Managing filesystems is an integral part of Linux administration. A filesystem in Linux isn’t useful until it is mounted and because media devices such as optical and USB drives are considered distinct filesystem, they too must be mounted before they can be used. This course describes filesystem management, including the creation of partitions and as well as maintaining the integrity of file systems. This course is part of a series that prepares the learner for CompTIA Linux+ exam LX0-101 and Linux Professional Institute (LPI) LPIC-1 Junior Level Administrator exam 101.
