Amazon.com Senior Software Engineer Interview Question

I interviewed in Seattle, WA and was asked:
"One of the interviewers asked me to implement a file system. What was in particular frustrating is that he left is so open ended as to the level of detail required, yet expected a specific answer and was unhappy that I took a different approach."
