That's a dirty dirty hack and you should be experienced enough NOT to suggest such a thing. For one, FAT32 doesn't know zip about Linux file permissions, it fragments and breaks very easily, and all in all it just doesn't make sense.BlahBlah_X wrote:You might want to try formatting your /home with FAT32. Both linux and windows can read that.
Nothing against that ... you can create a FAT32 partition somewhere and a mount point called e.g. "/mnt/data-exchange" where you mount that ... or you could use an external USB stick or USB harddisk (they're usually pre-formatted with FAT32 anyway when you buy them).Husse wrote: But - there are occasions when a use of a "non native" file system could be recommended
