I can't speak for Greywolf, but here's what I do:

Filesystem    1048576-blocks  Used Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/ad2h              76285 65957  4225    94%    /dumpa
echunga:/dump          76285 45595 24587    65%    /dump

As the names suggest, I use these drives for backing up my network
(and that's why they're on different systems).  Why not take advantage
of large file systems?
