NTFS journals metadata so the file system itself doesn't corrupt if the machine goes down. I read this is not the case for file data itself. But what if the data is only appended at the end of the file? I think databases do this, so presumably it's safe, but I couldn't find documentation. I want to resume downloads safely after power on.
