Revisiting this thread about robut file systems
and what to use these
days on disk storage:
checksums for data from the day one. I have no idea what you mean.
My understanding was that they first only had metadata checksums and
only crc32 or something they wrote about, and in these days they go
for better checksum algo and for data itself. Mybad? So can I happily
go for btrfs and restore my data even if my single physical disk has
somewhat of an outage, defective blocks? Or what is exactly covered
and handled by this checksums for data bytes itself?
Thanks for explanation and thread.
