    Creating a filesystem.


    I want to know, in theory, how a filesystem is created?

    I mean, do u devlop the fs ON another fs in its development stage?

    What tools do u use?

    USe asm or C?

    Is developing a fs just thinking of a way to store files and thats it?

    A file system is simply a set of rules which software go by and behave. You can create a FS in your head.

    Implementing support for your FS in software is a different topic...
