ext3

ext3

ext3, or third extended filesystem, is a journaled file system that is commonly used by the Linux kernel. The journaling capability means no more waiting for fsck's or worrying about metadata corruption.

It is the default file system for many popular Linux distributions, including Debian. ext3 was originally released in September 1999.

Ext3 partitions contain a used space of 5% for special reasons by default. The main reason is so root can log in even when the filesystem becomes full.
