Interesting article thank you. I too have long been a fan of Paragon and have downloaded extFS for Mac to format my DCP delivery drive.
I understand the drive itself needs to be formatted in EXT2 or EXT3 with a 128 inode size but there is no way of changing the node size in Paragon without going through Terminal and Homebrew which is out of my comfort zone i.e I don't want to format the wrong drive! Have you successfully delivered DCPs using extFS for Mac as is?
Also, in your article you first mention that the drive must be formatted Ext2 but then go on to solely talk about Ext3. I have read that drives can be delivered in either but for maximum compatibility the drive should be Ext2 and 128 node size. What is your experience with this? Thanks!
