  • Since disk space is limited, we need to reuse the space from deleted files for new files, if possible.
  • To keep track of free disk space, the system maintains a free-space list. The free-space list records all free disk blocks.
  • To create a file, we search the free-space list for the required amount of space and allocate that space to the new file.
  • When a file is deleted, its disk space is added to the free-space list.
