Filesystem to share between Windows and Linux
I'm not quite a newbie, but I am when it comes to filesystems.
I've replaced my Windows with Ubuntu. I keep all my data on a slave drive, formatted in NTFS. The idea is that when I reinstall OSes, I can easily keep all my data safe. NTFS is read-only in Linux, which is a pain. I need a filesystem that can be read/written in both Linux and Windows (in case I need to reinstall it) AND a way of converting NTFS to it. I don't have a copy of partition magic, but maybe I could get hold of one. A free way would be better... I hear ext2 can be read/write in Windows but couldn't find the details of how.
Does anyone have any cunning ideas about which FS to use?
