Release 1.18 of e2fsprogs is available!
On November 10, 1999, version 1.18 of e2fsprogs was announced.
The following Ext2fs Utilities are
- e2fsprogs, which consists of
e2fsck, mke2fs, debugfs, dumpe2fs, tune2fs, and most
of the other core ext2fs filesystem utilities.
- dump, which will allow you to make backups of your ext2
filesystems. It uses a format which is compatible with the
BSD dump and restore programs.
- defrag, which will defragment your ext2 filesystem
- ext2ed, which is a text/windows interface for examining and
editing an ext2 filesystem. It's a little bit easier
to use than debugfs, although debugfs is a more powerful.
- MountX, MacOS
driver which allows you to mount ext2 filesystems (Linux and
MkLinux) on the Macintosh.
