Yes! That is what I usually do. And it works fine in Linux.
This is really bizarre and new for me.
When I boot the machine in Windows(NTFS partition) I CAN SEE the user I am logged in and I create a file "findmeplease.txt" in my documents folder. I can see the hidden directories "Local Settings", "Cookies" among others trough the gold old dos <dir /as> command.
So far, nothing new...
I remove this harddrive (or boot with a Knoopix/Slax live cd) and plug it into my ubuntu machine (NTFS enable and used with other hard disks fine).
Where did the user directory (that is suposed to be in "Documents and Settings")
Ok SmartUser you move it, no problem I will find it with my previous "findmeplease.txt" file...
find -iname "findmeplease.txt"
What? Let me check the folder again...
Something weird appears: In the "Documents and Settings" folders there are 2 new folders:
"Network Service" and "Local Service"
Those folders (Strangely)
DO NOT APPEAR when the I boot windows.
I seems some mount like volume control linux clone stuff, but I've never seen that before.
This is currently happening in a Toshiba M45 notebook.
I've checked for security software and could not find anything.
I haven't done a binary grep yet.
