How to Create Partition from Ext4 File System

You know that when you purchase computer with 1TB or something else hard disk, you have to split that much memory into different section to store system files, your own media files or anything else. Each section is called a partition.

Assume that you have made three logical partitions plus one primary partition and used 700 GB in total. Perceptibly, you cannot use the entire 1024GB for your working purpose of your 1TB HDD. However, the remaining “can be used” memory will be rehabilitated into Ext4 file system automatically and will be there in your same HDD.

When we buy a 1TB HDD, we often think that what we will do with so much memory. However, after few days of using that memory, we comprehend that 1TB is very not as much of. At such moment, we often try to upsurge the memory or create a new partition to store more data. Moreover, this where Ext4 file system comes in.

Ext4 file system is the short form of Fourth Extended File System and started with Linux Kernel 2.6.19. You can store a single 16GB file in an Ext4 file system and create 1EB file system easily. (1 Exabyte is equal to 1048576 Terabyte)
