This data is written to files named "_UAEFSDB.___".
If you prefer not to take advantage of this feature, you can
set the "filesys_no_fsdb=true" option in the
override.ini emulation settings
file. This option prevents new files from being created, while
existing files continue to be maintained. If you prefer to remove
all "_UAEFSDB.___", you can do so, with no negative effect on the
emulation (other than the loss of Amiga-specific attributes).
