Fuse-xfs is a MacFuse (OSXFUSE) driver for XFS filesystems. This driver allows Mac OS 10.7 with OSXFUSE/MacFuse to mount XFS filesystems in readonly mode.
The journal is ignored, but basic read only operations should work fine.
This software should be considered alpha, and provides no guarantees that the XFS filesystem remains unaltered (although the code does not support writing in any way). Use of the software is entirely at the users own risk.
Not bad ! But read only and 7 Mb/s (12% of USB2 capacity). Native and transparent = nice.
I have a mid-2010 iMac running Mac OS X 10.8.2 (Mountain Lion), and can confirm in tandem with OSXFUSE, this XFS driver works as stated. Just connect your SGI XFS formatted disk, and it will automatically show up in the finder as a connected drive. Just remember it is _read_ only, but if Mac OS X is your main platform, it saves a trip booting into Linux or Windows just to access your data. I have used fuse-xfs / OSXFUSE to access an XFS formatted USB drive with files backed up from my NAS - a Buffalo LinkStation Duo Pro (Model LS-WVL/E, Firmware v1.64). If your NAS formats drives in XFS, this driver may also work for you, but Buffalo LinkStation owners beware, your internal drive(s) will probably _not_ mount due to a special format used, which is not the same vanilla XFS used for external USB backups. Finally, please also note that your transfer speeds may not be as fast as expected for the interface you have used to connect the drive. For example on a SATA to Firewire 800 adapter, I saw speeds of roughly 20-22 MB/sec. Nonetheless, it is very convenient to be able to copy the files in the native OS X Finder UI.
Génial. Merci beaucoup. J’ai pu récupérer les données d'un disque externe XFS en toute simplicité.
Worked great! I was able to get data off an old XFS volume I found without going to the trouble of finding or creating a Linux host. Great work, devs, and thanks!
