Hierachical storage Filesystem

Welcome to the hierachical storage filesystem.

This project aims to create a simple way of managing a vast amount of data over multiple CD-R media.

This is done by creating a virtual filesystem simulating all files on the CDs as if they were online on the harddisk.

When a file is accessed, a dialog box asks for the correct CD. So any program can be used to acces the data without needing to know the files are on CD.

This is based on FUSE which you have to install first
