Abstract With the increasing amounts of information people are subjected to, the need to better archive and retrieve this information is becoming more important. The hierarchical file system being used today is beginning to show its limitations for handling large amounts of documents. The hierarchical design cannot handle multi category archiving. Over time the hierarchy will become too shallow and list too many results per folder, or too deep, hiding documents in deep branches. An alternative to the traditional hierarchical file system, the MetaFS is tag based and metadata aware. Files can be organized with tags and found again later by using drill-down on the tags through a Virtual Hard Drive (VHD) interface, to be backwards compatible. For those hard to find files, metadata search is available, using a metadata driven drill-down technique for narrowing down search results.
