Dual boot file storage



  • So, working as I am trying to do from Win10 and Linux, sharing files via the NAS isn't an issue.

    But when I take the main laptop to dual boot, you can access ntfs from Linux, but not so much the other way.

    And this was the 'thought' process I used in previous build making different partitions.

    But now I want to make sure I'm doing things right. What would be the correct method of accessing files from both are on a single hdd or sdd.

    You could just keep all your files on the Windows partition so you can access them from either system.

    I suppose that will work, set up a mount point for the folders

    I would just symlink your documents downloads etc. folders to the windows location as it's mounted



  • Consider something like NextCloud, why store the files locally?
