    Microsoft’s new Windows 8 Resilient File System will be server only


    Microsoft’s new file system for Windows 8 will only be available in server variants of the operating system, WinRumors has learned.


    The software maker is currently readying a new file system as an offshoot to the original concept of Windows Future Storage (WinFS). According to sources familiar with the company’s plans, the new file system is called Resilient File System. The project originally started out as Monolithic NTFS (MNTFS) and then ended up codenamed Protogon before the final Resilient File System (ReFS) naming was chosen.

    I'm a bit let down with the fact that it will be only in the server variants of the OS.

    Hi there

    Interesting stuff.

    Reading the link -- if the only thing people are complaining about are spelling mistakes -- then it shows the underlying base information in the link is fine.

    I would expect however that booting from a larger device than 3TB should be possible -- 3TB isn't that unusal for Disk sizes these days -- I was surprised last week to see 1 TB LAPTOP 2.5 inch disks already available.

    MS should really sort out a file system that would allow disk sizes of several PB (1 PB = 1000 * 1 TB) to be used -- although repairing data loss on say a 10 PB drive might be a tall order.

    Cheers
