Mount a USB ext4 drive ?

Post by maiis » Fri Feb 28, 2014 10:53 am


Is there any way to mount a USB drive formated in ext4 ? I want to copy the content to the NAS, taught it would be faster by USB.
I already have ffp installed.

There is no ext4 module for that old kernel (, but AFAIK ext4 is downcompatible to ext3 (and so also to 2). You might be able to mount it as ext2/3. For filesystem integrety you'd better mount it read-only:

Code: Select all

mkdir /tmp/mountpoint
mount -t ext2 -o ro /dev/sdc1 /tmp/mountpoint
