My plan for the drive is long-term and portable storage of digital files.
The idea is basically write once, read many. Also, the drive has been
formatted into several smaller partitions. For this kind of use I don't
need the capabilities of ext4. In fact I don't even need a journal and
could probably use ext2 just as well.
