Hi Guys, It might sound like paranoia. I have an app that creates 16 user default keys on it's first launch which are integers saved as keys (probably could have been an array for that one), also about 8 settings bundle keys. Every subsequent launch it reads the values in all of those keys, then it loads a 512K file, some images, then an 880K file. What happens if the file system isn't ready when the program is running? Should I be delaying (maybe for first launch for the writing) between any of this activity? Cheers, Art.
