File System

  1. The method for storing and retrieving files on a disk. A file system defines the directory structure for keeping track of the files and the path syntax required to access them. It also defines the way files are named as well as the maximum size of a file or volume. FAT, FAT32, and NTFS are file systems used on PCs, while HFS is used on Macs. Some operating systems support several; for example, Windows 2000 can use either FAT32 or NTFS.
  2. A data processing application that manages individual files. Files are related by customized programming.
