Abstract:


SquashFS is a Linux compress filesystem. Hixosfs is a filesystem to improve file content search by using metadata informations. In this paper we propose to use Hixosfs idea in SquashFS context by creating a new filesystem HSFS. HSFS is a compress Linux filesystem to store metadata within inodes. We test our idea with DICOM file used to store medical images.
