afaik, there's no way to do this 'in place'. 

you'd need to boot into rescue mode, create the new XFS partition, copy the data across , then make the new partition live.

Hi Folks, 

Can you guide me about how to convert the CentOS file system from EXT3/EXT4 to XFS without loosing data? I have tried search in google about this but I couldn't get the relevant idea.
