I'm looking to create a loopback device for local temporary backup storage. This will be used to store ~1000 files in ~20 directories.
I understand I'd need to use the
mkfs command along the lines of:
mkfs -t ext2 [ fs-options ] /path/to/image
What I don't understand is:
- What fs-options options are available for an ext2 filesystem?
- Whether the defaults, whatever they may be, would be acceptable?
- What fs-options might be suitable for my needs?
