Transactional NTFS (TxF)
[Microsoft strongly recommends developers utilize alternative means to achieve your application’s needs. Many scenarios that TxF was developed for can be achieved through simpler and more readily available techniques. Furthermore, TxF may not be available in future versions of Microsoft Windows. For more information, and alternatives to TxF, please see Alternatives to using Transactional NTFS.]
Transactional NTFS (TxF) allows file operations on an NTFS file system volume to be performed in a transaction. TxF transactions increase application reliability by protecting data integrity across failures and simplify application development by greatly reducing the amount of error handling code.
TxF uses the transaction framework provided by the Kernel Transaction Manager (KTM). This allows TxF file operations to be part of a transaction involving other data sources such as SQL Server and Transacted Registry (TxR).Distributed Transaction Coordinator (DTC).
Run-time requirementsTxF is available starting with Windows Vista.
