Re: Reliable file system?

The normal use of a journal is to prevent file _system_ corruption (e.g.
keep the directories all pointing to the right files and such).  That
doesn't help prevent files from having corrupted contents.

However, ext3 does also offer a data journaling mode that might help (at
the expense of performance).  See "man tune2fs" and look at the
journal_data option.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
