I was curios to know what happens when I copy files from a VFAT32 formatted disk ( formatted under Windows system ) into the Linux system.
Does the files which are copied in the linux system automatically converts into the ext2/ext3 filesystem?
If yes, what about the permissions? Are the attributes such as readonly, hidden, users permission etc also converted?
Is there a possible way to see the conversion going on by seeing the kernel log messages ( perhaps by activating the debug options etc )?
