Removable Storage Checkpoints

A removable Storage Checkpoint can "self-destruct" under certain conditions when the file system runs out of space.

See Space management considerations.

After encountering certain out-of-space (ENOSPC) conditions, the kernel removes Storage Checkpoints to free up space for the application to continue running on the file system. In almost all situations, you should create Storage Checkpoints with the removable attribute.
