New Features

File System

The file system used by Windows Vista is primarily NTFS.

In Windows Vista, NTFS no longer tracks the Last Access time of a file by default. This feature can be enabled by the user if desired via setting the registry key 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem\NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate' to '0'. Note that this feature has been around since as early as Windows 2000 [1].

Registry

The Windows Registry remains a central component of the Windows Vista operating system.
