3.4 Sector #2: MiniFAT Sector

The mini FAT sector is identical to a FAT sector in structure, but instead of describing allocations for the file, the mini FAT describes allocations for the mini stream. The following is a chain of eight contiguous sectors.

MiniFAT[Sector #0]: 0x00000001: This sector points to the second sector of "Stream 1".

MiniFAT[Sector #1]: 0x00000002: This sector point to the third sector of "Stream 1".

MiniFAT[Sector #2]: 0x00000003: This sector points to the fourth sector of "Stream 1".

MiniFAT[Sector #3]: 0x00000004 : This sector points to the fifth sector of "Stream 1".

MiniFAT[Sector #4]: 0x00000005 : This sector points to the sixth sector of "Stream 1".

MiniFAT[Sector #5]: 0x00000006 : This sector points to the seventh sector of "Stream 1".

MiniFAT[Sector #6]: 0x00000007 : This sector points to the eighth sector of "Stream 1".

MiniFAT[Sector #7]: 0x00000008 : This sector points to the ninth sector of "Stream 1".

MiniFAT[Sector #8]: 0xFFFFFFFE = ENDOFCHAIN: marks the end of the "Stream 1" user-defined data.

MiniFAT[Sector #9 through #127] 0xFFFFFFFF = FREESECT: empty unallocated free sectors.
