Forgot to lock my SD card...
#1
So I popped the card into the computers (Windows 10) and realized a moment later that I'd forgotten to lock the card.

I've looked through it with "show hidden files" selected in Windows Explorer, and can't see any files written during the relevant time. So I don't think but am not positive that there was nothing written to the card.

Can anyone tell me what to look for on the card to see if anything was written to it?

(I've now put a red post plastic PostIt flag with "Lock!" written on it on the card to remind me in the future. Doesn't seem to interfere with inserting it.)

The writing of the system volume information to the drive is a problem on the ResMed S9. It didn't like having anything else on the card. ResMed corrected this problem on the A10's. You should be good to go.

Here is a script to turn the SysVol write option off/on on your computer.

You can also permanently resolve the lock/unlock SD card issue (although not a problem with the A10) by using a wireless SD card and transfer data wirelessly from your CPAP to your PC. The Sleepmaster or FlashPap programs will get this setup. Just click on the links below for either FlashPAP or Sleepmaster and you will find all the instructions well teased out. First though you will need to buy a wireless SD card. I use, as do many others here, the Toshiba FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Available on-line.
