tried updating my working gps yesterday, but something went wrong - I received
error writing mctx.dat, so it wouldnt complete update.
I then had flashing red x when unplugged from pc
I have read various suggestions, and what I have tried is the following
1. copy entire contents onto pc for back up (inc hidden folders)
2. tried running chkdsk - wouldnt work
3. removed all files from the unit - except mctx.dat which wouldnt remove
4. run chkdsk which then removed the file and created FOUND file (with .chk files created) on the device
I am now left with a device which has around 1.5meg of .chk files which cant be removed, and therefore I cant reinstate the device file either through tt home or by copying back as there is insufficient memory.
Have I done something fatal??
The device still detects when plugged in and is accessible through explorer.

Responded to you at TTF, I think.
Anyway..........format the unit, don't use quickformat. Restore the backup and try again.
