NTFS Write Support GSoC - Week 6

This week was rewarding, because I got some things done that I've been wanting to do for a while.

Assigning Clusters

I closed out last week by drawing a flow chart in preparation for restructuring my code for some new state variables. For most of this week, I was figuring out details about, and implementing, this chart. 

SATA AHCI Driver GSoC - Week 5 Update

NTFS Write Support GSoC - Week 5


At the beginning of the week I finished cleaning up and committing the code I wrote related to extending a file's size. This took me a little longer than I expected and in the future I'm going to commit more often so I don't have this problem.

From there I added support for truncating files, with a couple of caveats. This is significant because it allows for opening a file in Notepad.exe, changing it, and saving it.
