    How to Create “Protogon” File System in Windows 8 M2/M3


    Since you are all adventurous...

    The early leaked builds of Windows 8 reveal a new file system codenamed as “Protogon”. The “Protogon” file system in Windows 8 M2 or Windows 8 M3 builds appears to be still in its infancy prototype, but has been rumored to be a sub-child file system of NTFS which will be named as NTPFS, as it’s is supported with NT Protogon FS kernel mode driver.

    Very interesting indeed. I think I will give this a try on the partition I have 7955 on.

    And, of course, the Protogon file system won’t be incompatible with Windows 7,Windows XP, and all other operating systems now.

    typo much. there is no way that protogon can be supported by Linux, Unix, or Vista and lower w/o radical redesign. win7 might get an update for compatability though.

    Wonder how this will affect Oracle and other databases running under NTFS? There will definitely be some impact.

    NTFS is turning into a dead filesystem, it seems. Like when FAT, FAT16, and FAT32 all died out and were inevitably replaced by NTFS; now NTFS is being replaced by NTPFS... it's going to take a lot of adjustment time for the I.T. world, that's for sure.

    It's inevitable, the changes always come, it will be a challenge for all.
