Journal file system such as Ext4


Journal file system such as Ext4 is now used by default in most Linux distributions. No secure erase programs operating at file system level can clean files on these file systems, as sensitive data and metadata can be written to the Journal file system.

Disable journal entry on ext4 file system partition is recommended.

tune2fs allows system administrator to adjust different file system parameters on Linux ext2, ext3 or ext4 file system.

Unfortunately, you can not do it on an active partition, so in order to disable the journal entry, you must log in to the single maintenance mode, disassemble the volume, and then make your changes.

Option two is to install it as a secondary hard drive in another system without installing it and making the change from there with Tune2fs.

Take a look in the manual with the command:

man tune2fs

To disable journal entries in ext4:

tune2fs -O ^ has_journal / dev / sda?

With this in mind, it is doubtful that it is helpful to use BleachBit for example. before making this change.
