I just installed 7.2 on a 1.5TB RAID 5. I'm using about 10GB for the
system and swap, and the rest for a single large partition to be used for
backups.  As of right now, the single partition, /bkup, is empty.


Some will disagree, but this almost screams for ZFS: no fsck, great RAID support, and nearly instant snapshots. You should check into it.

my 6 disk system with 2 750GB disks, 2 500GB disks and 2 320GB disks does fsck in 40 minutes. if you exclude these 320GB disk containing system and squid cache (LOTS of files) it takes <5 minutes
