Filesystems HOWTO

Next Previous Contents Version 0.7.5, 22 August 2000

This small HOWTO is about filesystems and accessing filesystems. It is not Linux- or Unix-related document as you probably expect. You can find there also a lot of interesting information about non-Unix (file)systems, but Unix is my primary interest 🙂

2. Volumes

3. DOS FAT 12/16/32, VFAT

4. High Performance FileSystem (HPFS)

5. New Technology FileSystem (NTFS)

6. Extended filesystems (Ext, Ext2, Ext3)

7. Macintosh Hierarchical Filesystem – HFS

8. ISO 9660 – CD-ROM filesystem

9. Other filesystems

10. Raw partitions

  • 10.1 Backing up raw partitions using DBsnapshot
