File Systems

The File Systems collection contains File System plug-ins for various types of file system.

A File System plug-in is used by the File Server to access directories and files in a particular format, such as FAT. You do not have to implement ports of the File System plug-ins that Symbian platform provides. The base port must include the appropriate file systems plug-ins for the types of file system that your phone uses.

A file system plug-in uses the Local Media Subsystem to call the media drivers that read and write the physical storage media, such as MMC. The Base Starter is responsible for mapping local drives to drive letters and for loading the appropriate file systems on local drives.
