XFS file system

XFS (Extents File System) is a 64-bit, high performance journaling file system for Linux. It was initially created by Silicon Graphics for its IRIX OS, but the code was later donated to Linux. XFS works extremely well with large files and it is known for its robustness and speed.

XFS supports filenames of up to 255 bytes, files of up to 8 EB and file systems of up to 16 EB.

An XFS file system cannot be shrunk.
