    Hi,

    Just a quick question: When running ExtFS 8 on OS X 10.7.5, how do you choose whether a drive is formatted in Ext2, Ext3 or Ext4?

    A side question: does ExtFS 8 support 3TB drives?

    thanks,

    geb

    Have you tried the Terminal commands from the Knowledge Base?

    You can experiment on your 3TB disks that way.

    Personally I would only format ext in Linux.
