Hello,

I inserted a 32GB microSD card into a RB435 running 6.4.
[admin@RB435G] /store disk> print

Strangely no supout.rif is being generated either even though I have the watchdog configured to email them (and emailing works when done manually).

I was planning to use the microSD as a web proxy cache.

Any ideas?

Is it a compatible card? Try another card and then send the card's make and model to support@mikrotik.com

I would try another card but unfortunately it's 16m up in the air. Even worse, I can't remember the make and model of the card!

Slightly confused about the issue of compatibility - is this is limitation of the microSD interface chipset or something resolvable by MikroTik with firmware?

I have successfully used more of these cards in microSD-to-USB adapters, etc. without any issues. Why would it NOT work?
