1 - About

A file store is a volume or partition in which files are stored.

For example, in a native (OS) file system, are considered file stores:

  • on the Windows platform, c: or d: are file stores.
  • On the Linux operating system, / (root) and mounted directories .

File systems are used on data storage devices to maintain the physical location of the files. Beyond this, they might provide access to data on a file server by acting as clients for a network protocol (e.g., NFS, SMB, or 9P clients), or they may be virtual and exist only as an access method for virtual data (e.g., procfs).
