The biggest problem with FAT32 is that it's limited to 2 GB files. My full
dump is 200 GB, and I've found the "one file" dump more reliable and
efficient than the multi-file feature, which breaks the dump into lots of
little 1 GB files.
I format mine with NTFS for OS interoperability and mount using the ntfs-3g
Say the partition is labeled "Backup1". Then I can mount it with:
mount /mnt/Backup /dev/disk/by-label/Backup1 -t ntfs-3g
