Windows I may not be particularly enamoured with how badly Windows 8 handles mouse, keyboard, and window management right now, but as far as under-the-hood improvements go, Microsoft is packing. They're redone much of the chkdsk utility, but they forgot to fix one important thing: rename the darn thing to checkdisk already!

ReFS does not have a chkdsk, and it can perform salvage entirely online.

Yeah that is cool. But how safe is ReFS? I would like to see research on ReFS first. As CERN points out, it is not trivial to make a safe filesystem, and CERN examined even Enterprise storage solutions. Even they could not always protect against Data corruption. It is very hard to do correctly.
