A bit off-topic, but is there any reason for using UFS2 instead of FFSv1?
According to,
ffs (v1) should also support such large filesystems. I was looking at and didn't find anything relevant. I was thinking that if they
announce UFS2, they will also tell why it is better, but this doesn't seem
to happen.
