When there is a need to store a sparse matrix into a file system, is it worth to convert it first into some space-efficient storage format? This paper tries to answer such question for the Adaptive-Blocking Hierarchical Storage Format (ABHSF), provided that the matrix is present in memory either in the COOrdinate (COO) or in the Compressed Sparse Row (CSR) storage format. The conversion algorithms from COO and CSR to ABHSF are introduced and the results of performed experiments are then presented and discussed.
