I’ve had a disk failure back in May of this Year, on a 1.5TB Drive. At the time I had run PhotoRec to recover files from it and moved it onto a new 4TB Drive I bought back then. However said drive has failed out of nowhere once again. It was going rather slow last time I plugged it in (via USB3) and after that (despite being ejected proper) it has failed and I’m currently in the process of recovering files from it.
Both drives had NTFS on them cause, well, that’s what they shipped with. But now I really wanna ditche NTFS due to it’s sheer ammount of small annoyances (notably fragmentation and speed) Please bear in mind this is an External Hard Disk Drive.
I’ve been looking into other filesystems that can deal with powerloss and corruption, frankly I was thinking of using ext4 and be done with it, but considering the options, I’m kinda lost on them.
Which would you think is a good Filesystem and why?
Thanks in advance and I hope you have a great day.
