Custom filesystem format - Last Modified 2008-07-16 22:10 UTC - Created 2008-07-16 22:10 UTC

Some musings on what my own custom file system would look like:
File location start address 64-bits 8 bytes 16 exbibyte maximum volume size
File length 64-bits 8 bytes 16 exbibyte maximum file size
Filename 8 * 2 * 255 = 4080 bits 510 bytes Each character is UTF-16 encoded, 2 bytes / character, 254 characters maximum (character 255 is the null character)
