No progress really.
I'm experimenting with using ZFS datasets as storage pool drives on my own install, and if that's stable enough, I might start recommending that as the file-system to use for storage pool drives, since ZFS has a checksum features, which I'm pretty sure would prevent such problems from occurring.

I don't have anything in my PM inbox from you..? Could you re-send it please?

Another PM sent, but it's showing in my "Outbox" still.

The original message is showing as "Sent" to you though (Jan 5th).

might want to look into ZFS at http://zfsonlinux.org/ You can read more about it on Wikipedia
zfs does drive pooling, file checksum and self-healing on every read of a file.
Its not officially support on amahi though but that may not be important to you.
The only issue with ZFS is that Fedora is a constantly changing release distro with no time for a stable ZFS to run within it without much messing about.

If you have a VM or a separate box on which to mount NFS or iSCSI as the storage for Amahi, it could work out better, although a bit complex.
