= Conventional File Systems =
; [[ext2]], [[ext3]]
: ext2 was introduced with [[Linux]]. ext3 is a journaled version of ext2 which allows for speedy disk recovery after a crash.
; [[FAT]]
: Originally used by [[MS-DOS]]. Includes [[FAT12]] (for floppy disks), [[FAT16]] and [[FAT32]].
; [[ffs]]
: The '''Fast File System''' used by some BSD versions of [[UNIX]] and from which [[UFS]] was derived supporting faster disk access and [[symbolic link]]s like ffs.
; [[HFS]]
: Used by [[Apple]] systems, it has been succeed by [[HFS Plus|HFS+]].
; [[JFS]]
: IBM's Journaled File System introduced with their flavor of UNIX (AIX)
; [[NTFS]]
: The '''New Technology File System''', introduced by [[Microsoft]] with [[Windows NT]] 4.0. Now used on [[Windows XP]].
; [[reiserfs]]
: A journaling filesystem for Linux.
; [[UFS]]
: The '''Unix File System''', introduced with [[UNIX]].
; [[XFS]]
: [[SGI]]’s high performance journaling filesystem that originated on their [[IRIX]] (flavor of [[UNIX]]) platform. XFS supports variable blocking sizes, is extent based, and makes extensive use of [[Btree]]s to facilitate both performance and scalability. Additionally, support is also provided for real-time environments.
= Cryptographic File Systems =
'''Cryptographic file systems''' encrypt information before it is stored on the media. Some of these file systems store encrypted files directly. Others are better thought of as device drivers, which are then used to store some of the file systems discussed above.
; [[File Vault]]
: A clever user interface to [[Apple]]'s encrypted disk images. Uses the ".sparseimage" extension on disk files.
; [[CFS]]
: Matt Blaze's '''Cryptographic File System''' for [[Unix]].
