FileSystemStorage (FSS) is an Archetypes storage for storing fields raw values on the file system. This storage is used to avoid unnecessary growth of the ZODB's FileStorage (Data.fs) when using a lot of large files.

Please note that FSS is a Plone component for content types developers. Do not expect anything more in your Plone site if you don't use Plone components that may use FSS, such as AttachmentField.
