Hello! I have a single 200GB HD that is divided in three partitions, one with FreeBSD, another with Linux and the other with my media. The first two are 10GB, and the latter, 180GB.
The problem is that it is a ReiserFS partition, not writable from FreeBSD, so I'll have to change it to, say, ext3, if I'm going to be able to use xMule again. Since I can't backup the whole thing, I'll have to use another method to "convert" it. I'm using quotes because apparently there is no such utility that converts a given partition to another type. Why is that so? I was thinking about the hard links. Since the partition has some free space and its file hierarchy is quite simple (eg, mp3/baroque/bach/bwv82_1.mp3), wouldn't it work if I resize it to be full, using the freed space to create a new partition, and then, until the first one is empty, move content from it to the newly created, resizing both so that the first one is full again? Anybody ever tried something like that? Are there utilities that could help out, or dangers I need to avoid?
