So you recommend the ReiserFS as the best choice

Hi contrasutra,

I totally agree with you - customizing is the fun part I remember a signature I saw here at LQ; it went something like "If it's broken, fix it; if it ain't broken, break it and fix it again"

Anyway, it would be interesting to read that ext2/3 article - I think I'll google around for a bit.

It depends what files you are saving. If you are saving a few gigabytes or more use XFS. If you are saving small files like a few bytes use reiserfs. If you want compatiblity with older boot loaders and be able to access your LINUX files in windows use ext2 or ext3.

The concept of backing up is the same for LINUX. Should not be any different.

I rather not to undelete. Thats microsoft's way of doing things for farmer john people.

Be careful when using the rm or mv commands.
The simplest one to use for undeleting file is 'debugfs' command. But that is just if you accidentally deleted one or two files. You'll have to look for bash scripts or recovery programs to recover a lot of files like when you accidentally deleted the whole files of your 'Downloaded Movies' folder. It happened to me, thats why I change my ext3 partition to ext2 partition. It's just a matter of changing your 'fstab' setting (change ext3 to ext2).

Yep, up to 16 terabytes, but you are going to have a hard time joining serveral hard drives in a computer case to reach over 16 terabytes.

BTW, do not be trigger happy when you are using rm and mv, so double check the commands before hitting enter.
