I'm looking for a file system to format my large external drive with that can read/write in linux and read/write in windows. I know Fat32 is usually the best suggestion, but a large percent of my files are >4GB, so Fat32 won't work. Are there any other ones out there that I can get to work?

Thanks

NTFS. Works natively in Windows, and well in Linux/OS X via NTFS-3g.
