That is an excellent question after reviewing the Wikipedia Link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compar...f_file_systems
posted by /dev/random, I realized the naive nature of the query I posed. I had no idea that there were so many file systems and so many combinations of features.
I think I have two high priority concerns:
-- I would not want anything about the file system to inhibit or complicate manipulating it for maintenance or file interchange reasons.
-- I have a high interest in encryption in order to put my personal and private information beyond the reach of snoops but I do not want my life unnecessarily complicated or inconvenienced.
As to this latter issue I do not that jefro's recommendations of ext 14 and ntfs both show a "yes" in the column headed: "Filesystem-Level Encryption
"but I admit ignorance of how that level of encryption differs from any other encryption.
