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

Subject: ** IFS Disk Space Allocation **

Hello All, 

We're doing an image file conversion for a customer on V5R2 and I am 
noticing that the IFS will often times allocate about 30-40% more disk 
than it really needs for each file that gets stored. 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.
