    i'm still trying to figure out why You want the Avast to disable USN journal for other drives

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USN_Journal

    it's part of NTFS specification for over 10 years and not used just by Avast btw.

    only corruption i can imagine to happen on USN Journals is from some outdated very badly written NTFS driver (some older ones for DOS,nix)

    but i think NTFS-3g from http://www.tuxera.com/products/ntfs-open-source/
    should be fine

    same goes for Ubuntu default ...

    anyway it would be interesting to know
    1. what goes wrong exactly
    2. when (what OS or program does it)
    etc
