Filter new information on the newoperating system Windows 8, but not official from Microsoft.Themysterious file system Protogon refs and was renamed the public betaof the OS would be available in February 2012.
In fact according WinUnleaked,Microsoft would be renamed in Protogon REFS for Resilient FileSystem, ie "file system strong." The aim would be toprovide a file system less sensitive and therefore more "resistant"to the software and hardware failures.
Unlike Protogon, REFS is present in theinterface of disk formatting. The user can format a unit refs(instead of the traditional FAT32 and NTFS), but it is impossible toinstall on the Windows partition REFS 8 which requires the NTFS filesystem. What is so REFS?
The new file system REFS would actuallybe exclusively reserved for editions of Windows Server 8 for aspecific purpose so that data preservation is considered capital atthe expense of performance can be compared to NTFS.
We could learn more about REFS at theshow CES 2012 to be held from January 10 to 13 in Las Vegas. Thelatest rumors suggest, in fact, a presentation of the beta of Windows8 in the CES. But for some public beta of Windows 8 would beavailable until late February.
