Formating a backup drive to ext3

2 posts in this topic

Drive capacity = 1 TB

File size (mostly) = 200 MB - 300 MB

mkfs.ext3 -c -b 1024 -J size=1 -m 0 -O large_file,dir_index,^filetype,^has_journal,^journal_dev,^resize_inode,sparse_super,ext_attr -v -L [label] -T largefile4 [device]

Is setting block size to 1024 bytes ideal?

If you've got larger files, go with a larger block size. I've got a partition on my server that I use primarily for video ripping and conversion - it's block size is 64KB.
