Hi Brent, Thanks for the reply.
I have to make a decision yes, it is not an easy one either, I read have so
many different reports, opinions that I now feel my brain has become rather
scrambled.. Wondering now if I should just have smaller filesystems and stick
with EXT3.. I have never used XFS and have therefore no experience with it and
this I guess leaves me short of confidence.
