Re: charset of ext3 drives
The FS is the last thing I dont understand: if the file name is a double
charset, how can the file name be stored without loosing information? Do
know what I mean?
It would appear to me that the charset selection only determines
how the characters will be displayed, wouldn't it? The filename would be
only a stream of characters that would not vary although the appearance
would perhaps change as different charset's were selected. Or did I miss
something about the way filenames are stored?
