Filesystem Recovery Course - VMFS Recovery Test
What happens when a file is deleted?
metadata in the corresponding inode is overwritten with zeros
an entire inode is overwritten with zeros
payload in the corresponding inode is overwritten with zeros
VMFS uses only contiguous areas on a disk to store files
false, files can be fragmented
true, files cannot be fragmented
When was the first release of VMFS filesystem?
How inodes, indirect blocks table and small file repository are stored?
as special metadata structures
as regular files in the root filesystem directory
Where does VMFS store files smaller than 1 KB?
in indirect blocks table
inside the corresponding inodes
in a dedicated repository
What is the typical size of large cluster?
Where is small file repository stored on a VMFS volume?
in the beginning of the volume
one copy in the beginning and other – in the end
in the end of the volume
What metadata is stored in an inode?
date and time of file creation, the file name, and the file type
date and time of file creation, the file size, and the file type
date and time of file creation, the file size, and file name
What is common between VMFS and EXT?
both filesystems use inodes
both filesystems use a dedicated repository for small files
both filesystems use two different cluster sizes
What parts are there in an inode?
metadata, parent pointers, and payload
metadata and payload
metadata, segment numbers, and payload
