What is a Vault?
The key functionality CBFS Vault provides is the ability to create and store an entire filesystem (complete with files, directories, metadata, and much more) in a standalone container called a vault.
A vault is typically stored as a real file on a local disk (similar to, e.g., an SQLite database file), but applications can technically store it using any data location by using Callback Mode.
Internally, a vault's storage space is divided up into chunks of equal size called pages. A vault's page size is specified at creation-time, and cannot be changed later. Applications do not have direct access to vault pages, but awareness of their existence is helpful for understanding certain component APIs.
