I'm wondering if it matters which file system is used for storing windows files on a linux/samba server.
I have a pc with 2 hard drives. HDA has swap and the rest of the linux system except for /home which is on HDB. HDB is a 250 GB drive. My intentions is to use /home to store files from my Windows XP computers (3 each) and to store drive images (Partition Magic?) for back of these systems. I want to be able to restore my XP computers from the Samba server if there is a crash or virus on one of them.
So does it matter? If so, which would you recommend?
I'm new here but have read quite a few of the threads and seen alot of newbies like me getting some great help.
