6.2. Converting to an Ext3 File System

The tune2fs allows you to convert an ext2 file system to ext3.

To convert an ext2 file system to ext3, log in as root and type the following command in a terminal:
tune2fs -j block_device
where block_device contains the ext2 file system you wish to convert.
A valid block device could be one of two types of entries:
Issue the df command to display mounted file systems.
