Talk:Btrfs

From ArchWiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Note: The name of the file system does not seem to have an official capitalization, so the rule for the ArchWiki has been arbitrarily set to use "Btrfs" (capital "B" and the rest lower-case); "btrfs" and "BTRFS" are therefore wrong spellings in this wiki. -- Kynikos (talk) 09:36, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

"Displaying used/free space" needs rewrite

Section "Displaying used/free space" needs a rewrite. I will hopefully do that when I have time.
