Which filesystem to make use of for a dividing shown to an identical Windows installment?
On my new COMPUTER I intend to install both Linux and also Windows, each by themselves instead tiny dividing, and also placed the large remainder of the 1 TB HDD in a more dividing (plus swap). Which filesystem should I make use of? My ideas:
- NTFS. Linux has write assistance, yet I saw on my exterior HDD a massive efficiency decline when just a couple of GB (of 500 GB) were left free - instantly a couple of hundred MEGABYTES took half a hr to duplicate ... Any suggestions why? Additionally no documents approvals with Linux, although that is not 100% essential yet would certainly be an incentive
- fat32. Also old, will not sustain that dividing dimension anyhow
- ext3. Windows can read as an example using ext2ifs, yet what concerning excellent write assistance? I would certainly also take into consideration a tiny digital equipment with a little Linux installment to just give a NFS share to its host windows (possibly qemu, distro referral are valued)
- ext4. I do not have the experience with it ...
It looks lke NTFS is the means to go with currently (equally as it was two years ago), yet I would certainly favor a much less exclusive remedy.
