File Systems on 3TB drive

I am looking to get a new hard drive to save OTA HDTV shows and HD video editing on my Mac.

The issue is that I also have a lot of videos on a Linux OS that at a minimum I would like to transfer.

I 'should' be able to setup a wired network to transfer the files from Linux to Mac. But I wouldn't mind being able to access it in Linux as well, but that isn't the primary purpose of it.

I will have files bigger than 4 GB, and the drive is larger than 2TB, so FAT32 is out. I have a 1TB with HFS+ on it, but I was reading that Linux doesn't support HFS+ very well on drives over 2TB. I am still leaning towards HFS+ right now, just because 99% of what I need to do with it will be on Mac OS X.

ext3/4 would require some software on the Mac to work I believe.

NTFS and ReiserFS are two other possibilities that I would need to look into some more. I'm not sure Linux can write to NTFS, but that might have been fixed since the last time I looked into it.

Sorry I can not answer that question however I do relate to the overall issue.

I use 2 different Linux desktop systems. I suspect that at the heart of the system OS issues is the apparent desire make one OS that does it all. The Linux Server and the Linux Desktop are fundamentally different in their goals and objectives. Yet the essential framework is the same.

The Mac OS is an expanded version of the Linux OS. Once our Linux OS developers grasp the value of a true Linux Desktop OS, all will be well. The scheduler, file systems, and memory management will become desktop friendly, which is not the same as server side friendly.

A client system is not the same as a server system. Someday we will realize these things.

EXT2 should work, I think it handles 16GB files and up to 4TB file systems with 1kb block size...more with larger but I don't know the implications of that.

try:

So wait, the disk is mounted on your Linux machine and you just need to access it from the Mac?

Whatchoo need is NFS. The partition will be EXT4 and you can export via NFS, the Mac won't care what the underlying filesystem is because it accesses it through the NFS client anyway. OS X 10.6 has an NFS client built-in, so this is your simplest answer.

The Mac OS 10 and up are built on top of BSD Unix, not Linux. Linux is based on Unix, meant to be linus torvalds own little Unix clone operating system.
