Changing ext4 to ext3
I have a ext4 backup partion on my HDD and I would like to install Musix Distro.
My question is can my ext4 be converted to ext3 when I install Musix, thanks

I'm not sure you can convert from ext4 to ext3 without formatting. You can go from 3 to 4, but I'm not sure you can go back. Why do you want to change it?

AFAIK, there is no direct way to Downgrade (from ext4 to ext3). You have to copy data to another location and reformat partition to ext3.
Maybe other way exists but I am not aware that.

The long and short of it is I have Ubuntu Studio installed and to many problems with jackd2, so I thought I would install Musix as it works fine and has the rt kernel but Debian Lenny dosn't read ext4.
I have in the passed gone from ext3 to ext4 without any problems but never the other way
