Decoding the APFS fi le system

  title={Decoding the APFS fi le system},
  author={Kurt H. Hansen and Fergus Toolan},
File systems have always played a vital role in digital forensics and during the past 30e40 years many of these have been developed to suit different needs. Some file systems are more tightly connected to a specific Operating System (OS). For instance HFS and HFSþ have been the file systems of choice in Apple devices for over 30 years. Much has happened in the evolution of storage technologies, the capacity and speed of devices has increased and Solid State Drives (SSD) are replacing…

Recursive Updates in Copy-on-write File Systems - Modeling and Analysis
A typical COW file system model based on BTRFS is proposed and its correctness is verified through carefully designed experiments, which found that write amplification is greatly affected by the distributions of files being accessed, which varies from 1.1x to 4.2x.
Mac OS X and iOS Internals: To the Apple's Core
This indispensable guide illuminates the darkest corners of the internal workings of Mac OS X and iOS, starting with an architectural overview, then drilling all the way to the core.
Practical File System Design with the Be File System
This new guide to the design and implementation of file systems in general and the Be File System in particular covers all topics related to file systems, going into considerable depth where traditional operating systems books often stop.

This tutorial of B- tree techniques will stimulate research and development of modern B-tree indexing techniques for future data management systems.
An Arithmetic Checksum for Serial Transmissions
An error-detection method for serial transmissions is presented that uses an integer arithmetic checksum that is a bit weaker at detection but is more efficient, thus representing a different and potentially useful choice in rhobust-benefit spectrum.
