I have not used ext3 for my recordings for at least 4 years so I have
not had to use the slow deletes option. Since sometime in 2008 I had
begun moving my recordings from xfs to ext4 and now the datastorage
that I use daily is all ext4. I do not have any problems with ext4 and
it does not need the slow delete option.
