I have a dual boot system in place, Ubuntu/Windows, each on its on physical hard drive since I also have SRT active on the Windows partition.
The setup is as follows:
– Partition 1: System (Windows 7)
– Partition 2: Storage (NTFS)
– Partition: Ubuntu
Now, I can easily mount the Windows partitions from Ubuntu and read their files. I can even copy the files onto the partition in question (Storage – Disk1/Partition2), and it works flawlessly. However, I cannot see ANY files added by Ubuntu when I boot Windows up. So basically, Windows only sees its own files on the partition, while Ubuntu sees everything.
Is there something I need to do to make Windows see Ubuntu-made files? Keep in mind that the partition is NTFS, not ext2/3/4, so Windows does see it – just not the files which Ubuntu makes (and Win7 doesn't even take those files into account when calculating leftover free space on said partition – they are completely nonexistant to the OS)
My goal is, essentially, to have one Storage partition through which both Operating Systems could share files – thus having music, movies, code samples and downloads all in one place, accessible and changeable by both OS – without having to resort to something like a physically separate network drive.
