Dave,

   Knowing nothing about btrfs and not being a computer professional, I just
searched the Web for information and found the btrfs wiki. It's apparently
under heavy development (originally designed by Oracle), but has no fschk
capability. This leaves data vulnerable to system/power crashes, but the
site notes that they're working on such a repair capability which will
address this shortcoming.
