A semiconductor non-volatile mass storage memory is partitioned into user files and system files. The system files partition is further subdivided into clusters, each cluster having a plurality of sectors. Each cluster stores the system file for a single predetermined LBA. As the information within the LBA is changed, the new information is written into an empty sector within the cluster. Once the cluster is filled, the system either erases for recycling the cluster or preferably locates an empty cluster and repeats the process with that new cluster. Once all the clusters are filled, all clusters containing old data are erased for recycling.
