An archiving file system is specifically designed to support the storage of, and access to, remote files stored on high speed, large capacity network data servers. The archiving file system automatically archives remote files across multiple types of secondary storage media on such network data servers based on a set of hierarchically selectable archival attributes selectively assigned to each remote file. The archiving file system is completely transparent to the user program and operates on remote files by providing a different file control program and a different file structure on the network data server, without the need to modify the standard file system that is native to a particular operating system program executing on the user nodes or the standard network file interfaces executing on the distributed computer network environment.
