    Preserving your existing Home partition when installing a new distro

    TxLonghorn,

    You are correct.

    I must admit that I was assuming that most people now use ext4.

    I have modified the blog accordingly.

    Thanks.

    Preserving your existing Home partition when installing a new distro

    This is all sound advice, and thanks for the contribution.

    I have one little warning to add. If you follow this:
    Quote:
    For sda3 (existing home partition):

    It is essential to make some changes. Do NOT ignore it, otherwise your home partition will not be preserved.

    Highlight the partition, click on Change, select Leave the size the same, select Use as: ext4, do NOT click on the box for Format the partition. Leave the format box empty.
    it will work just fine - if your /home partition is already formatted as ext4.

    However, if your /home partition is ext3, selecting Use as: ext4 will format the partition. The only way to prevent the formatting from happening is to chose the same format as the existing format.

    beachboy2--

    So if I'm understanding you correctly, then it is possible to save your settings from your previous installation without having to manually install the previous settings.
