This is not KDE related either, but I think you want ReiserFS - it can cope
with large directories (a lot of small files especially) much better than
ext2.

I use it for a FTP server which has 120G space - and believe me I am happy
that ReiserFS doesn't delay a "ls -l" at all when you have 10,000 files in
one directory.

Besides, the journaling means that after a power outage I had to wait 10
seconds for the 120G to be up again - not 120 minutes, like ext2 would
probably have taken.


just my EUR 0.02 :)
