Join Scott Simpson for an in-depth discussion in this video Create, modify, and mount filesystems, part of Linux Foundation Cert Prep: Storage Management (Ubuntu).
- [Instructor] Once we have a partition on a device,…we need to add a filesystem to it…in order to store and keep track of files.…Filesystems act like, well, filing systems,…keeping track of pieces of data…that we refer to as files and information…about those files.…It also provides a system for keeping files organized,…or rather, presenting the lists of files…that it knows about in a way that makes sense to us.…There are many different kinds of filesystems,…most of which Linux supports natively.…But support for others can be added as well.…
In this video, we'll take a look…at the more common filesystems on Linux…and leave exploring the exotic ones aside.…Probably the most common filesystems…that you'll see are called Ext2, three, or four,…depending on which version…of the extended filesystem you're using.…X2, Ext2, or the second extended filesystem,…started out in the early 90s,…and it's pretty standard across Linux installations.…There was an extended filesystem before it,…but it wasn't used for very long.…The third extended filesystem adds support for journaling…
Join instructor Scott Simpson, as he shows how to manage and optimize file storage on Ubuntu Linux. First, learn how to create, modify, and mount partitions and filesystems, and manage swap space. Scott then combines these basics into more sophisticated solutions using volume management, and shows how to secure Linux storage and configure disk quotas and backup policies.
