    B-tree is used in databases and file systems. Databases are generally huge and cannot be maintained entirely in memory, b-trees are used to index the data and to provide fast access.
    B-tree structures are also used in file systems. Directories are indexed in NTFS. Indexing makes searching of specific entry fast. They are stored in a B-tree in alphabetical order.
