Files-11, also known as on-disk structure, is the file system used by Hewlett-Packard's OpenVMS operating system, and also (in a simpler form) by the older RSX-11. It is a hierarchical file system, with support for access control lists, record-oriented I/O, remote network access, and file versioning.
Files-11 is similar to, but significantly more advanced than, the filesystems used in previous Digital Equipment Corporation operating systems such as TOPS-20 and RSTS/E. It is also a clear predecessor of NTFS. Many of the concepts used in Files-11 appear in NTFS.
