After 2 years of loving dirvish I hit the 24m nodes on the disk I was 
using, which I think is ext3 formated.

Moving forward this is not idea.

What is the best format for disks so as not to hit this issue?

My current config is just a boring spare old box, but moving forward I'm 
going to be using a spare VPS[1] on another box to do back ups.

Server is set up with XEN with dom0 living on a raid1 disk set the LVM 
pat's for each VM.  VM's are then using ext3 formating on the VM (I think).

What are peoples thoughts?

[1] ps - ya the vps is on a different physical machine to the data I'm 
backing up, not quite that silly.... ;)
