is ext4 in kernel 2.6.30 stable enough to entrust it with data, or
should I better wait and stick with ext3?
I'm using ext4 since 2.6.28 and didn't have any problems with it.
Backups are always a good idea, not only the fs can fail, disks can
Yeah, one of the disks in my RAID-1 has failed, that's why I'm getting
two new WD5002ABYS disks to replace both of them tomorrow. They are 4
or 5 years old and the other one could fail any time and I don't have
a way to make a backup. I'm turning off the comp after writing this
Anyway, getting the new disks brings up the question which file system
to use. It seems you can convert ext3 to ext4 later, so I'm thinking
of using ext3 for now and maybe converting later. On the first glance,
there doesn't seem to be a disadvantage with doing it this way. Once
the new disks are installed, I can use the remaining old one to make
backups. It's not ideal, but better than no backup ...
