Re: Using FAT32 for Win and Ubuntu seems inpossible
Would avoid using Fat32. Win7 is designed to use NTFS and I have used that filesystem for sharing data with Linux distros for years now -- ever since the day when you had to go out of your way to install NTFS-3G!
I read about folks having problems with this approach is when they tried to have /home on an NTFS volume -- which clearly will not work because NTFS can't mirror Linux filesystem permissions.
Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
