Attempting to initialize my SharpDrive and it's failing with the message "Reason is SharpDrive token file does not exist after mount"
Data Filter Failure SharpDrive Initialization failed token file
Product Release(s)

Operating System(s)
All Supported
Problem Description
When attempting a backup or initialize of my SharpDrive resource, I'm getting the error:

"Data Filter Failure!!

[File is /usr/lib/edge/system/mnt/sd.sdc1]

Reason is SharpDrive token file does not exist after mount"

The file .edge.token is missing from the mount directory for the SharpDrive. Why this occurs is still under investigation by Microlite development.
Mount the SharpDrive manually from the shell. Then change directory to the mount point you specified. Then type:

touch .edge.token

Change directory back into / and then unmount the SharpDrive. Then try to initialize again under edgemenu.
