I was away from home for a couple of days and offline. Now back in business.

While in Perth I bought a 1.5TB external hard drive. I had run out of archive space. Before now, I have been using a 320GB external drive -- it took a couple of years, but that is now full.

"01658"'Reformed 1.5TB drive"BarryK"My drive is a Western Digital Elements USB 1.5TB hard drive, pre-formatted with an NTFS filesystem. Running Wary 030, which has all the same package versions as Quirky, I ran Gparted and reformatted the partition to ext3. It is working fine. Perhaps it is a different situation if the partition is resized? Username: 13 Jun 2010, 19:17
