Just out of curiosity, could you write an info to the list, how long
your 'some-terrabyte-ext2'-filesystem needs to mount and - every 20th-or
-so mount, how long a fsck is running on when if it's well filled ;-).
I once tried to restore deleted files on a webserver using ext2, i can
tell you, thats no fun. Many programs make copies of the files they are
working on, write there changes, delete the old file and rename the new.
So expect to get lots and lots of versions of files where you have to
decide which is the latest you want to use, and sometimes, its not the
latest by accesstime ...

Well, getting a consistent state ( in this case all metadata removed )
is why we use filesystems like XFS.
