File System compare – Fat32, EXT2, EXT3

All information needed to compare FAT32, NTFS, EXT2 and EXT3 file system are available at Wikipedia – Comparison of file systems
This is really useful to choose the better file system for the NAS because it’s OS-free and depends only by the firmware capability: actually, it can support FAT32, EXT2 and EXT3.

According to the wikipedia article, the best one is the EXT3 because it can easily recover from a power failure thanks to the journal.

So, I need to find a wait to backup the whole NAS and conver both disks to EXT3… 🙂
