Comparison of file systems

The following tables compare general and technical information for a number of file systems.

New!!: F2FS and Comparison of file systems · See more »

Data compression

In digital signal processing, data compression, source coding, or bit-rate reduction involves encoding information using fewer bits than the original representation.

New!!: F2FS and Data compression · See more »

Data deduplication

In computing, data deduplication is a specialized data compression technique for eliminating duplicate copies of repeating data.

In the maintenance of file systems, defragmentation is a process that reduces the amount of fragmentation.

Embedded system

An embedded system is a computer system with a dedicated function within a larger mechanical or electrical system, often with real-time computing constraints.

New!!: F2FS and Embedded system · See more »

File system

In computing, a file system (or filesystem) is used to control how data is stored and retrieved.

New!!: F2FS and File system · See more »

Filesystem-level encryption

Filesystem-level encryption, often called file/folder encryption, is a form of disk encryption where individual files or directories are encrypted by the file system itself.

Flash file system

A flash file system is a file system designed for storing files on flash memory–based storage devices.

New!!: F2FS and Flash file system · See more »

Flash memory

Flash memory is an electronic non-volatile computer storage medium that can be electrically erased and reprogrammed.

New!!: F2FS and Flash memory · See more »


The system utility fsck (for "file system consistency check") is a tool for checking the consistency of a file system in Unix and Unix-like operating systems, such as Linux and OS X.

In concurrent programming, an operation (or set of operations) is atomic, linearizable, indivisible or uninterruptible if it appears to the rest of the system to occur instantaneously.

New!!: F2FS and Linearizability · See more »


Linux (pronounced or, less frequently) is a Unix-like and mostly POSIX-compliant computer operating system (OS) assembled under the model of free and open-source software development and distribution.

Linux kernel

The Linux kernel is a Unix-like computer operating system kernel.

linux.conf.au (often abbreviated as lca) is Australasia's regional Linux and Open Source conference.

List of file systems

The following lists identify, characterize, and link to more thorough information on computer file systems.

Log-structured file system

A log-structured filesystem is a file system in which data and metadata are written sequentially to a circular buffer, called a log.

New!!: F2FS and Log-structured file system · See more »


NILFS (New Implementation of a Log-structured File System) is a log-structured file system implementation for the Linux kernel.

Samsung Electronics

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (Korean: 삼성전자; Hanja: 三星電子) is a South Korean multinational electronics company headquartered in Suwon, South Korea.

Secure Digital

Secure Digital (SD) is a non-volatile memory card format developed by the SD Card Association (SDA) for use in portable devices.

New!!: F2FS and Secure Digital · See more »

Snowball effect

Metaphorically, a snowball effect is a process that starts from an initial state of small significance and builds upon itself, becoming larger (graver, more serious), and also perhaps potentially dangerous or disastrous (a vicious circle, a "spiral of decline"), though it might be beneficial instead (a virtuous circle).

New!!: F2FS and Snowball effect · See more »

Solid-state drive

A solid-state drive (SSD) (also known as a solid-state disk though it contains no actual disk, nor a drive motor to spin a disk) is a solid-state storage device that uses integrated circuit assemblies as memory to store data persistently.

New!!: F2FS and Solid-state drive · See more »


The terabyte is a multiple of the unit byte for digital information.

New!!: F2FS and Terabyte · See more »

Trim (computing)

A Trim command (known as TRIM in the ATA command set, and UNMAP in the SCSI command set) allows an operating system to inform a solid-state drive (SSD) which blocks of data are no longer considered in use and can be wiped internally.
