File storage in cloud deployment and Enterprise needs of File based storage are growing rapidly in today's IT environment. Filesystem enables application programs to store and retrieve user data files, and applications have data dependence on the filesystem to guarantee user with correct and accurate information. Therefore, filesystem has to maintain metadata consistency across many data structures that actually points to filesystem objects such as metadata files, application files and directories. In both offline and online filesystem check, traditional approach has been to check metadata consistency across all the filesystem objects. But we are proposing an alternative method to guarantee all-time consistency on selective filesystem objects.
