I am very interested in F2FS, so I installed
f2fs-tools (File System For SSD/nand drives)
So my questions are:
- How do I use it?
- Is it safe to use?
- Can I format a USB drive with F2FS and again, would that be safe?
I spent the day yesterday fiddling around with F2FS. Yes, you can format any partition with mkfs.f2fs in f2fs-tools. But neither the graphical nor the non-graphical installers will recognize it. So all you can do is use it as a data partition.
Since (g)parted regards it as an unformatted partition, they will successfully reformat it.
I'm eagerly awaiting the ability to try putting / on an F2FS partition, even if /boot has to remain ext4. Much of my testing is done with SDHC cards in netbooks.
