The '''Common Log File System''' ('''CLFS''') is a special purpose file (sub)system designed for transaction logging and/or recovery. The CLFS is not a file system in the traditional meaning of a disk file system, but more of a logical (special purpose) file system that operates in combination with a disk file system like [[NTFS]].
