Alright, a small tip for GNU/Linux users. Maybe a few GNU/Linux users will find it useful who are running their machines in dual boot mode.
If you’re a newbie, running a GNU/Linux distro that didn’t come with NTFS-3G Read/Write driver, here’s how to quickly transfer files from Linux to Windows partition:
- Fire up the cute little fdisk utility.
- Create a small (e.g. 1 GB) FAT32 partition. (Linux can read/write on a FAT32 partition.) Give it a label (e.g. Shared Files).
- Add the new partition details in your
/etc/fstabfile. Save the file.
- Mount the newly created partition.
- Copy your files to the newly created FAT32 partition.
- Restart your PC, switch to Windows and voila! You can access the shared files.
