Title: (EN) MOVING DATA FROM FILE ON STORAGE VOLUME TO ALTERNATE LOCATION TO FREE SPACE
Abstract:
(EN) To reconstitute a ghosted file for use, a single ghosting filter on a computing device locates ghosting information in the metadata of the ghosted file and locates within the ghosting information an identification of a particular ghosting manager of the computing device, where the identified ghosting manager is responsible for the ghosted file. Thereafter, the ghosting filter communicates to the identified ghosting manager a request to obtain data of the ghosted file from a corresponding alternate location, and the identified ghosting manager does in fact obtain such requested data from such alternate location. Upon receiving the requested data of the ghosted file from the identified ghosting manager, then, the ghosting filter reconstitutes the received data to the ghosted file. The single ghosting filter is generic to all of the ghosting managers of the computing device.
