Why XAMPP drive gets easily corrupted?

Postby Alkis » 23. July 2017 23:36

It is the second time that my XAMPP drive got corrupted, the first time after about 3 months from the last XAMPP installation and the 2nd time after less than one month.
I am using the XAMP 5.6.30 installer to install XAMPP on a SD card connected to my PC, operating on Windows 7, as drive G:
This time, disk checking found 883 files corrupted. The whole 'htdocs' folder and other folders were corrupted. 'xampp-control.ini' and 'httpd.conf' were corrupted too.

The situation, more specifically: Everything worked OK for the whole morning. Then I put my PC to sleep, after I stopping Apache and MySQL services. (I try to always do this to avoid crashes like these, but it appears that it's not the solution!)

Can anyone tell me what makes a XAMPP drive getting so easily corrupted and how to prevent it?

Its not the Xampp Drive, the problem is the SD Card which does not support sophisticated caching and restoring options. Put your Xampp on a HDD or SSD and the problems disappear.
