Hi, i have a 500GB LaCiE external hard-drive, i bought it for the purpose of storing my music, photos, movies etc. I tend to distro hop/re-install fairly often. Its connected by usb and is detected etc.
My drive is currently formatted as ext4, and refuses to mount under FreeBSD, which isn't a problem, i can backup the stuff and reformat it... but the problem is choosing a suitable filesystem.
Which filesystem, would be appropriate to use for both a Linux and FreeBSD host?
I don't want to use ntfs, for personal reasons. And Fat-32's file size limit isn't ideal.
The drive needs read and write support under both Linux/FreeBSD. Any ideas?
