[kwlug-disc] backups capped at 2 gigs

I've got a backup system running where I rsync my desktop over to a 
backup server then I tar it up every night.

The tar seems to be capped at 2gigs.  Any idea on why that would be?  I 
wonder if it's not the filesystem type.  I've got two large drives in 
the backup server, one is set up as ext4 (that's where the tar is 
happening) and the other is set up as linux native.  I don't know why I 
set it up that way - could that be the problem, and what type of 
filesystem should I be using?
