Ext2 Partition is full in FC3 but not XP?

  • Weird issue- Im using the latest greatest 0.24 for read/write between winxp and fedora core 3.
    I have a 120gb drive partition paritioned with ext2 using mkfs on FC3 - 111gb usable space

    The drive currently has 9gb free space when being used in WinXP but when it was at 4gb of free space in XP FC3 showed the partition as full. Any ideas on why this could be happening? 

    • Not a FS guru, but apparently 5-10% of an ext2 partition is reserved for root so a system can still be booted and repaired when the drive fills up. Ext2FSD ignores that, I guess?

    • interesting- thanks i will look into it
