In my earlier reply to you about the VMS filesystem, I called it Tops-10. That was an early PDP-10 OS, not a filesystem. My mistake. The filesystem I was thinking of was called Files-11. (Easy mistake for me to make.)
And given that the original context was Windows NT features copied from VMS, I just spotted another one: the time counter is based on 100-nanosecond intervals since some epoch. For VMS the epoch is 1858-11-17; for Windows NT it’s 1601-01-01.
