Re: [PLUG] Mac OS X Ext2 Filesystem

Maybe so, but NTFS3g is reputed to be very stable, enough so that I use
it for my backup disk, since I need it to be read on all 3 platforms.
FAT32 just has too many problems (big file support, etc) for me to use
it like that. Ext support in Windows also sucks. As long as I
occasionally verify the backups I think I'll be just fine.

Any better suggestions?
FAT32 is the only safe choice. (Nobody's NTFS support besides
Microsoft's can "safely" be used for RW access: everything else is
experimental for write access. That's because of Microsoft's refusal
to release documentation of their file system.)
