    Inode is a unique number given to a file in Unix OS. Every file in Unix has a inode number. unix treats
    directories/folders as a file so they are also having a inode value.

    Hello Dear
    1. The inode is a fundamental concept in the Linux and UNIX filesystem. Each object in the filesystem
    is represented by an inode.
    2. An inode is a data structure on a traditional Unix-style file system such as UFS or ext3. An inode
    stores basic information about a regular file, directory, or other file system object.

    An inode is a data structure on a filesystem on Linux and other Unix-like operating systems that stores all the information about a file except its name and its actual data. A data structure is a way of storing data so that it can be used efficiently.

    Hello,

    In a Unix-style file system, the inode is a data structure used to represent a filesystem object, which can be one of various things including a file or a directory. Each inode stores the attributes and disk block location(s) of the filesystem object's data.
