In the afternoon I decided that in the evening I was going to
install Ubuntu 9.10, also known as Karmic Koala, on my
mother-in-law's computer. But I needed something easy to put a
backup on of the
/home directory, which has two
accounts, one for Esme and one for her mother. Since we have
an old 256MB USB pen drive we hardly use I decided to reformat
it to the ext3 file format so I could copy the files and preserve
the file attributes and owners; both Esme and her mother have
an account on that computer.
Read the rest of Formatting a USB flash drive as ext3.
