    extended journaled is what most users would use.

    Most backup software recommends using HFS+. (Journaled)

    It sounds like you are referring to HFS+ as intrinsically journaled. That is not the case. HFS+ is simply referring to Mac OS Extended. The journaled option is a separate matter. Then again you were not extremely clear in what you were trying to say so if that was not the case, sorry.

    Yes, but by default (since 10.3), HFS+ is journaled. See here.
