Thx for the useful information abt the ext2 filesystem. What I want to find out is, whether any website is avbl for finding the detailed structure of a superblock ? i.e., all the fields that the superblocks stores, their valid contents, when are they changed, how r they affected when a file is changed etc…
Thanks a lot in advance.

the correct command to go back to previous directory (as seen in table graphic) should be
cd –
cd ..

cd .. go to parent directory
cd – return to previous directory
