ext3 journal location


Dear all,
I am asked to skip journals from backup. But I do not know where to find them.
Can you please help me?
I am on Redhat 4U4.
best regards

Who is asking you to do this?---and why?

The journal for something like ext3 is kept as part of the filesystem structure and would not be seen by typical backup utilities.

What SW are you using for backup?

It means that is data associated with the filesystem, and it's nothing that backup tools should worry about. Backup tools deal with files, and that's all you need to backup.

That is, unless you use a disk imager like ghost or dd.
