If I kill a running
e4defrag, is there a risk of data loss/corruption? Is there a safe way to interrupt it?
For example: running
e4defrag on large partition (such as the root directory) or large file (such as a squashfs system image file) is very slow, so sometimes, stopping/killing
e4defrag before it is done is needed, but I'm not sure whether killing it (by sending either of
SIGKILL, etc. to it)
e4defrag is safe?
I'm running Debian Stretch and the filesystem is ext4.
