minor point, but you can take an ntfs partition from one machine to another
just fine if you havent set any permissions on that drive. if you have set
any permissions, depending on what you set, sometimes you have to take
ownership and clear permissions, then reset them to the values you want. i
have yet to run into any problems migrating a drive from one windows box to
another as long as the new box was the same version of windows or a newer
version. im not sure what write issues you are talking about when it comes
to a windows box and ntfs, as ive certainly never ran into any that werent
related to hardware issues or couldnt be fixed with a permissions reset.
i cannot comment on linux ntfs write support, ive never looked that much
into it. i have used it successfully in the past, but that was for some
minor things like deleting a virus offline or making a backup copy of some
havent read the rest of your report, looking forward to it. for now im
running out to help a friend celebrate their 21st bday....
