If so, here it goes: Story type: Horror I will never use XFS again. It delays flushing changes to disk too long. So a power loss destroyed a complete filesystem; couldnt repair. xfs_force_shutdown and XFS_WANT_CORRUPTED_GOTO at line 1634 where the messages thrown at the user and didnt get fixed since 2004. So went back to ext3, never failed. It's a little slower when sustained writes are congesting the journal but it's fine. I'am looking forward to try ext4 with delayed allocation, multiblock alloc and online defrag. The last time I could defrag a unix filesystem was Veritas vxfs on Sun.
