Well, you can't really say "it's just like FAT" if you've only looked at FAT. > possibly untrue in Win NT, From what I've read, it's a journalling filesytem based on a B+ tree with small files stored directly in the tree and larger files in variable-length extents. It sounds superficially similar to several UNIX filesystems. I see that ext4 the successor to ext3, and which also has extent support, has a defragmenter. And it appears to give significant increases in read speeds. http://ols.108.redhat.com/2007/Reprints/sato-Reprint.pdf _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
