Do you want to improve application reliability and data consistency, and reduce the amount of code you write? Do you want the ability to guarantee that the data in your files is consistent in the event of system failure? The Transactional NTFS (TxF) infrastructure in Windows Vista enables you to roll back operations made on the file system and registry. Using TxF, you can create a group of work that may include updates to files, the registry, and other traditional transactional storage resources. This group of work can then either be completed as a whole or reversed so that no durable changes are made. This webcast provides you with an overview of TxF features and walks you through a simple application.
