Hello,

What about it? What do you want to know? How to do it, or more information about it? Please edit your post and include what you exactly need help with.
Besides that, here is a forum based off of what we "know" so far........... http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...o-ext3-231740/

You have a manor in BedSide?

Usually I follow behind your posts, to see if the original poster will follow up with serious detail at your request.

Well, I know of no way to convert as such.

Normal way I do it. Copy data off and verify then format and return and verify.

Post a good question, with useful details. Did you not bother to read the sticky posts and other tips, which are very obvious, before posting??

Jefro hit it on the head. Copy your data off, format the disk, and copy it back. That's it.
