I can only second this: here it was even worse, I more than once found a
dead reiserfs 3.x on one of my hdds. No chances to revive it, no possibility
to find out why the $'%& it chrashed and all data was lost. Now I am using
xfs and no problems so far, even on virtual linux disks inside a co-linux on
windows 2003. I also never had problems with ext3, but xfs can be easily
extended to a new partition size which I use relatively often.
