   		    Features of Ami-FileSafe
   		    ------------------------


 - AFS has much faster disk access than FFS.

 - AFS will store (On average) more data than  FFS on the same disk.

 - AFS gives vastly improved directory scanning.

 - AFS is SAFE - If you crash your machine whilst writing Ami-FileSafe
           partitions will not (unlike OFS & FFS) become invalidated
           or corrupt.
