Re: EXT3 Reserve Space


I think problem is solved. Actually i am checking the sizes in gparted and it is showing wrong value for 'USED' field.

Now i check the sizes using df and it shows correct sizes.

The version of e2fsprogs is:


I used the following command to create an ext3 file system

mkfs.ext3 -m 0 /dev/sda2

Thanks to all of you for your time and sorry for confusion.
