The following names are reserved: If the FAT table is not regularly updated, it can lead to data loss. Access control list Filesystem-level encryption Permissions Modes Sticky bit. For this reason, large drives which will carry lots of files are usually partitioned into multiple logical drives when used with the FAT file system, leading to complications in storage management. Later Windows versions do not ship with this driver. However, since HPFS lacks a journal , any recovery after an unexpected shutdown or other error state takes progressively longer as the filesystem grows. Cannot be used to perform defragmentation, file undeletion or other tasks which require writing to the disk.

How Do I Undelete Files?

Overview of FAT, HPFS, and NTFS File Systems

Hfps the drive so that you have a C: Tell us what we can do to improve the article Submit. The disk is in use or locked by another process In order to perform analysis of the drive, CHKDSK has to open the entire drive for exclusive use as though it was a file.

That is, the following scheme will not work: Under DOS, if you don’t explicitly write to the disk surface, hprs former file’s location will not be overwritten, and the file can be recovered.

The error message looks like this: Comparison of file systems distributed Unix filesystem. On FAT, you need to buy additional utilities, and even then, there are no guarantees. For this reason, large drives which will carry lots of files are usually partitioned into multiple logical drives when used with the FAT file system, leading to complications in storage management.


The name must start with doa a letter or number and can contain any characters except for the following: Undelete utilities try to directly access the hardware, which cannot be done under Windows NT. In fact, in early benchmark tests I conducted using Clipper on eComStation 2.

The larger the drive, the larger the cluster, so that for a drive in the range of 1 – 2 GB, a cluster can typically consist of 64 sectors or 32 KB worst case, PC DOS 4.

What is High-Performance File System (HPFS)? – Definition from Techopedia

Adding them later can push your CD-ROM drive letter up, and since eComStation remembers the letter of the drive it was installed from to later install printer drivers, etc. Reasons for open files include: For further discussion of FAT advantages, see the following: This is because it is dangerous in a multitasking environment to allow, e. It is also highly tunable by experienced administrators.

But under eComStation, although you may act promptly to recover the file, the space which it occupied may already have been reused by the system, for swap file growth, INI files, temp files, or data saved from otherapplications.

This entry in the FAT table either indicates that this is the last cluster of the file, or points to the next cluster. First, with versions of DOS before 4. ZIP or its equivalent.


Indonesia Bahasa – Bahasa. A utility such as CHKDSK would need to scan each entry in the filesystem to ensure no errors are present, a problem which is vastly reduced on NTFS where the journal is simply replayed.

High Performance File System

Start by removing all partitions on the hard disk back up data if necessary. HPFS was designed to hpds on the weaknesses of the file allocation table file system.

The following names are reserved: However, you should note that the FAT filesystem allocates storage space in units called clusters, which are groups of adjacent sectors. The alternative technique is to use a utility designed doe partition and logical drive management such as Powerquest’s Partition Magic.

This means that the content of a file is located at most 8 MB distant on the disk surface from the structures which control access to it. HPFS is a much better design. The advantages of HPFS include: Retrieved 11 June More of your questions answered by our Experts.
