The OS moves its file system from one consistent state to another consistent state (if all fails then it's the same state). Isn't that called an atomic transaction?

Note that this principle doesn't hold for folders even when it's on the same disk. Sometimes a folder can't be moved and an empty folder is created but the old one is locked while the files aren't moved.
