usn journal

Is avast 5's transient and persistent caches dependent on the usn journal? If so, what happens if I delete the journal via fsutil?

Yes, the persistent cache would probably get cleared (well, not really, but the effect would be the same I think).

thanks for the deleted posts Igor  ::) ... I don't like that, whatever your reasons were, disagreement etc...

The previous answers were completely wrong, that's why they got removed.
Nothing personal, I just don't see a reason to keep them - why, to confuse users? (who may read only the first answer)

wrong or not you could have just said it instead of deleting the posts; I'd love to delete all the posts I disagree with on this forum, those I believe are wrong etc...why am I wasting time explaining the basics... imagine the chaos. You're doing that because you technically can, nothing personal may be but that's very unpleasant. The OP can read and would have read your post too. You don't see a reason to keep them? here is one: we posted them, period.

This is not about disagreement - the answers were simply wrong, thus confusing for the original poster. The fact that they were from you... didn't make them that previous.
Posting the right answer a number of posts blow doesn't really help - the whole thread gets confusing and chaotic, as you say, so it's better to clean up a bit.

I'm not deleteing posts very often (though some of your posts would really deserve it - because you often tend to be rather harsh to anybody with a different opinion than yours) - but for a completely wrong information, I'll do what I feel is the best to provide the correct info, no matter who posts them.

Anyway, we got quite far off-topic here... so I believe that's enough.
