Following on from an excellent answer provided by user Gilles, I'd like to ask whether there's a file system particularly well-suited for fairly heavy torrent use.
Soon I'll be setting up an Ubuntu box with:
- / [ext4]
- /home [ext4]
- /media/data [ext4]
- /media/torrents [?]
Normally I'd make the /media/torrents partition ext4 without considering other options. However, in light of the information linked to above, perhaps there's a better alternative.
The proposed /media/torrents partition will be read and written to 24/7 but will only ever reach ~85% of the partition's capacity.
