- read-after-write verificationsearch for term
A NetWare feature that protects data from failures in network hardware. When the NetWare network operating system writes data to a block on the hard disk, it reads back the data and compares it to the original data still in memory. If the data from the disk matches the data in memory, the data in memory is released. If the data does not match, Hot Fix marks that block on the disk as bad and redirects the data to another location on the hard disk.
