The one time I needed surgery to get the filesystem back up was when I backed up from the workstation to the file server and pulled the power cord on the server by accident. Now it's held in with a zip tie
That's a much better reply, thanks. Maybe you can cast some light on why no major distro uses BTRFS as the default file system. Snapshots itself is a feature that makes so much sense on a desktop that there must be some reason why even bleeding edge distros like Fedora avoid this file system. And that -adoption by major distros- is the only thing any regular user cares about regarding stability (which is what makes the idiotic explanations on the official wiki insulting).Depends who you ask... ask me? Its been stable and ready to be used since Fedora 17 was released (that time frame)-- thats about when I installed Arch on my home server with 2 hard drives and told Btrfs to automatically use both as a single volume. Btrfs on a home server, Btrfs on this laptop. Compression is awesome, automatic ssd optimizations are great, great performance, no bugs / crashes / corruption, nothing.
Its the same issue that KDE had... everyone got told "DONT USE IT ITLL EAT YOUR DATA" because of early bugs. People only speak up when things are bad, they dont speak when things are good. You just have to jump in the pool and see for yourself like I did guys, by the way...the water's great :P
Do not try that on a BTRFS filesystem. Ever!
