I read the Custer book "Inside NTFS" a few years back, I think the first
edition. I have heard that there have been new editions released. The one
I read gave a vague general overview, but nothing specific. I'll have to
that this other Nagar book, as I have his book on writing filesystem
drivers which is very good. Finally, I am a big fan of sysinternals, but I
have never seen this kind of detailed byte by byte info on the site, nor
can I find it now. The best info I have seen on there is the description
of the defrag apis. Could you give me the direct url to this byte by byte
info you mentioned?
Thank you very much, this is a very interesting topic for me.
