    Exactly. ntfs-3g works very well when you need to access a NTFS partition. I, too, use it and haven't run into a single issue. Linux partitions reside on an external USB drive, and the internal hard drive on the notebook is Win 7.

    So maybe an NTFS partition without an installed OS in it for file sharing by both the Linux OS and the Windows OS. But, a FAT32 would ensure almost universal accessibility.
    GParted can resize both the /home partition and the Windows partition to make room for the shared NTFS partition.

    BTW, I believe TTIO has left the building.

    NTFS would be a better solution due to the smaller block size. Fat32 is beyond wasteful.
