Hi, Even though I may use ntfs-3g to read and write to NTFS I'm still a bit confused about NTFS and Linux. Specifically the safety of using NTFS from Linux. I'm not quite sure where to find the answer so I thought posting here would be a great start. I'm aware that if one uses Linux then modifying a file on an NTFS partition can be dangerous. Does moving/copying a file from the NTFS partition to the Linux partition (ext2 or ext3) damage that file in any way? Can the file that was moved/copied be edited on Linux? After editing, can that file be moved/copied back to the NTFS partition and be edited by a user of a Windows system? Thank you for taking the time to read my question.
