Well I took a look at that site and found http://wiki.linux-ntfs.org/doku.php?...tfs_volume_too

It seems pretty clear that the the writing to NTFS partitions is not yet fully functional. It is a great project making good progress but the road map makes it clear that there is a long way to go.

The FAQ also suggests creating an EXT2 partition and using a windows driver to read and write to it. That is an alternative to a FAT32 partition.

You missed that I commented the reliability of the new driver.

And now you're talking about functionality and you also missed the "(Update: look on ntfsmount if you need write support.)" sentence right after the question, instead you quote an obsolote text.

People are using Linux-NTFS write support for a long time without any trouble (and I don't mean here the outdated driver and Captive NTFS) but you're just talking about it. From the ntfsmount page, I sent you and the page refers you quoted, write functionality seems to be around 80% and reliability 100%. This also matches my personal experiences.

OK, well anyhow Ubuntu could read and access without any problems my external 160GB NTFS hard drive, so I was pretty happy about it, since most of my backups are on this pretty convenient drive :P Too sad I can't boot from that USB drive, it would be much more space than my tiny 30GB laptop HD.
