So I needed to create a file-system to house a handful of archive/backup tarballs (around 40 of them). I created an ext4 file-system with 100 inodes, like this:
# mkfs.ext4 -b 4096 -L airgap -m 0 -N 100 -v /dev/sdc1
Note: 100 inodes isn’t very many! Only supports up to 100 files/folders. Also note that 0% space is reserved for root. If you’re copying the above command make sure you replace /dev/sdc1 with an appropriate partition device.
