Davo, Pardon my questions, I always work better when I get real user feedback, Manuals are good for guidelines, however this is my first Buffalo station and not having any co-workers to bounce ideas makes it more difficult.  I am looking to get user feedback from experienced buffalo owners.  Thanks and would still like a suggestion on formatting.

If you have any single files that are larger than 4GB then use XFS, otherwise use FAT32

Thank you, just didn't want to choose the wrong one and be stuck in a DR situation.
