My usb HD came with FAT32 format and I used it that way for almost
three years. No probs with filenames, but I did suffer from bruises
on my forehead. These from banging my head against the wall every
time win2k's defrag program crashed while stirring around treasured
backups. I switched to ext3. Bruises healed. For rare encounters
with windows, I back up with Acronis TrueImage, which speaks ext3.
