2.2. Creating an ext3 File System

After installation, it is sometimes necessary to create a new ext3 file system. For example, if you add a new disk drive to the system, you may want to partition the drive and use the ext3 file system.

The steps for creating an ext3 file system are as follows:

  1. Format the partition with the ext3 file system using mkfs.

  2. Label the partition using e2label.
