A file system and method of file access are disclosed. In a particular embodiment, a method is performed at a host device coupled to a non-volatile memory, where the host device includes a memory having a first file data structure. A first directory entry in a file directory of a file system is located where the first directory entry corresponds to a first file stored in the non-volatile memory. First data associated with the first directory entry, including first location data indicating a location of the first file in the non-volatile memory, is retrieved and stored in the first file data structure. A request to open the first file is received. In response, the first location data of the first file is retrieved from the first file data structure and data of the first file from the non-volatile memory is read. First metadata associated with the first file is extracted from the data read from the non-volatile memory.
