All file systems will give you data corruption if your machine
suddenly loses power (with standard PC's). With standard params
ext3 will be a little better because it keeps puts a copy of the
data being written in the journal before it writes it in the correct
location, also as a security matter XFS will zero the bytes in a
partially written blocks on fsck, while ext3 just leaves the corrupted
block in place, which is often useful if the data is a text file.
AFAIK Except for ReiserFS, all other Linux filesystems will only
corrupt files open for writing, so this isn't entirely random...
However, files can include directories...
For the video store, XFS and JFS are really the only reasonable
options. For your main Linux partitions ext3 and ReiserFS can
have some real advantages.
