Is arrangement of file systems will differ if we copy a file from FAT 32 to ext 3 ?
I have mounted my Windows partition so that I can access it from Fedora 3. Now I have a question which is unknown to me. It is that Windows uses FAT 32 and Linux uses ext3. There are huge difference between the formation of those two file systems. Now, if I want to copy a file which is actually located in FAT 32 partition (i.e. Windows partition) to my ext3 partition (i.e. my Linux partition), what will hapen to the arrangement of file due to different files systems? Is the file will be arranged same like the arrangement which it was used in FAT 32 or it will be completely agrrenged with new ext3 file system?
