Projects / cromfs


Cromfs is a compressed read-only filesystem for Linux. Cromfs is best at archiving gigabytes of big files that have a lot of redundancy. It aims primarily at achieving a strong compression, even at the cost of memory and CPU time resources. It uses the LZMA compression algorithm from 7-zip and block merging.
