    Just built my Groovesizer and saved my first patch and sequence. It seems I saved them in ‘System->1’ by mistake, but I can’t find that folder on the SD card.

    I’ve not encountered this before. Could it be a hidden folder on the SD card?

    Hmm… I did format the card before using it for the groovesizer, but maybe this is a ghost of its former life as a bootable Linux card?

    That sounds like a possibility, yeah.

    Well, after completely removing the partition table with diskpart before creating a new partition and formatting it I’m fairly certain there’s nothing left on the SD card. The first entry in the Groovesizer’s file browser is still a folder called system->1 (-> is actually a single arrow character that I can’t be bothered finding the alt code for).

    No ideas at all?

    Ok, managed to try it with another SD card (actually a MicroSD in an adaptor) and that has a System->1 folder too when browsing the root. The Groovesizer uses 8.3 naming convention, right? Is the arrow character being used in place of the ~ that DOS/Windows use? My computer is set to show hidden files so I’m not sure where this folder is hiding…

    Which OS are you using when formatting the cards?

    Windows 8.1

    It’s not like this is actually preventing me from using it or anything, it’s just a mystery that’s really bugging me now!

    Solved! My instincts were right, the -> in ‘system->1’ was being used by the groovesizer in place of the ~ normally used in the 8.3 name format. The mystery folder was a ‘system volume information’ folder being placed there by Windows.

    I had windows set to show hidden files and folders, but what I was missing was ‘hide protected operating system files’ being ticked.
