So, I have been trying to find somebody who's implemented a filesystem for the unmanaged drives. I know what you must be thinking, just use the managed drive then, I'm legit doing what a managed drive does. However, for a few projects, I've wanted or needed an unmanaged filesystem. One example, is an expanded raid with minimal overhead. The simplest sort of raid, just glue all the drives together in one long linear addressable space. That parts easy, just check what section the pointer is on, and forward the operations to the proper disk. The issue is, they require that they be unmanaged, otherwise the "glue" doesn't work. Has anybody seen, or maybe is working on, an implementation of a filesystem for unmanaged drives. I searched here and elsewhere, but couldn't find anything. I'm also terrible at understanding filesystems myself, otherwise I would try and implement this. Thanks for any information you can provide me.
Description: I am wanting to use unmanaged drives more but need a file system like driver for it and a bios for an eeprom that is not based on OpenOS Devfs Function: I would like basic file management e.g. read, write, move and delete files (directories are optional) as well as an loader program that loads a file from OpenOS to the drive (this is optional) and a small bios for an eeprom to load a file like the default lua bios where it loads init.lua or autorun.lua ( again optional) Deadline: I'm not too fussed, I would appreciate it as soon as possible but I am aware this is might be on the large side for a request. Additional Information: Simply ask me if you have other questions. Thanks in advance!
