WD My Passport Ultra - Partitioned to ext4

Hi

Anyone successfully using this drive, partitioned as ext4.

Earlier (2 years ago) ... it gave me some issues, so I made it into ntfs again. Ntfs is slow on linux, & consumes processor. sad

Thanks smile

What issues? Post actual tangible information, there's nothing that should prevent a drive from being reformatted to whatever. If there is I wouldn't trust the drive.

Mod note: Not a kernel issue, moving to NC
