OLD POST. IGNORE
If my root
/ is ext4, how do I change
/some/other/directory to ext3?
Assuming this is possible, please explain how a directory of one type can exist in a directory of another type.
I have a directory
/some/directory which is partitioned using ext4. It contains a directory
/some/directory/subdirectory which I wish to change to ext3.
My plan to do so is to create a new partition of type ext3, more the contents of
/some/directory/subdirectory to the new partition, and mount it to the now empty
/some/directory/subdirectory Is this the proper way to do so?
