No NTFS doesn't calculate a checksum. Take a look at Does Windows calculate CRCs to check every file operation? and in the Wikipedia file comparsion table In the How NTFS Works Technet article you will learn how NTFS works.
[Link to the "Microsoft Windows 2000 Administrator's Pocket Consultant"] You really should be reading more recent documentation. Take this for example. [parent object:] I guess in the case of folders this could mean the parent folder, but what would this mean in the case of files? In a rough approximation, the parent object of a file is the folder ...
Enable file system auditing for each and every event that you want this to trigger on. Then, create an event trigger with a script attached to it for each relevant event ID (this is insane, btw). Or, you could just periodically use a regular backup tool like everyone else does. Plenty of vendors use snapshot-based continuous backup with 5 minute protection ...
There is no one definitive way for them to get out of order, it can happen a few different ways.

Command-line utilities (I'm thinking xcacls, I believe) that ...
Poweroff your VM, backup the VHD, and run another virtual machine (I use SystemRescueCD since it's small and fast) that has the ext4 partition available to it, i.e., a HD for SysRescue (but don't mount it!). From the SysRescue VM, run 'zerofree' on the ext4 partition, poweroff that VM, and then use your Administration Website to compact the VHD.
If you want to do it in Powershell you can install [Powershell Community Extensions (PSCX)] and use their Get-Privilege and Set-Privilege cmdlets. $p = Get-Privilege $p.Enable('SeRestorePrivilege') Now you can browse to the problem directory and see who owns it, and even change it.
The process appears to be Backup your current VHD file. Use Snapshot manager to delete/merge any snapshots. Zero fill the unused disk space viz sudo apt-get install secure-delete sudo sfill -llz . This creates a file called oooooooo.ooo filled with 0s. You should repeat the sfill command on all partitions I guess. Note this isn't quick either, it ...
