NTFS vs any linux file system
I've got a 2tb Nasware harddrive (NTFS) in my workstation (Win7-64) that holds a bunch of tar.gz files. These tar.gz files originate from an external backup machine that is running some version of Ubuntu Server. I have been manually moving these tar.gz files from the back up machine using WinSCP to my workstation 2tb disk.
The back up machine will now be leaving my office and going to the clients, so I need to move this 2tb disk into the back up machine before it leaves.
My questions is, is it worth moving all of those back ups to another disk, formatting the 2tb disk with a linux file system (of your personal suggestion) and then moving all of the back ups back onto to the 2tb disk?
The best linux file system for my specific use would be any that is known to last a very long time, capable of storing 2tb, speed is not an issue. I was thinking ext3.
