SharpGrip FileSystem is a versatile .NET file system abstraction that supports multiple storage adapters. It empowers developers to manage various file systems and services through a unified and easily comprehensible API. By coding against the abstractions provided by this library, developers can sidestep vendor-specific APIs, effectively avoiding vendor lock-ins. This flexibility enhances the portability and maintainability of the codebase, allowing for smoother transitions between different file systems.
