File System Upgrade - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Carl <co.nz> shaped electrons to say:  Why not use the partition in FAT32? It's supported by the kernel and only lacks real permission and ownership bits. There isn't (AFAIK) a tool to convert FAT32 in-place to any known Linux format. -- Gregory G.

    Default File System Upgrade

    Hi does any body know how to convert a hard drive format from fat32 to ext2
    with out moving all the data off the disk, and is there much chance of data
    loss?

    i only using ext2 for example any linux format is cool


    Thanks

    Not a chance to do this. The filesystem is amazingly different. Do you
    need pointers on tools to do the transfer, or suggestions on making it
    painless? And if it's to use the same files under Linux, you know that
    Linux can easily mount and access those files in fat32 format?
