How can EXT4 and dynamic FileSync be a risk to data integrity? I've been using it for a long time without any issues that I've noticed so hopefully it's alright
Thanks for that explanation! I have had random shutdowns as well but only a few times. I've disabled them now. Integrity > riskWell, in theory it was always a risk.
Both options cause delayed writing of data to sd memory. So when something unforeseen happens, it can always lead to data integrity issues by nature. Although on dynamic fsync lots of functions to avoid that are built in, nevertheless...
But yes, I admit I also did not have lots of issues in the past (apart from hard shutdowns etc.). But since OOS 5 something has changed and I could replicate data loss issues when these two options were switched on.
As the two options also only boost benchmark figures and do not have any measurable or significant impact on daily usage, the question is: Why putting risk on data integrity for it?
I mean, it is a warning: You are free to - of course - continue to keep it enabled. This is fully up to you, and this is also the reason I did not hardly remove it (which I planned for some time even).
