In this video, Kevin Dankwardt discusses a wide variety of special features for mounting and formatting ext4, XFS, and Btrfs file systems. He demonstrates making and mounting ext4 file systems with special options.
- [Instructor] Linux has lots of file systems…and the file systems have different features and options,…and flags you can give when you mount or when you format.…So you really should check out…the documentation like the man pages.…There's overall information about file systems…in section five, man five file systems.…Ext4, which covers both ext2, ext3, and ext4.…The previous ones as well.…
Xfs and Btrfs, and notice it's section five in the manual.…It just says man btrfs you might get the wrong one.…The btrfs in section eight is some commands.…Btrfs in section five is about…the btrfs file system, mount options, and so forth.…One way file systems can differ is in performance.…So there's lots of benchmarks you can look at to see.…And it might be a different choice…depending on your circumstance.…
Like how big your files are and so forth.…So ext2, 3, and 4 have been around a long time…and have a great reputation for reliability.…And of course the newer ones, like 3 and 4…newer than 2 and so forth, have not only new features,…
