Good question whitb as Aminet as no reference

Even Google only points to specific files within the Linux O. S. or other custom PC security systems

Please check your point of reference pvt Beano

Unless of course one of our more technical wizards, has the answer of course

Started looking through Google and suddenly I saw

Did you mean: Install Amiga "NFS file system"

Are you sure you mean NDS not NFS. Saying that I've never heard of either of them

I think he meant NFS, D being so close to F.

Regularly used file systems on the Amiga are:

OFS - Old/ordinary file system
FFS - Fast File System
AFS - Ami File Safe
PFS - Professional File System (commercial successor of AFS)
SFS - Smart File System

NFS stands for Network File System, an early SMB-style way of accessing files from other computers on a network.

Guess he means NSD, not NDS

-> http://www.aminet.net/search.php?query=nsdpatch

Btw. that´s no FileSystem, it´s just a patch to make HDs >4GB usable with FFS

Such a patch is not available.

NSD is something completly different. NSD adds commands to devices which makes them identify themseves. Using NSD commands you can ask a device whether it is trackdisk, audio, timer, serial, parallel, etc. type device.

It also adds commands to use drives bigger than 4GB, yes. But it does not magically make FFS use them. The file system has to support them, too. So you need a patch for FFS, too. AFAIK there is no such patch freely available. The only version of FFS which uses NSD is V44 which comes with OS3.5 or 3.9. And OS3.5 and 3.9 already include NSD, so you don't need to install it seprately.

There is another patch for FFS on Aminet which makes it use TD64 commands, but these are different to NSD and NSDPatch does not support them. (It adds NSD commands to TD64-cappable devices, but not vice versa.)

With NSDPatch on 3.1 and below you better use SFS.
