NTFS support in Linux
hello. I have a athlon XP 2000+ computer running on a MATX motherboard...currently runnign windows 2000...
I would like to install debian sarge on it and use it as a X window server, so I can use my apple notebook to do remote X sessions with it.
My problem is that I currently have a 160GB raid 1 array in my system. The drives are currently formatted in the NTFS filesystem, and the data is too large to do a backup on. What I could possibly do (tell me please if I am mistaken) is take one of the hard drives and keep it in a safe place, use the other drive, format it, install debian on it and then re-intoduce the first hard drive to transfer data back to the original drive.
is it possible to split a RAID 1 array without loosing data? (mirrored RAID)
and is there support for RW NFTS access on drives in debian sarge?
