It isn't "separate" from user libraries and licensed programs and documents and streamfiles and user profiles and everything else that can be seen; all of those things are *IN* the IFS. It just seems to be too often that "the IFS" is written about as if it's unrelated to QSYS or QDLS or whatever. By definition from the IFS Introduction manual: "The integrated file system is a part of OS/400 that supports stream input/output and storage management similar to personal computer and UNIX operating systems, while providing an integrating structure over all information stored in the AS/400." "...all information..." When talking about the IFS, it must be remembered that it covers multiple file systems and each one can have different characteristics. Sorry. I just get nervous when I see this over and over.
