Does FreeBSD 5.3 have any issues with reading/writing to EXT2/3 partitions?


Title says it all, it's because I plan to use FreeSBIE, which is based on FreeBSD 5.3, to move some files from my 200 GB EXT3 drive to a 250 GB UFS2 drive.

You can read ext3, but not write to it in FreeBSD.

Okay, thanks for the tip, just wanted to make sure, because hosing the drive with all my data would be sooo stupid!
