What is File System?


Solution 1

File System:

A filesystem is the methods and data structures that an operating system uses to keep track of files on a disk or partition; that is, the way the files are organized on the disk. The word is also used to refer to a partition or disk that is used to store the files or the type of the filesystem.

Solution 2

1) The file system allows the user to define files and directories so that disk space can be allocated and de-allocated to each file.

2) The operating system uses files for information storage. Files are mapped by the operating system onto physical devices

3) A file is a collection of related information. Each file is having name and extension depending upon file type.
