I have an old
/home partition, that dates back to former linux systems, and it is still in ext3 format. Whereas the rest of my system,
/ and some other mounted point are devices formated in ext4.
I have grasped some sites on the net that describes how to convert an ext3 partition to an ext4.
In this UL.SE question Can I convert an ext3 partition into ext4 without formatting?, there are also warnings recommending backup of the data before convertion... if ever...
So I wonder if is generally a good idea to convert an existing ext3 partition to ext4. I know it's possible, I know there is a little risk that need a back up if ever. Are there enough benefits such that I should do it ?
