Claim fails. Complete lack of argument and hence, a complete lack of proof.



So, either I am a successful troll who got you to respond, or I am right.

There are two shovels over there -->

Take your pick.

"you shouldn't mount the drive under Ubuntu and have the Windows installation see the drive at all. You can run your Windows partition and then mount the Ubuntu served RAID partition as a network drive though, or as a "shared drive". Be careful that when you run Windows that the RAID is not touched at all by Windows; not mounted, not recognized, period."

What you told the user is complete and utter rubbish. What is worse, those unfortunate people using Google will find your response and probably believe it.

The one and only issue of "mount[ing] the drive under Ubuntu and hav[ing] the Windows installation see the drive at all" is that Windows does not know how to handle Linux symbolic links properly, and is likely to complain during a copy operation. Ceteris paribus, neither Windows nor Linux cares what OS sees the drive.

Now, you have verifiable data about my assertion that you are wrong. Your proof against the argument is...?

Of course, in your counter-argument, please do not forget I also asserted that the VM mounts the drive as a network resource anyway, despite your silly claim that the OP might mount the drive as a network drive; even if it was said only to cover up your in-exhaustive lack of knowledge about what you were talking about.

Attached are two images clearly showing that "you [CAN] mount the drive under Ubuntu and have the Windows installation see the drive at [THE SAME TIME]. You can run your Windows partition and then mount the Ubuntu served RAID partition [WITHOUT RESORTING TO MOUNTING IT] as a network drive though, or as a "shared drive"

Furthermore, the images clearly show that one does not need to "Be careful that when you run Windows that the RAID is not touched at all by Windows; not mounted, not recognized, period."

Now, you were saying?
whether you're right or wrong, you don't need to be an ass about it... Thanks for trying to help.

I have no input in this arguement, you just know more about this stuff than I do, but mostlyharmless was, well just as his name suggests, being mostlyharmless... he helped me get my RAID mounted, and to automount it. If you disagree with what he thinks, just tell him

Thanks mostlyharmless! don't let people like that make you stop helping us out!
