Which file system format used?


#1

Hi,

Simple question, what file system format is used for the data partition of the MyBook World Edition? It being a Linux device does it use ext3?

Thanks in advance,

Ian

It uses EXT3 which is a Linux partition type. It uses Samba to emulate an NTFS drive to windows in order to make it networkable.

Actually, while the Linux OS partitions on the “white light” MBWE are EXT3, the user data partition is XFS.

See here => http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xfs and here => http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ext3 to compare.
