Be File System

The Be File System ( BFS; German Be File System) is a protocol developed by Be Incorporated for the BeOS operating system 64 -bit journaling file system. It is able to manage disks with a size of up to 2 Exbibyte. The maximum file name length is 255 characters. In this case, the speed of the file system is independent of the size of the managed data. This was accomplished by a database -like file system management. It supports metadata and associative file management.

Using BFS finds today in the development of BeOS, the ZETA operating system. The operating system Haiku offers OpenBFS a reimplementation of BFS, which is used in a modified form of SkyOS and is also provided by Syllable.
