    Also running one of those sbbsecho command-lines manually (from a command prompt) and then reporting the output would be helpful. Usually, a stale lock file indicates that it's crashing for some reason. No other reports of SBBSecho crashing lately.

    Just letting you know, as of build 3/2/22, the issue has cleared up, with no more problems.

    Okay, good to know.

    on another matter, is there a sbbsecho switch/option to delete/kill a bad packet, instead of just adding .bad extension to them. I looked in the wiki, but just don't see anything. Thanks in Advance.

    No, it's not option. Deleting inbound/*.bad would be a one-line event or script though, if that's what you want to do.

    You can use pktdump with the -split option on a bad packet and it'll
    extract any good messages. I'm sure it could be scripted but I do it
    manually when I spot them. At least you can salvage some messages from
    a packet.

    That worked fine, I was able to save alot of them with that method. What bugs me is I should not be getting that many bad packets from my hub. I get about 4 or 5 a day. I'm just going to make an event that will process the bad ones with pktdump, and delete when done. Thanks for the info.

    I used to get them often from ilink but not so much any more.
    Occasionally fsxnet. I think something was amiss somewhere that was
    fixed with an update.
