Restore mechanism for a multi-class file system

Image Number 17 for United States Patent #8127095.

System and method for performing optimized restores of a multi-class file system. More actively accessed data may be assigned to higher storage classes and less actively accessed data may be assigned to lower storage classes in the multi-class file system. In a restore, the higher storage class(es) including more actively accessed data may be restored first. The multi-class file system may then be brought online for access by application(s). The lower storage class(es) may then be restored. In one embodiment, if a request for data that have not been restored is received, the file system may obtain an estimated time until restore of the requested data from the restore mechanism. The file system may then notify the application of the estimated time until restore. The application may notify a user of the estimated time, and may generate another request for the data after the estimated time has elapsed.
