    I have 2 External FW HDDs on my mini. I have a question for each.

    The first one is a LaCie mini stack, I am leaving it formatted Mac OS Ext. Should Journaling be enabled, or is it best to leave it disabled?

    The second one I formatted FAT32 so it can be used no matter where I go even though it will primarily be used on my mini. Are there any known issues I may run into using an MS-DOS formatted drive long-term on the Mac?

    Any changes to recommend on how I have this setup that would serve me better?
