Back up on ext3 partition with ext2fsd?

  • Anonymous - 2006-10-23

    I wander if using ext2fsd to backup data on ext3 partition (USB HDD) is reliable ? Do I risk data incosistency or in particular >previously, correctly written file< ?
    Or is it better to switch to FAT32.
    In fact I chose Ext3, because I heard that FAT32 can quite often cause problems. But I'm not sure. Maybe I should just chose ext2?
    I will access this "back-up" partition from Windows and Suse Linux 10.1.

      Fisrt, I don't recommend. But Ext2Fsd is really worth for a try if you don't manipulate your vital data.

      I have the ext2fsd already started on my working computer, for all vital data, I also store them into another computer.

      Everyone is welcome to be a volunteer to test Ext2Fsd. Thank you.
