"Try new version of Grub4DosConfig for ext4. [b][/b] Supports ntfs, vfat, ext2, ext3, ext4 by standalone. Need not grub legacy anymore.

ext2 better?

"That is very interesting. I may have to play with ext4. Can we have ext4 as the filesystem within the pupsave and within a truecrypt volume too? I wonder if there is a speedup there too. I was reading somewhere that ext2 is better for flash drives, because since it is non-journaling there are fewer actual writes, making the drive last longer.
