Its slow but the only way to share large files with win xp

NTFS compression is dumb, only useful for archiving isos
Btrfs has better heuristics if you want to compress an entire drive without too much overhead, plus you can choose different compression algorithms

I use it on all removable media and format literally everything to NTFS just to trigger the iToddlers in my class. Their toddler devices can't write to the drives and since it's almost all women, they can't figure out how to circumvent this.

Servers -even more so the really big ones- actually mostly use xfs from what I can tell.

XFS has a stellar record in terms of stability and good features (also because most of x can be disabled as tweak in case you have it in a layer above, e.g. in your distributed filesystem or database).

>> No.79295576


>> No.79295598

Not same anon.
ZFS has checksums & has nice CLI.

It also requires more hardware than most filesystems, can't grow its raidz arrays (most other solutions can and honestly at home you might want to add one drive rather than a full new array). And the "Zettabyte" part is a lie, as far as I can tell it will always scale like shit even to 20-40 drives.

Still actually it's not prohibitively bad, not too few people who use it like it. But it's not the cure-all hype thing some make it out to be.

Too bad they can still read it - they just can't write to it. A real dick move would be to format to something esoteric to them, like ext or xfs or some nonsense.

Even Microsoft knows it's bad in every way, that's why they're using WinFS on Windows 10X.

Btrfs is fantastic for personal setups in particular. The snapshot system is a godsend for incremental backups.

I've used it since I switched from FAT a couple decades ago and haven't had any trouble yet. it's been tried and tested on the most systems for the longest time and all recovery software supports it

The only argument against it is fragmentation but any Windows system after 2006 Will automatically complete this in the background at low priority

For me, it's NTFS

Decent enough to run windows on.
It's not that great, Microsoft even attempted to replace it.

>heh, nothing personnel kid
It's called having an SSD. You don't need something fancy, an SATA drive is enough to solve your issues. Also windows has a auto defrager for HHD's that runs after 3 days so this issue doesn't really exist anymore

>> No.79300074

SSDs do fragment though.

so does ext4

>> No.79300741

Generally less bloated, the way NTFS stores data is a total cluster fuck. *FAT* is much more simpler, doesn't store file ownership or permissions. It can also be used across any platform and iirc is a good bit faster.
For external storage exFAT is certainly better. For an OS you wouldn't use it unless you're memeing (Although I've seriously thought about doing it)

Windows 10 Enterprise and server allows ReFS volumes to be created and all versions can read and write to them. It will eventually replace NTFS.

>> No.79301244

It's absolutely an issue. Onboard firmware does optimistic read-ahead but it isn't aware of the underlying filesystem. With fragmentation, a lot of read-ahead will result in misses.

It's not as much an issue with hard drives, because those have to deal with the added seek latency caused by fragmentation, but you're going to have seeking anyhow if you have concurrent access to more than one file.

>> No.79301293

I meant to say it's not as much an issue as it is with hard drives. The point though is in most workloads, fragmentation does not really matter unless it is very severe, and then it's not going to affect performance as much as stability and storage efficiency.

>> No.79301307

NTFS is just a barely, slightly better FAT32/exFAT. Still proprietary garbage that microsoft just refuses to let it die when the linux/new FSs are lightyears ahead.

>> No.79301316

Ntfs is as ancient as ext2 and while decent for its time, it wasn't a match for ext3 never mind ext4 or the amazing xfs which is only about a year older than ntfs. Arguably xfs got some significant features on Linux meanwhile, but it was better even back then.

>> No.79301401

it's ssSOOOOSSsoo goodd!!!!

>> No.79301427

FAT32 had an actually significant tendency to corrupt. NTFS doesn't really terribly.

FAT32 also had an even more significant tendency to fragment - NTFS at least trivially does something against this. Window may still need to schedule defragments by default so the issue doesn't grow too large, but still, better than FAT32 which almost literally did nothing.
