<p>It&#39;s not a good idea to not do journalling for an external drive. No matter how careful you are, it is just a matter of when you will trip up your USB cable in the middle of a write; and then you should just pray that fsck can save your drive without the journal.</p>

<p>Also, it probably won&#39;t hurt using ext4, given that ext4 had several performance improvements over ext3. However, as Theodore T&#39;so - the primary developer of ext4 - said, ext4 is a stopgap until btrfs is ready. IMO, from my experience of using btrfs some time ago, I&#39;d say that btrfs is pretty much ready nowadays.</p>
