Ext3 2 ReiserFS


Is there a util out there that will convert my ext3 filesystems over to reiserfs?

Don't know about a util, but as long as you could move your data to another partition momentarily, couldn't you just use "mkfs"?

True, however it's a couple Gigs of software and to cp all the files then copy them back would add about 30 - 60 min to the job whereas a simple conversion could be done in 15.
