I haven't seen this addressed anywhere & quite frankly a "google" wasn't any help. So I pose the question here.
If I, under M$, turn on the NTFS compression, will that drive still work under LINUX?
My thought is that it won't as I haven't seen any control in LINUX for it.
I am wondering if anyone knows how to enable NTFS compression using Paragon NTFS 8.1 Enterprise?
The Professional version comes with a utility mkntfs which allows you to set compression as default for all files, but the Enterprise version is apparently meant to be 'fully featured' and support compression, so how do I enable compression on a drive/folder/file?
I'm looking to dual-boot Windows 7 and Debian 6 upon its release on my sister's laptop. I want to share a partition between the two of them so that /home points to this directory and the Windows equivalent also points to it (C:Users).
Anyway, I've heard good and bad things about the NTFSMount driver (I think it's NTFS-3G now) and the NTFSprogs project and so I am not so certain what I should believe. I do know that NTFS has relatively high overhead, though I do not recall the source of this assertion, so I am considering the use of EXFAT. An open source EXFAT project is hosted on Google Code at [url] and it utilizes the kernel module FUSE.
I'm quite certain that I've got everything covered on the Windows side -- that is, I know that both NTFS and EXFAT will be suitable filesystems for my required usage.
My issue is that I'm curious which will have superior performance and stability in Debian. I planned on building the package from source and mounting the device in my FSTAB but I have also found a PPA for Ubuntu on Launchpad at [url] that I could borrow the debian/rules from and make a .deb package from.
What do you guys think? Should I go at it with the EXFAT or NTFS partitioning? Is NTFS-3G actually fairly supported at this point? Or perhaps should I consider some alternate method?
I have also considered that the only files she will be sharing are those of music, videos, and pictures so it could be better to just link /home/xxxx/Pictures (Music and Videos, too) to the new partition instead of all of /home.
Got Samba on fedora 13. Windows machines backup their files to the linux shared folder. I want to attach an external hard disk (USB) to the linux machine in order to backup those files. Can the external hard drive be NTFS or do I need to reformat it as Linux file system (ext3)?
I have a dual-boot system, Windows XP on primary HDD and Fedora on Slave HDD. NTFS -3G is installed in Fedora, but I would like to hide (or not mount) Windows system partition on Fedora boot, as I have multiple users in Fedora and do not want them to access this partition. I do want to mount/display my NTFS D: partition in Fedora. Is there a way to exclude an NTFS partition from mounting by default?
Is there any compression software that supports PAQ8 and its variants with a graphical interface for Fedora (i'm using x86_64)? What's the best compression algorithm known to man? Time taken to compress is not a problem, just need to have the best compression available. Is there any program for linux?
hy I can't make a 7z archive with file roller? I have already installed p7zip, p7zip-plugins, and 7za. I don't understand what the problem is. I can make a 7z archive from the command line with no problems. I keep getting this message but it doesn't tell me what the error is. Quote:An error occurred while adding files to the archive.
A drive on my Linux machine is NTFS as the file system. There's a file corruption issue of some kind for copying files from the drive to another or another PC result in I/O errors. Overall, I work with 2 systems, one Windoze, the other Linux. I'm about to switch the roles of the 2 machines. The one with the corrupted ntfs partition is about to become my Windows machine and the Windows machine is going to become Linux.
Since I will be installing Windows on the machine with the problematic ntfs partition, I'm figuring at some point, Windoze chdsk will kick in and fix the drive. (Windows will be installed to another drive that is perfect right now.)
Is this a correct assumption? Or, do I do everything I possibly can to fix the corrupt partition prior to the new Windows install? If this is true, what are my options for fixing corrupted files under Ubuntu? Research I've done hasn't yielded much in results and a definitive answer for fixing corrupt files in Linux.
Is it possible to format a Fat32 Ubuntu system drive to ntfs leaving the program and data undisturbed? I created a gparted liveCD and used it to format a slave drive to ntfs. It worked perfectly. Can the gparted liveCD be used on the master drive similarly without destroying the existing files on it?

I have updated my linux version 5.2 yo 5.3 after that I wanted to mount my windows drives. I installed this rpm kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.18-92.el5-2.1.27-0.rr.10.11.i686.rpm (99KB) its not working while um giving this command #mount -t ntfs /dev/sda5 /mnt shows a error unknown file system NTFS. bt it worked in 5.2.
I have a videos server here at work running Mandriva 2009 Spring and I need to copy a 10 gig file from it to a USB drive. The drive needs to be readable and writable from Windows. The file size rules out FAT, and when I try to write to it when formatted as NTFS I get an error about it being a read-only file system. How can I get NTFS support up and running?
