French term or phrase: journal
This may be a silly question, so I apologize in advance.

This is from a document entitled "Liste des plateformes et des systèmes à récupérer – Durée de récupération".

All the documents in this job revolve around Business Resumption/Recovery Plans in the case of a network breakdown.

This word appears in a column under the heading "Disk Units." The column to the left has the heading "Activities" and under that is written "System Configuration."

I know that JOURNAL means LOG in this context. My problem is that everything else in the column is already in English.

1 - NEWDISK
2 - NEWPACK
3 - OPS
4 - LOGPACK
5 - DEV
6 - SORTPACK
7 - DSSPACK
8 – JOURNAL
9 - WAREHOUSE
10 - EASYLOCK

Do you think JOURNAL still be changed to LOG?

Explanation:
When talking about file systems, journal is something different than log. The journaling feature of a file system is a special king of log that prevents data from being lost in case of power failure or crash.
