General :: Ext4 New File System Mounting Compatibility With The Older Ext3 Type?

Sep 7, 2009

How well is the ext4 new file system mounting compatibility with the older ext3 previous Linux installations ? I refer to Ubuntu 9.04 and the new Fedora 11 which have the option to install with the ext4 file format. Will it be better if I install with the older ext3, so that I will be able to mount all other Linux from each other in a multi-boot system ?

General :: Mounting An Ext3 File System Destroys Superblocks?

Jun 27, 2010

I have an image of an ext3 file system done with dd. I know that the file system is corrupted but I want to try to recover some files. Whatever I dd it again to the original partition or assign the dd image to a loop device, that's what happens:

- dumpe2fs -h gives me a valid ext3 superblock.

- as I try to mount the device read only, it fails with a bad magic number error.

- executing dumpe2fs -h again gives bad magic number error.

- trying debugfs or fsck with backup superblocks fails the same way.

For me it seems that in spite of mounting the device as read-only, mount command do something wrong with the superblock as before the mount the superblock is correct and it's there.

Server :: Mounting Ext3 File System As Ext2 On Slackware With Custom Build Kernel?

May 16, 2010

I just rebuild the kernel for slackware 13, everything works, but root file system which is ext3 is mounted as ext2. Normally I've build ext3, ext4 and so on as modules, not in the kernel... but if I do this, then the kernel mounts the file system as ext2, which is build in the kernel. I also modified rc.modules so I can make sure that ext3,ext4,jbd are loaded, but it doesnt work.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mounting A NTFS Raid 0 Device?

Dec 27, 2010

let's say this system has 3 hard drives. Drive #1 and #2 are RAID 0 and Windows7 lives there. It is a hardware RAID, not software.

On Drive #3 Ubuntu has been installed using WUBI - it boots up and works okay - but it does not see the RAID array.

Do I just need a linux driver to be able to see & mount my "Windows" RAID0 array? Or is this even possible? Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Ubuntu :: Changing File System Type To Another Filesystem Type - Does It Effect On Data?

Feb 4, 2011

In my system around 73gb(pc-desktop) i have,1 primary partition(windows)-25gb, 1-extended partition(remaining gb) 3 logical partitions were there in (under) extended partition in one of the logical partition is d:drive. in my hard disk d: drive is -/dev/sda5

previosly i was fat -file system , (d:drive-/dev/sda5), i remember i changed the d: drive(d:drive-/dev/sda5) file system to ext4file system ,with following command using terminal

After doing(changing the file system)this one ,i couldnt see the d:drive data

By doing that

1q) Did i reformatted the partition? i think the new filesystem(ext4) has no knowledge of the data that was on it when it had a FAT filesystem.

2q) How to do undo operation,i tried to change the filesystem type to fat/ntfs in terminal using command --sudo mkfs -t FAT /dev/sda5.

Result:its showing text message-'mkfs.FAT: No such file or directory'(not in single quote)

I had very imp data in d:drive

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Mounting Device With Filesystem FAT16 - Error "non-existing Or Uknokwn File System"

Aug 27, 2010

an idea what might be wrong with fs 0x06 FAT16? I have a mobile, Sony Ericsson K750i, which was mounted in previous distributions without problems (up to 11.1). Now I use 11.2 and I am unable to mount it. I tried to do it via yast, but it says "non-existing or uknokwn file system" even it was recognized as 0x06 FAT16. I read that this fs is outdated, however still supported.

General :: Recover A Deleted File Using The Ext3 File System?

Jan 10, 2011

I used the ext3 format when I formatted my partition prior to installing Ubuntu10.10. I had accidentally deleted a file and began the process to get it back. It wasn't critical but helpful to recover the file. To make a long story short I ran into to some unexpected road blocks. I tried to use PhotoRec to get the job done but with no success.

I'm just looking down the road in the event I might have to recover something important.If it would be better going back to the Fat32 file system I would rather do it sooner than later. Just as a side note I am dual booting between linux and windows.

Ubuntu :: Corrupted EXT3 File System?

Feb 9, 2011

I am using Ubuntu since release 8.10, but it is first time when i can`t solve problem

when i tried to create new NTFS partition on unallocated disk space with Paragon Partition Manager (damn, that was stupid). Process was aborted with error (later i finally made it with Gparted without problems)

After reboot mine Ubuntu say:

Code:
Errors were found while checking the disk drive for /

Press F to attempt to fix errors, I to ignore, S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery. I pressed "F" but that had help only for a boot and doesn`t really fix error :`(

Later i booted from liveCD and had checked partition (/dev/sdb1; file system - ext3) with gparted (result - aborted fixing process with error) Now i can`t even boot from that partition and even mount it from other linux system.

mine fdisk -l
Code:
/dev/sdb1 * 1 5957 47849568 83 Linux - problematic partition (unmountable)
/dev/sdb2 5958 29983 192988845 7 HPFS/NTFS

[Code]....

PhotoRec recover most of my files, but i need complete partition.

General :: Mounting NTFS With Ntfs-3g And Fuse As A User?

Jan 8, 2011

On a clean install of Arch linux I edited fstab to be like so :

Code:

/dev/disk/by-id/usb-Hitachi_HTS543232L9A300_9002555dd84a21024b000000-0:0-part1 /media/EXT ntfs-3g user,rw,uid=mas,gid=users,noauto 0 0

I tried ntfs and ntfs-3g but the result is the same I can mount root but I would like to be able to mount as a user. When I try to mount as a user I get

Code:

Unprivileged user can not mount NTFS block devices using the external FUSE library. Either mount the volume as root, or rebuild NTFS-3G with integrated FUSE support and make it setuid root. Please see more information at [URL] Before installing ntfs-3g I was able to mount as a user but there was no rw permission. Any way to mount an ntfs partition as a user without suid as the message said?

Fedora :: Evaluate The Ext3 File System Performance

Apr 13, 2010

I need evaluate the ext3 file system performance; i need define:

- services provided
- parameters and
- the performance with different parameter values; for example, changin the value of the "data" parameter (journal, ordered, writeback).

I do not know what services ext3 provides. Well, i know intuitively that it provides services to read, write and erase files. But, there are anything more?. Where can i find the API?. Is the ext3 file system POSIX compliant?

Hardware :: Data Recovery On HDD - EXT3 File System

Aug 29, 2009

I accidentally formatted a HDD when I meant to format a USB thumb drive. The HDD is a 250GB drive that had about 180GB of data in the EXT3 format. I was actually attempting to make a bootable USB thumb drive with TRK (Trinity Rescue Kit). Kind of funny/ironic to mess up a drive while trying to make a rescue disk. Anyway, as soon as I realized what had happened, I pulled the drive out of the computer to make sure I didn't do anything else stupid to it. I have been searching for some way to recover and haven't really found much. There are a lot of programs to get Windows data back, but I haven't seen anything specific on the EXT3 file system.

General :: Mount A File System (/dev/sdb) As Ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)?

Jul 15, 2009

I'm trying to mount a second hard drive as a ext3 (rw_acl,user_xattr). I type the ff.:

# mkfs.ext3 -c /dev/sdb1(it seems to create a file system from this 2nd HD)

then type:

# mount -v /dev/sdb1 / type ext3 (it seems to mount it)

But when I check the ext3 systems with typing:

# mount -t ext3 (to check the list of ext3 devices, it gives me this)
/dev/sda1 on / type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)
/dev/sda2 on /home type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)
/dev/sdb1 on / type ext3 (rw)

How can I make /dev/sdb1 on type ext3 as (rw,acl,user_xattr) as the others?

Hardware :: Change My External Hard Drive's File System From Ext3 To Fat32?

Feb 9, 2010

i needed to change my external hard drive's file system from ext3 to fat32, to use it in windows, which i did the simple way: i shrunk the ext3 partition, made a fat32 partition, copied the files over, removed the ext3 and made the fat32 bigger. unfortunately, while gparted was making the partition larger, my computer shut down. i lost all my files and the partition messed up immediately. i made a new fat32 partition, after deleting the old one, but noticed that gparted was showing 100 gigs already in use (???). so now i have a 300 gb hard drive with only 200 gb i can use; i ran df to make sure gparted wasn't messing up, but indeed it shows the partition as being only 200 gigs in size. i haven't tried making any other kind of partition yet, such as ext3, for fear of losing my files again, and because it wouldn't be permanent anyway, because i need those files in windows and stupid microsoft won't make their OS ext3 compatible.
