Windows Windows testers will get a new beta version of Windows Vista, dubbed the December Community Technology Preview beta build, just before next week's holidays, according to tester scuttlebutt. New to the December release, testers say, will be a number of features and user-interface tweaks. a new defrag module; tight integration of Windows Defender (formerly known as Windows AntiSpyware); and a functional parental-controls filter are all rumored to be in the December Vista build.

(Read the sections on NTFS File System Recoverability and Recovering NTFS File Structures if you want to learn how this actually works. The 2003 Technical Reference should always be your first stop for understanding MS technologies, not backupbook.com, whatever that is). My original fact remains - it was 10 years after NTFS that Ext3 came around and Linux finally had journalling.

No.. the technical article posted are right, some people do not consider NTFS a pure journal file system because it do not suport block jornaling, but only metadata journaling for performance reasons.

I still don't understand why I find these links for defragging Ext2

You are confusing fragmentation resistence with on the fly defrag. ExtX do not execute a defrag process on background using CPU idle time, it in fact write the data on disk in a organizated manner. Now.. who method are better, serious, i don't know.
