WinBtrfs

I thought it worth sharing this. I found an implementation of Btrfs for Windows. Probably a useful resource. I am a big fan of Btrfs. https://github.com/maharmstone/btrfs

    Do you think it can support the EBCIDIC encoded record based data access pattern that is my latest project to ‘innovate’? This is not a joke, this just landed on my desk last week. Lucky me.

    In all seriousness, the feature list looks impressive but assuming the code is good (which I glanced at), let’s talk in 2027 or so once they have most of the bugs out. The really bad ones won’t be out by then, but there are only the corner cases that cause unrecoverable data corruption so we won’t worry too much about them ????

    IMHO most hardware is tested & optimized (to whatever extent performance is even checked under realistic conditions) using common file systems including


    * FAT (yes, still)
    * NTFS (vintage XP / server 2003)
    * EXT variants

    Many other more advanced file systems exist, and have very clear and distinct advantages over some of these, but

    I used Btrfs in Arch Linux for a couple of years. I tinkered with almost
    all of the features. This was about five years ago. I was a little buggy at
    the time, and lost a couple of disk of data during a crash, but it was all
    junk data. I would not have put anything important on it. I hear it has
    become quite stable in Linux now.

    I'll tinker with the Windows version over the weekend and see if it works.
