I bought a 3TB hard drive for this and didn't realize I needed to format the drive in GPT, but I realize that after installing debian 3 times due to different types of errors, I'm not going to bother anymore with it. However, one of my partitions is just under 2TB since that is the msdos limit. Which is fine with me, as I will be able to image up to 1.5TB hard drives. The actual data folder is about 800GB or so since I used 100GB for my main debian installation, even though I probably shouldn't have allocated that much room for /. But for my just-under-2TB partition and my 800GB partition, is ext4 a good enough filesystem or should I go for JFS, XFS, etc? The files extracted are usually small but can be up to even a gig per file if I manage to recover those but I highly doubt as I wasnt able to recover any serious movies I had.

Is ext4 ok for both?
