Well, I've been using this hardware for some time now, without any problem
at all... Regarding the network or the drives I mean.
I've transfering files in and out and never had to face any corruption

But since my problem seems to be unique, I guess it IS really something on
my side :(
It looks like a memory problem with cvsnt to me... and with that, it could
work like a charm until some weird config mess it up.

I'm really stuck. I don't know what to do :((
