General :: Windows 7 - Any Drawback For Using NTFS ?

Apr 12, 2011

I use linux for work (perform c++ calculations, latex) and I use windows for entertainment (dj software, tablet functionality). I'd like to access (read and write) to my linux partition from windows.

I heard coLinux is an answer but it will probably make things complicated.

So far i heard that the only problem with using NTFS for linux is it's slower. This is not good for work.

I was thinking partitioning my drive so that my home directory with all the config files is NTFS and the root and work directory is ext4. any drawbacks to that?

Ubuntu :: Multiple Distros Along With Windows 7

Feb 5, 2011

I can't stay without ubuntu a single day. That's it. I said it. But I definitely need windows 7 cause I'm a heavy gamer. But I also like to keep and use other distros like Fedora. I came to read that only ubuntu uses GRUB 2.0 and it automatically detects all the distros which should be listed by GRUB 1.0. My question is,

How Can i set up the Multiple OS machine Ubuntu + Fedora / BackTrack / Suse + Windows 7? Someone on IRC channel told me that I just install Ubuntu last and it will detect all operating systems automatically.. But I'm a quite reluctant to that kind of short answer. It's now your call experts.

General :: NTFS Drive Damaged After Unsafe Removal From Windows 7

Jun 5, 2011

some info on the drive - it's a USB 2.0 portable hard drive (PQI H560), one partition spanning all 640GB, NTFS. Used almost exclusively on Linux (arch and ubuntu), but initially formatted on Windows 7.The hard drive has quite a lot of hard links on it, as it was a timemachine-like backup system.And now the issue itself:Today I made the mistake of taking out my portable hard drive from my Linux system and plugging it in a Windows 7 box. Everything worked nice, I took a movie from the drive, and it lay dormant for an hour or so. After that I took the drive out (forgot to unmount :/) and put it back in my Linux.

Any idea why did it break so bad? I thought NTFS was kind of durable.Best if there would be something nondestructive (be able to get the data while preserving every bit of the drive in it's current state - just to be sure it doesn't break anything)

Installation :: Setup Comp For Two Distros And No Windows?

Oct 20, 2010

Before I always had Windows partition and I was installing Linux on a second partition. Now I would like to reformat the HD and only have two Linux distributions installed. The idea is that one will be for everyday use and the other will only be used occasionally for things such as banking etc. So for me it's very important that one Linux distro does NOT see the other one, and certainly not to share things such as /home. So my question is, once i reformat the disk and start installing first distro, which partitions should I make? Can I make partitions for both distros while installing the first one, or should I go one by one? Can there be two / partitions or two /home partitions? I guess swap can and should be shared. If there can be only one / and one /home partitions, do I create another partition where the second distro will go? How do I then define the / and /home for that second one?

I hope someone who has done something like that can share his/her knowledge. If distros are important, I am thinking about Ubuntu or Kubuntu for everyday use, and CentOS for banking. If someone can suggest another distro based on their security track record, I'd love to hear that too. I don't need nor want servers, both will be desktop versions with all ports closed.

General :: Delete And Resize Windows Basic Ntfs Partitions With Gparted

Mar 22, 2011

I have a windows box running w2003 server on 1 volume with 2x ntfs basic partitions. c: = the windows bit, d: = the data bit for user data.I have cloned (clonezilla) the volume to another and deleted the data (d bit and want to extend the c: into the freed space.I'm booted from a partedmagicv5 cd and using gparted to attempt this.I can't see a way to do this with gparted but then, I could be thick. Maybe I clone off reformat and copy back?Is there a better way or even is this the correct forum (please don't refer me to Microsoft website:-) for this type of question?This is a test box so not worried about breaking it, but the test is to try to solve a live problem at a school I support which is running out of hd space.

General :: Enable NTFS Compression Using Paragon NTFS 8.1 Enterprise?

Apr 14, 2011

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?

General :: Mounting NTFS With Ntfs-3g And Fuse As A User?

Jan 8, 2011

On a clean install of Arch linux I edited fstab to be like so :


/dev/disk/by-id/usb-Hitachi_HTS543232L9A300_9002555dd84a21024b000000-0:0-part1 /media/EXT ntfs-3g user,rw,uid=mas,gid=users,noauto 0 0

I tried ntfs and ntfs-3g but the result is the same I can mount root but I would like to be able to mount as a user. When I try to mount as a user I get


Unprivileged user can not mount NTFS block devices using the external FUSE library. Either mount the volume as root, or rebuild NTFS-3G with integrated FUSE support and make it setuid root. Please see more information at [URL] Before installing ntfs-3g I was able to mount as a user but there was no rw permission. Any way to mount an ntfs partition as a user without suid as the message said?

General :: Installed UNR ... Can't Get Windows 7 Back

Nov 16, 2010

(Linux Noob here) I just installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix (the latest one off the official site) and had it installed on my Acer Aspire one Netbook. My netbook had Windows 7 prior to installing UNR. I managed to get a partition for UNR and installed it from the USB and just went with the steps (never gave me an option to install alongside Windows, since I booted using the UNR image from the USB).

so got UNR working but the problem is that there seems to be no option to boot to Windows 7. My netbook boots straight to UNR. I know I have to edit the GRUB or something but I have no idea how to even do this. How do I setup UNR so that I get the option to boot with either UNR or Windows. I previously installed Jolicloud and it was simple enough that it gave me the option to boot to either Jcloud or Win 7. How do I do this with UNR?
