FILE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

It is used to store, manage and to access the data from the text files.

And the text files will be stored in file system or operating system.

There are several drawbacks of using this file management system. Some of the drawbacks are:

1.No Security

2.Concurrency is not possible

3. Execution will be slow

-> Concurrency means multiple users and clients can access the same information from the server system in a network.

-> Concurrency is possible only when the systems are in network.

To overcome the drawbacks of file management system, the DataBase Management System is introduced.
