Is V5R2 IFS exclusively Type2 now? If not, you may need to convert the IFS to use the new implementation.

While this works fine, it's very inefficient. Here's my question: 1.) Is there a way to improve space allocation in the IFS ? I don't know of one. 2.) Would this be a case where a user defined file system would be warranted ? All input is appreciated. Regards, Richard Schoen RJS Software Systems Inc.
