    Talking How to make a network between dual OS

    Hi,

    How to make a network sharing between two OS installed in a same HDD?

    I am using Ubuntu and Win 8, While I am using Win 8 I need to use some common entertainment files or documents from Ubuntu and Vice versa.

    It is possible? Possible means what is the procedure and Guides.

    Yeah, it can be done. Just create a separate partition on the hard drive and format it as FAT32. Then put whatever files you want to transfer into that partition. Both Ubuntu and Win8 will be able to read from it.

    I would make that partition NTFS. FAT32 has file size and other limitations that might prove troublesome.

    I second the NTFS choice.
    Using a somewhat recent version of Ubuntu there shouldn't be any problem with it.
