Yes, I do have e2fsprogs installed. The problem is that the file system
on my HDD under question was created long ago under GNU/Linux OS. And
it has the 'sparse_super' flag turned on. It looks like it is
impossible to turn it off once the file system is created, and
DragonFlyBSD driver for Ext2 file system does not support this flag for
some reason. Is that so?
