Is btrfs secure sufficient for residence use?
The roadmap for btrfs in Ubuntu is to have it as the default filesystem by 12.04 LTS. The most likely cutover to fail will certainly be 11.04, various other circulations might have essentially hostile strategies, yet seeing them is your ideal sign to the regarded security and also integrity and also efficiency of the code.
What do you suggest by "residence back-up circumstance"? If you suggest system that is backuped regulary and also you can manage shed of some job (
btrfs is just fs for/ residence without crutial information) I would certainly claim you can attempt it if you really feel really adventorous.
If you suggest fs that underlaying back-up you possibly require rock-stable filesystem - like ext3/4 with ultra traditional alternatives (Your millage may vary which filesystem). Neither zfs-fuse neither btrfs are secure sufficient.
If you suggest that photos are your "back-up" method - after that you have no back-up.
Possibly you should read gotchas and also ask youself at each factor "can I manage it taking place?".
From my/ etc/fstab :
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 / btrfs defaults 1 1
So, in such a way, yes, it is. I have not had a solitary trouble with it. Nonetheless, I re-install usually (I make use of Fedora, so I install a new release two times a year) and also :
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol02 /home ext4 defaults 1 2
my/ residence is not on btrfs. :)
Examining new things. It's an unclean work, yet someone needs to do it.
