Re: Which file system is better

Please keep the context.  When you post via debianhelp.org your postings
are sent through to a mailing list.  That means that when you eliminate
*all* context, it is difficult to figure out what you are talking about.

The fact is that while ext3 has had large file support for a while now,
it does have a hard limit of 8 TB per partition.  This can be a real
problem if you are trying to make very large partitions.
