Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.

This Novell NetWare operating system feature maximizes disk space. If there are any partially used disk blocks (usually a block is 8KB in size), NetWare divides them into 512-byte suballocation blocks for the storage of small files or fragments of files.

For more information, see "Novell NetWare File System" and "Volume and Partition Management."
