I'm going to be doing a fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04 on my System76 laptop that currently has one SSD drive installed.
Soon I'll be installing a second SSD on the same laptop that will have Windows 8.1 installed.
I will use Ubuntu 85% of the time. However, I want the Windows install to have easy access (read and write) to my data files (docs, spreadsheets, pics, vids, pdfs).
On the 18.04 install I thought of using the Ubuntu installer default partition set-up with encryption + the addition of an NTFS partition, which would be the biggest partition; that's where I'd put data files. I also want the NTFS partition encrypted.
- Does this sound like a good approach?
- How will encrypting the NTFS partition with LUKS work? Or does LUKS encrypt the whole drive, not each partition?
