    Communicating With the Other Half: NTFS Support in Linux

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | Unfortunately, Microsoft has kept many of the internal details of NTFS
    | secret, and the filesystem has changed with each new version of Windows. The
    | secrecy makes it difficult for third parties, and particularly for open
    | source developers, to write reliable NTFS drivers. In the case of a file
    | system, an unreliable driver can translate into lost data, so NTFS support
    | (particularly read/write NTFS support) has been slow in coming to Linux.
    |
    | Fortunately, this picture is beginning to change, with several NTFS drivers
    | now available for Linux. These drivers enable you to read from, and even to
    | write to, NTFS partitions, including removable media formatted with NTFS. If
    | you dual-boot between Linux and Windows, this will enable you to eliminate
    | any FAT partition you might otherwise use for data exchange. Even if you
    | don’t let Windows near your hard disks, NTFS support will enable you to read
    | removable disks that others have formatted with NTFS.

    Read access is okay but writing NTFS on linux is dangerous. It will often
    corrupt your files and you will lose data.
