Mac OS X The third and final WWDC product I want to talk about is - of course - OS X 10.9 Mavericks. While iOS 7 was clearly the focus of this year's WWDC, its venerable desktop counterpart certainly wasn't left behind. Apple announced OS X 10.9 Mavericks, the first OS X release not to carry the name of a big cat.

I don't. When NTFS crashes it can be far more subtle, let's say a cluster bitmap corruption (i.e. the bit that tells the filesystem what space is used and what is free). Ever seen that? It looks, on the user's end, like files are randomly disappearing as they're being erased by new files without the os realizing it.

Given how bad this is, NTFS works hard to avoid it, both at the design level and by making pessimistic assumptions in event of detected corruption. As above, I see a lot, and I don't see this often.


I have been working with computers since 1982, on the Internet since 1988, on the Web since 1992, and in the I.T. sector since 1997. I have enjoyed the Windows NT line of computers ever since NT 4.0 was released (got my first copy late 96), and I have *NEVER* seen something like this happen. And I have repaired thousands of NTFS-based Windows computers and Windows installations in my day from 4.0 clear up to Win8.

Was I just lucky? *knocks on wood*
