Question Partition type question


When I run sudo blkid I get the following output and I am wondering what SEC_TYPE="ext2".

Quote:
terminator@terminator-desktop:~$ sudo blkid
[sudo] password for terminator:
/dev/sda1: LABEL="WINDOWS" UUID="4CA7-E543" TYPE="vfat"
/dev/sdb1: UUID="f117c6ed-5497-4cfe-8333-7a531d64b98b" TYPE="ext3"
/dev/sdb2: UUID="2d15cb8a-cdb2-42db-8a9d-c467fb2f36a6" TYPE="ext3" SEC_TYPE="ext2"
/dev/sdb3: TYPE="swap" UUID="0442cde4-9687-4f59-a6fb-cbf55812a724"

Secondary type.
You can mount ext3 as ext2.
Think of ext3 as an ext2 filesystem with a journal

Reference:

Whitepaper: Red Hat's New Journaling File System: ext3
