How can I convert ext4 to ext3 without formatting

A Platform of Medical Industry

Posted 09-30-2009 at 02:14 AM by teddybrown ("Medical reform" to bring the medical equipment industry in 2009)

I came cross a platform especially about medical industry. It is from China. There are various kinds of medical equipments and supplies, such as autoclaves, dental unit, Ecg Machine, Pluse oximeters, ultrasound scanners, and so on.

So we buyers can find the best manufacturers or suppliers, and make a deal.
Ooh, sorry to let you all know what site...
