CONFIG_OMFS_FS: This is the proprietary file system used by the Rio 
Karma music player and ReplayTV DVR. Despite the name, this filesystem
is not more efficient than a standard FS for MPEG files, in fact likely the
opposite is true. Say Y if you have either of these devices and wish to
mount its disk.

when the file gets overwritten, how different file systems handle that?

do they mark the old file as erased and create a new file or rather try to write the information to the same inodes? then what if there’s no space and the new file has bigger size? I guess it’s better to try to create a new file, in case of filesystems which avoid fragmentation.

in other words, is the probability to recover overwritten file smaller, than probability to recover erased file?

today I saw a directory with end of line in the name. when ls-d also the part of it were typed on the next line. (: I don’t know (only can guess) how this file appeared in this form.

Apparently Linux (and probably other Unix systems) allow usage of CR and/or LF in file names. if you manage to name a file like that.
