Thread: USB Harddisk. Does it support NTFS at all?

  1. Yes this setup is deffently the best solution for me.

    So i just create theese to partition an mount them on my router.

    Then its possible to acess them through "Windows network neighbourhood"? As 2 individual partitions?

    The only problem if this is the perfect working solution, is getting samba running


    ------------------

    I suddenly remembered why i don't have thought of this solution. I have once tried it. But when formating from fat32 to ext2, i lost about 4.5 gb of space on my harddisk. I browsed it with partiton magic 8, and its showed my the following:

    Total amount of disk space: 47.1 gb
    Total amount of disk space free: 43.2 gb

    But where are the lost disk space? What are the ex2 partition using the 4gb to?

    If i format it fat32, i get full 47.1gb of space. ?

    Just a little extra question

    BTW: It is possible to mount ext2/ext3 under windows - search for IFS drives on google, works perfectly...

    Is it possible to format a disk using ext2/ext3 under Windows, using IFS drivers ?

    No. As far as I know.
    I have used the Ubuntu Live CD to format the disk for Asus firmware.
