In order for computers to store information on hard drives, floppy disks, cds, tapes, etc otherwise known as electronic media, the computer has to understand where the information is stored and how to read that information. File system data formats are technical descriptions on how the information can be accessed. This category is used to collect information on different file formats for three purposes. These purposes are Educating programmers so that they can make full use of the file systems they work with, providing reference material for compatibility and providing information for the creation of new file systems.
