UDF file system facts 

In 2021 we funded a fsck_udf command to recover corrupt UDF file systems, which was completed by reinoud@.

UDF's important because it's open and patent free. It's usually used on DVD/BR, but it can be used on anything else too.

It supports Unix permissions, unlike FAT. Unlike exFAT, it's patent-free for everyone, not just Windows and Linux.

Most OSes support UDF 1.02, but in NetBSD we support R/W up to version 2.60.

Consider formatting your shared drives with UDF. 馃槂


UDF file system facts, part 2 

The NetBSD UDF driver is used on the PlayStation 4 and 5. Unfortunately bugs we fixed in the past have got in the way of people hacking their PlayStations. Sorry everyone. 馃様
