# resilient file system (Windows 8) (ReFS)

Windows 8 has an extended file system, the Resilient File System (ReFS). It is compatible with the New Technology File System( NTFS) file system.

The Resilient File System can manage files with a maximum size of 2^64, which corresponds to 16 exabytes( EB). It works with a checksum procedure,checks files for their integrity and can automatically correct any errors that occur. Furthermore, files are copied and secured before they are modified, so that they could be accessed later.
