Hi,
why isn't this fantastic archiver/filesystem ( http://bisqwit.iki.fi/source/cromfs.html ) running in 'kernel space'?
thanks.

looks like that is abandoned, and there are other similar filesystems available.

thanks pan64.
Unfortunately, others lack the crucial functionality "Near-identical file detection" or block-level deduplication.

oh well.
