Re: Windows 2008 R2 issues
I've used ntfs-3g successfully in the past without any problems but have recently encountered some issues when using Windows 2008 R2.
The help I can provide will be limited as I am not to have Windows 2008 in a foreseeable future...
# I create a file in windows (for example c:\Test.txt) with the contents "Test".
# Shutdown windows
# Mount the drive with ntfs-3g (which appears to always complain that the drive hasn't been unmounted cleanly: The disk contains an unclean file system (0, 1). The file system wasn't safely closed on Windows. Fixing.)
# Edit the file (contents are now "Test 2")
# Unmount the drive and restart windows
This looks to me like Windows rexecuting the logged transaction after mounting again. I have frequently seen Windows not actually writing to the files, only to the journal, in order to write faster in a sequential log and group all the writings later. Usually Windows cleans the log when shutting down, leaving files in a clean state.
What you report looks like Windows delaying the log processing after shutting down. Maybe this is a shutting down option (fast shutdown ?).
Anyway, ntfs-3g is not to process the log in the near future. If my suspicion is confirmed, you have to find a way to process the log before shutting down.
