What is Linux Root Directory & root folder?

What is Linux Root Directory & root folder?


Hi Guys,

The root directory  contains all other folders in the drive or folder, and can, of course, also contain files. You can visualize this with an upside-down tree where the roots (the root folder) are at the top and the branches (sub folders) fall below; the root is what holds together all of its lower items.

The root folder, also called the root directory or sometimes just the root, of any partition or folder is the "highest" directory in the hierarchy. You can also think of it in general as the start or beginning of a particular folder structure.

In a computer file system, and primarily used in the Unix and Unix-like operating systems, the root directory is the first or top-most directory in a hierarchy. It can be likened to the trunk of a tree, as the starting point where all branches originate from. The root file system is the file system contained on the same disk partition on which the root directory is located; it is the file system on top of which all other file systems are mounted as the system boots up.
Now i am going to describe about Linux root directory (/) that what is the function of given directory in structure.
