If this is 9.10 it will default for the OS to Ext4 and Ext2 for swap. If you want to use utilities such as shred or secure-delete, then make DATA Ext2 as well. Else Ext4.

9.10's default fs is ext4 and swap is a native swap format and not ext2. Ext4 will be faster than ext3

Can you help with this problem?
