In reply to: Maybe btrfs has no fsck,
Parent article: What ever happened to chunkfs?
The "it eats your filez"-reputation of XFS has been greatly exaggerated.
I've had rock solid way to reproduce this effect: run bittorrent client on 100% full filesystem. Sure, this is not nice thing to do for a filesystem (and currently btrfs does not handle this case all that well), but stuff happens. If I can not trust my filesystem in such conditions how can I trust it at all?
It looks like XFS problems are in the past but trust is easy to lose, hard to resurrect - now I'm firmly in ext3 camp.
