    The jffs partition is used by the router to save some persistent data (sort of like nvram for other large data). It keeps your certs if you use OpenVPN or HTTPS, a copy of the syslog, data related to the clients which have connected (clientlist data), etc.

    You can also customize some of the router functions with user written scripts and configs (see the wiki for more info). If you haven't written any of those, it's OK that the 'custom scripts and configs' option is No.

    I see, thanks... I might try this on a light day here at work... maybe on a weekend.

    Would having my bandwidth usage tracking to set to NVRAM - 1 per day, be an issue? But I only enabled that in April, and I've had the 100% core issue since getting the router in December, so I would think not.

    Hmm....speculating again. The NVRAM is a rather small space (64K). It could be that there is a bug if the NVRAM gets full and it tries to free up some NVRAM space to save the stats.

    I'd recommend you change the save location to 'Custom location' and in the field to specify the location enter /jffs/ and check the radio button to 'Reset or Create data files', then hit the Apply button.
