Re: Windows/Linux boot breaks consistency
I'm running a dual boot machine with XP and Kubuntu 9.10.
When asking help from ntfs-3g, please indicate the ntfs-3g version.
1. After booting to XP, one file was damaged - unread and undeleatable from both
2. After the same boot, a different file was reverted to an older version. I'm sure
that the newer version existed because it was already backed up.
May be a consequence of some improper unmount. Start chkdsk on Windows to get back to a clean state.
3. Files with ':' created by Linux cannot be opened or deleted by windows.
This is a feature of Windows. There are about ten such characters which Windows considers illegal in file names, and ntfs-3g can do nothing about it.
