FAT/NTFS/Ext4 USB Drive Experimental Test Results!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 8, 2013
Which is the best format for a USB drive? I tested a 500 GB USB-2 hard drive using Ubuntu 13.04. Here are my speed / access time results,
So is there any real difference here? The differences are small and I suspect that if I did a re-test, the differences would change around. So which is the best format?
I use Ubuntu, Mint and Virtualbox for XP. All work OK with any of these formats. Perhaps FAT32 and NTFS may need degrags whilst Ext4 does not - is this correct? To defrag I'd have to do this through a XP VM. What other criteria differentiate these formats?
Thanks in advance!

Convert ext4 to NTFS?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 12, 2011
I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook instead of Windows (clean install). I would now like to install Windows 7 over Ubuntu, but I first need to convert the main partition from ext4 format to NTFS format. However I am unable to format the partition to NTFS, as I first need to unmount, but I can't do that because it is my main partition. Anything I can do to change the partition filesystem?
Ubuntu Server AMI, by default EXT4 How to convert to XFS for consistent backup?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 11, 2011
Hi everyone. I'm a fairly unexperienced Linux user so bear with me please I loaded an instance of ami-06ad526f (11.04 Ubuntu Server, 32-bit) and have set it up as a LAMP for my blog.
By default the ami is formatted as EXT4 - how exactly would I go about transitioning to XFS instead? The reason I want to do this is because the backup utility I plan on using (ec2-consistent-snapshot) supports XFS and also others (such as EXT4) by using fsfreeze, but for some weird reason - fsfreeze is not included in the AMI and I can not find out where to get it. SO, it would be much easier for me to just convert to XFS so the backup utility can use xfs_freeze.
The question is how, I am guessing you can't convert on a live file-system so my best guess is to take a snapshot, create a volume from this snapshot, attach and mount it to my current instance and use some tool to convert to XFS? I am guessing that this will also empty the drive, if true, I will just create an additional EBS and format it as
restore "changed" NTFS partition to ext4 with Disk Utils
- date: September 22, 2011
Hello! Thank you for trying to help me!
I did it! Edited the partition type with Ubuntu's Disk Utils:
-> selected Linux (0x83) from HPFS/NTFS (0x07). On restart, couldn't mount it (/dev/sda5). Edited back to NTFS, nothing.
testdisk sais MFT (master file table) and MFT mirror are damaged.
??? Is there any way to reverse what I did with Disk Utils? Do you know any Linux data-recovery tools?

rsync issue ext4 to NTFS USB drive
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 2, 2013
I am trying to do a cron with rsync, to bakup a certain folder to a NTFS formatted USB Harddisk
I use rsync -av .. .. for this.
Although nothing was changed in the source directory, I get following result:
a huge list of directories and subdirectories, followed by:
sent 2173361 bytes received 136330 bytes 90576.12 bytes/sec
total size is 134506888816 speedup is 58235.88
I think that for some reason, the directory information do not match and are being updated. Or maybe rsync is just too verbose.
How can I avoid this.
Reason I want to avoid this, is because now the log is cluttered with all the directories, and I do not see what was really backed up.
