In that case it uses ext3 as filesystem but this disk is also used
for the swap and configuration partition.

The real interesting number is the number of files:
40 GB of movies --> 20 files
40 GB of mp3 --> 16000 files
Thats almost 1000 times more files.
Do you have more then a few 100 files in one directory. Because thats
could case long delays?
Are the differences between de ext3 filesystem and the ntfs filesystem?
