File System file formats and Mac OS X

This means that you can view the structure of the disk, open and rewrite the files on your drives, but will not be able to save them, as well as write new files on a disk. PC-users will be curious and helpful to know that the name PC-drive, which you see when you connect, is the name that was given to him when creating (formatting). At the Makah no letter drives, for example, D or C. As an identification disk always used his name, and if that is PC-drive, the name will be used as that in Windows called the label. Therefore, instead of drive D, we get the disk or SYSTEM ARCHIVE or terrible name from the default Windows, like FGHYJN009890. Svezhepriobretenny disk before always and in all formats the file systems. Wheels for Maka usually formatted as HFS + (another modern name - Mac OS Extended Journaled) - a "native" file system Poppy. Permanent use different mechanisms for compatibility with strangers file systems do not add Maku efficiency. In addition, install Mac OS X on anything other than HFS +, you can not. If you need to format the external media to be connected to different systems, format it as FAT32 (MS DOS File System). This will drive universal. To work with disks you can use the Disk Utility, sold with Mac OS. Is it in ApplicationsUtilities. This comprehensive program to perform all the basic work with discs: disc is divided into several logical, formatting, disc treatment, if there any setback, and even the creation of RAID array. In most cases you will be quite this utility functions. Determination of the type of file Now is lyrical digression and do a little talk about one particular historical HFS +. Existing currently operating systems are its history over the last dozen years, and their subsequent release - improved and supplemented old. For example, Windows 95 first appeared in the year, but, in reality, it is even more heiress old system - DOS, designed for the very first PC, and UNIX systems originate, almost since the first flight into space. In the family of Poppy also existed a "dinosaurs", now it is called Mac OS Classic. But, instead of innovations and improvements, Apple has developed a new system - Mac OS X, actually writing it from scratch. So, among surrounding her elders, Mac OS X just a young girl - her first version appeared only in 2000. In designing the new system specialists from Apple had to take into account issues of compatibility with both the old Mac OS, to ensure the transition of old users, as well as with Windows, to attract new with the dominant platform. To determine the type of file system uses three different approaches at once. The system HFS, as described above, any file consists of two parts: the contents of the file and information about the type of file. This information is stored at a separate location - branch resources in the form of a special text tags. That is the principle unlike Windows, which is determined by the type of file extension name. The approach Apple has a significant advantage - how would you did not change the name of the file, you can not change its affiliation to one or another type, minimising the risk of accidental errors. However, the approach is described and disadvantage. Popular file transfer protocols via e Int rnet do not support the system HFS +. When sending a file by e-mail information about the type of file disappears along with the branch resources. This means that makovskie send files via the Internet can be used only with special poppy-archives.
