Hi all: We have been using GWAVA Retain for some time now and our archive file system now contains about 3.7 million files. Backing up this many small files is a very slow. We are currently using ext3 as the FS. I know GWAVA recommends XFS but from reading many online articles I am not sure if XFS really is the best to use.

I would like to know what file system you use for the Retain archive and how it performs? Are there any tweaks that can improve performance?

Thanks, Chris.
