no, unless you will create it with default options.
use -i big-power-of-two simply to have enough inodes for your files, but
not 100 times too much. too much inodes=more wasted space AND VERY SLOW
use -b 32768 or 65536 depending of your file's average size.
-b 16384 will work too, but again fsck may be long.
of course turn on softupdates.
UFS performs excellent on large drives/volumes. not in theory but in
practice, i use it every place, on volumes up to 3GB
> Also are there any tools for recovery off ZFS volumes? Accidental
