Semantic file systems enhance standard file systems with the ability of file searching based on file semantics. The users interact with semantic file systems not only by browsing a hierarchy of directories but also by querying as information retrieval systems usually do. In this paper, we argue for a new file system paradigm, the semantic file system. We identify the issues in designing a semantic file system and propose an ontology- based solution for these issues.
