Hi Vansh,

Currently, FAT is the only supported file-system on Mirage/Xen:


If your needs are simpler then you could also implement your own
scheme. The file queue example you linked just stores the files
sequentially on the disk, which is fine for a queue.

If you want to help build something better (e.g. to support Irmin),
the ocaml-btree project is under development:
