APFS module for linux, with experimental write support (out-of-tree repository)

Apple File System

The Apple File System (APFS) is the copy-on-write filesystem currently used on
all Apple devices. This module provides a degree of experimental support on

It's supposed to work with a range of kernel versions starting at 4.9 or before,
but only a few of those have actually been tested. If you run into any problem,
please send a report to <[email protected]>.

To help test write support, a set of userland tools is also under development.
The git tree can be retrieved from <git://github.com/eafer/apfsprogs.git>.

Known limitations

This module is the result of reverse engineering and testing has been limited.
You should expect data corruption. Please report any issues that you find.

Apple has released other versions of the filesystem to the public before the
current one. I would not expect them to be compatible with this module at all,
but I am open to fixing that if requested.

Many features are not yet supported:

 o Encryption.
 o Compression, though the compressed contents of a file can be read from the
   'com.apple.decmpfs' and 'com.apple.ResourceFork' xattrs as long as they are
   under 64k.
 o Restoring to a snapshot.
 o Access control lists. This is not a priority.


In order to build a module out-of-tree, you will first need the Linux kernel
headers. On Debian, you can get them by running (as root):

  apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

Now you can just cd to the linux-apfs-oot directory and run


The resulting module is the apfs.ko file. Before you can use it you must insert
it into the kernel, as well as its dependencies. Again as root:

  modprobe libcrc32c
  insmod apfs.ko


Like all filesystems, apfs is mounted with

  mount [-o options] device dir

where 'device' is the path to your device file or filesystem image, and 'dir'
is the mount point. The following options are accepted:

	Volume number to mount. The default is volume 0.

  uid=n, gid=n
	Override on-disk inode ownership data with given uid/gid.

	Verify the checksum on all metadata nodes. Right now this has
	a severe performance cost, so it's not recommended.

	Enable the experimental write support. This WILL corrupt the container.

So for instance, if you want to mount volume number 2, and you want the metadata
to be checked, you should run (as root):

  mount -o cknodes,vol=2 device dir

To unmount it, run

  umount dir

Work was first based on reverse engineering done by others [1][2], and later
on the (very incomplete) official specification [3]. Some parts of the code
imitate the ext2 module, and to a lesser degree xfs, udf, gfs2 and hfsplus.

    While preparing to add this kernel module to NixOS, I tried to build it for all kernels in Nixpkgs and it failed for three kernel versions. The README states, that this is supposed to work with kernel version 4.9 or before but it fails to build on 4.4.273, 4.9.273 and 4.14.237. The error message for Linux 4.14.237 boils down to

    /build/source/dir.c:652:2: error: implicit declaration of function 'discard_new_inode'
      652 |  discard_new_inode(inode);
          |  ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    and the error message for Linux 4.4.273 and 4.9.273:

       23 |  SB_RDONLY = MS_RDONLY;
          |  ^~~~~~~~~
    /build/source/apfs.h:23:2: error: type defaults to 'int' in declaration of 'SB_RDONLY'

    I don't really care about those kernels. You should decide if you want to fix this or not as I can of course just exclude building this module with those old kernels in Nixpkgs. Please either fix the compilation or update the README. As always, I'm happy to try to compile any patches you may develop.

    This looks like something has changed in the kernel to which linux-apfs needs to be adapted to.

    However I looked into super.c then and found a piece of code which detects kernel version:

            bdi_dev = nxi->nx_bdev->bd_disk->bdi;

    I tried deleting the whole part and use bdi_dev = nxi->nx_bdev->bd_disk->bdi; (i.e. the one for Linux 5.15+) only and it compiled successfully. That's pretty wired since I'm on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9 and my kernel version is 5.14.0.

    Is there any way to work it out? Thank you for your work!

  • Feedback for NixOS test

    Feedback for NixOS test

    The last missing piece for perfect NixOS integration is a NixOS module. This will allow awesome things like specifying

    fileSystems."/mnt/apfs" = {
      device = "/dev/disk/by-partlabel/apfs";
      fsType = "apfs";

    in the configuration, which is all that is required to automatically mount the filesystem during boot, no need to install anything or configure anything else. As part of writing a NixOS module, it is good practice to write a test for a basic sanity check and to gain some confidence, that at least the basic stuff all works as expected. Here is how the test looks currently:

    import ./make-test-python.nix ({ pkgs, ... }: {
      name = "apfs";
      meta.maintainers = with pkgs.lib.maintainers; [ Luflosi ];
      machine = { pkgs, ... }: {
        virtualisation.emptyDiskImages = [ 1024 ];
        boot.supportedFilesystems = [ "apfs" ];
      testScript = ''
        machine.succeed("mkdir /tmp/mnt")
        with subtest("mkapfs refuses to work with a label that is too long"):
          machine.fail( "mkapfs -L '000102030405060708090A0B0C0D0E0F101112131415161718191A1B1C1D1E1F202122232425262728292A2B2C2D2E2F303132333435363738393A3B3C3D3E3F404142434445464748494A4B4C4D4E4F505152535455565758595A5B5C5D5E5F606162636465666768696A6B6C6D6E6F707172737475767778797A7B7C7D7E7F' /dev/vdb")

              "umount /tmp/mnt",
              "apfsck /dev/vdb",

    Most of the space in the file is taken up by a Python script. The strings passed to machine.succeed() are shell script one-liners that all need to succeed for the test to succeed. The test builds a qemu VM with an empty 1GB disk image, loads the APFS kernel module and then executes the tests. Here is the NixOS test for ZFS. It basically tests smb file sharing, encryption and forefully importing a pool on a machine with a different host ID, for two versions of ZFS and the Linux kernel. I'd like to hear your feedback, if you think this is an adequate amount of testing or if you would test more or test less? Should I maybe reboot the VM somewhere during the test? Maybe test long filenames? Call apfsck more often? Create a whole bunch of files and see if any disappear? Something else entirely?

    I am on Arch, so I simply downloaded linux-headers from pacman, cloned the repo, cd'd into the repo, ran make and got this error:

    Did I miss something?

    EDIT: in /lib/modules I have a folder called 5.13.12-arch1-1... Do I need that specific version for this to work?

  • Label does not seem to work

    Label does not seem to work

    The label of an APFS filesystem does not seem to show up anywhere. The steps I tried:

    1. modprobe apfs
    2. truncate -s 1G /tmp/test.img
    3. losetup -f /tmp/test.img
    4. mkapfs -L testing /dev/loop0
    5. lsblk -f does not show a label for loop0
    6. ls -la /dev/disk/by-label does not show loop0
    7. mounting the filesystem does not change the situation

    I don't think this is a problem with mkapfs because an APFS filesystem created with macOS also does not show a label in Linux and copying /tmp/test.img to a macOS machine and mounting it does show the label.

    This issue is probably very low on your TODO list. I just wanted to know if it is a known issue and if I did something wrong or if this is supposed to work.

  • Enable writes using a module parameter

    Enable writes using a module parameter

    It's quite inconvenient to manually enable writes by running mount everytime. Can we have a module parameter as well so that they can be enabled or disabled as per users wish by default? The experience imo shall be better. Obviously there is a risk associated but the user shall be knowing what they are doing if they use the parameter.
