I was planning to use a second hard disk as a backup for documents and files. I'm not sure what format to use ext4 / ntfs / ufs to be able to access it from FreeBSD and Win10 since I have dual boot. When I was using Linux I used a program from Windows to access ext4., But with ufs I don't know...
After a force restart, the (mounted) [ext4] filesystems became unaccessable,
- on FreeBSD-12.1,
- using ext2fs kernel module.
The [ext4] filesystems became not mountable (by superuser),
The error message was: "mount: /dev/... : Operation not permitted"
As fsck (standard) does not work on ext...
You can mount linux ext4 drives on Freebsd using fusefs-ext2 package
# pkg install fusefs-ext2
Enable the fuse kernel module
To enable loading FUSE kernel module at boot add
fuse_load=YES line to the /boot/loader.conf file
# vi /boot/loader.conf...
I am finally migrating from Ubuntu Linux to FreeBSD!
I recently removed Ubuntu 16 and installed FreeBSD 11 in its place.
I have close to 3tb of data on an ext4 external HDD. My goal is to copy all of its files to my UFS drive.
I mounted both the ext4 drive (with ext4fuse) and the...
I have a USB flash drive with ext4 mounted by ext4fuse:$ mount | grep fuse

This is going to be short. I write this tutorial, because a lot of tutorials mention ext4fuse. While it works for some things one experiences quite a few oddities.
Examples of problems I experienced:
everything has only read permissions
it is possible cd into non existing directories
I have a new 1TB portable USB hard-drive that will be used to share data among FreeBSD, CentOS, and Ubuntu machines (all OS's are kept up-to-date). The hard-drive is probably pre-formatted with NTFS but I've had problems with that filesystem in the past and I hope to find something that is more...
