I've been using XFS on my (200gb) video drive for 14 months with no  
issues. Before that I had a JFS drive (which is still in there, 80  
gig, but now used to export to, rather than for recording) and it  
also worked fine. No complaints with either. Note, the JFS drive's  
been in the system for 3 years, and 4 upgrades (.18-.21-2) without  
any problems.
