Cross-platform file sharing - 03/24/08 05:37 AM
Curious about what filesystem people here use to set up shared directories/drives between a dual-boot windows/linux machine. I've always used FAT32, but now with DVD games becoming more popular, Blu-Ray on the rise, rips and files are quickly becoming much greater than the 4GB limit of FAT32. And I hate splitting files. I did find http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1759,2265543,00.asp that article, which provided some useful information. The two things are read/write access from both OS's natively (no 3rd party applications that require me to open them to gain access to the drive.), and larger file support. Of course, free too. That throws out NTFS For Linux. Also, Samba won't work, because I won't be networking the computers, it'll be dual boot. (Unless Samba can do that). So, any suggestions that people here use and like?
