All I really want is a backup manager that can run any game from external no matter how big the files are.
Save yourself the trouble and buy an extender and a big internal HDD, and no problems. I have a feeling it will be a very long time before you see NTFS support, if you ever do.
Besides, having an internal HDD is the most compatible and efficient upgrade. External only has the advantage of carrying the HDD around between PS3s and PCs, While internal has best compatibility (supports more games and all PS3 features) as well as being much faster due to the slow transfer limitations of a HDDs using USB connections (USB is really slow).
oVERSoLDiER submitted this to the Site News, but without the download it isn't even newsworthy (sounds like just what we already have) but from the PS3Key site update:
