But just to be sure I am not making the same mistakes with filenames inter changeability between Windows, Apple and Linux, I guess for guaranteed succes in interchangeability I will have to only use small letters without any spaces or (* & % $ !) marks. The lower _ mark is allowed across all computer OS platforms.
Mount your NTFS partitions with the windows_names parameter to prevent invalid names from the get go. This, and other compatibility options, are all explained in the manual (man ntfs-3g). RTFM is a thing on Linux. ;)
