I am sorry - I mistyped up above. I meant to say "large number of files".
The size of the files in your file system does not matter as far as fsck
duration is concerned - it is the number that matters.

So when you have millions of files the backup takes many hours. And XFS
file system with the same number of files is up in minutes.
