Deleting Reserved Space on Doc Partition
 
Heya,

I have a partition I use solely for documents to share with Windows. It is currently FAT32, but I would like to reformat it as ext3 since I really don't use Windows much, and ext2IFS works beautifully, anyway.

So my question is: can I safely reduce the reserved space to 0%, or some other small amount if 0 is not possible? I'm familiar with tune2fs, I'm just not sure whether a non-system partition needs this space or not.

Thanks!

Yes. Perfectly safe.
