Default ext3 to ext4 conversion

My question is if the hard drive is reformatted with the ext4 file system and I
re-install that 'image' [ext3 file system] will the data be corrupted?


This doesn't really help, I'll assume you just want to convert your ext3
filesystem (saved in an image file) to ext4.


You have two possibilities:
- Upgrade the existing filesystem[1].
- Create a new filesystem and copy the files into it[2].

1:

2: Use Alan's instructions to mount the image file with a loop device,
and copy them in your new ext4 filesystem.
