What format is linux system reserve?

Hi there,

Third question in the last 24 hours, however this is of urgency! I do apologise for my noobyness!

I'm cloning my Ubuntu 12.04 setup from my laptop to my main pc using CloneZilla - I've formatted a bigger partition on my main pc as ext4, however on the second partition for linux system reserve, what file system is that? Is it still ext4 or something else? I can't access it nor is it identified in CloneZilla!

At a guess it will be a swap partition

For some reason or not I knew the answer to that but didn't think properly. It's amazing how much stress can overwhelm you.

Thank you.
