That is the only thing that can really be relied upon.
I'm all for learning more about file systems. Your experiences with
ext3 are not mine, but I did have a problem with ext3 that echoes
fsck would not run against an ext3 file system no matter what I did.
It kept reporting "journal says it's ok, so it's ok". I had forgotten
about "shutdown -fsck_it_when_it_comes_back_up" and the "tune2fs"
option to both set a check interval and then tell it it's exceeded
that interval already. Oh well, 20/20 hindsight.
There certainly is still room for improvement in file systems.
Does anyone have personal experience with "jfs"? It seems to compare
well in the tests.
