TrevorH This a a question that falls under "Curiosity". My buddy and I were talking tonight and he informed me that ext4 may not the best file system for SSD's. Of course he and I have been using ext since ext2. XFS seems to be the preferred file format. ext4 may be OLD and showing its age but has always been reliable. IF xfs is a better file system is it possible to convert ext4 --> xfs??
