Join Mike Meyers for an in-depth discussion in this video File systems, part of CompTIA A+ (220-902) Cert Prep: 2 Putting Pieces Together.
- The CompTIA A+ covers a lot of different file systems.…Some of these file systems are like 30 years old,…and some are being used in the…most modern operating systems today.…So, why are we covering so many file systems?…Well, there's a good reason for that.…We still use a lot of old file systems.…File systems have evolved over…the 30 plus years that the PC has been around.…We've had new features come out,…we've had storage devices with…bigger technologies and bigger capacities come along,…and as a result, we've have needed new file systems…to take advantage of all these new features.…
So, what we're going to be doing in this episode is…covering all the file systems you're going to be seeing…on the A+, but before we dive in too deeply,…I want to talk about something that…confuses people quite a bit.…Now, if you've been watching other episodes,…you know that the file system acts as the intermediary…between the operating system and your storage media.…Now, every file system in existence uses…some form of allocation table.…
In Part 2, Mike Meyers helps you understand all the pieces that comprise the modern computer: RAM, power supplies, hard drives, and peripherals. Though 220-902 focuses on operating systems and software, a solid foundation in hardware will help you understand how all the pieces fit together. In Chapter 5, Mike shows how to build a basic PC, and install a fresh copy of Windows.
