Could it be added to sfs (or ice) that on overwriting a file an entry in the recycled dir is created?
AFAIK both SFS and IceFS do recycle files when overwritten
using the MODE_NEWFILE mode. Many applications use
MODE_READWRITE, followed by setting the filesize to 0
instead, which is not recycled, probably because it is a bit
more work to make this work in the filesystem. And no other
filesystems support it either. But I'll see if it can be
added to IceFS in future. It was on my mind once, but more
important stuff came up.
