In this blog I am trying to introduce with new file system
ReFS in windows 8.
ReFS stands for Resilient File System, it is a
next-generation file system developed by Microsoft Corporation. This file
system is used for Windows 8 Servers and Windows 8. This file system was
developed from zero level but in this file system provides fragmental compatibility
with NTFS. It has inherited the some usable features from NTFS (New Technology
File System). If you are keen to use more protected ReFS file format on Windows
8 then you need to activate ReFS File format on your system. It supports
Windows 8 64-bit build 9200 (RTM), 8400 (RP) and 8250 (CP).
ReFS were designed as a file system which would be used on a
large storage. A side effect of this is that you can’t use ReFS on a removable
storage (Pen drive etc.). Another sequel is that ReFS widely uses B-tree data
structures, which are known to be giant, to get better performance. Moreover,
ReFS is providing superior protection against data loss due to various reasons
and to ensure greater hindrance to omnifarious failures.
Below are the capacity limits for ReFS:
Features of ReFS:
It has reliable and scalable on-disk structure
using B+ trees and ACLs.
ReFS have a robust disk update strategy.
ReFS are resilient to disk corruptions. No more
blue screens. I wish and data loss. I wish J ReFS continues to have disk volume
available even it fails.
ReFS have a reliable and scalable on-disk
structure. To me, it seems like we will see none or less blue screens.
