Yes (also in addition to the above, Windows filesystems will be a bit slower and case sensitivity may be an issue with Linux software as Linux file systems are case-sensitive while Windows file systems aren't)
hmmm... hypothetically, if I save image.png and Image.png on the shared partition on Linux, then view the files on Windows 7, what happens?
To make a quick test, I created 2 text files on Linux test.txt
and Test.txt test.txt
: "This is a lower case file" Test.txt
: "This is a upper case file"
Saved them both as windows coding to avoid any possible problems there.
I booted Windows 10
and while it saw both files, it didn't allow me to open the lower case file test.txt
. Everytime I tried to open it or view its content, it opened the Test.txt
So I might say that for this experiment windows saw both files but treated them as same, choosing the upper case file even when I tried to open the lower case.
BTW, allow me to share my own configuration. 1TB disk, with triple booting: Linux Mint 19.3, Windows 10 and Manjaro Linux.
I have a DATA partition which is 400 GB in size that is shared by all those operating systems and haven't had a problem so far (lucky?). Advantages of that is:
1. I can work on the same files (docs, excel, etc) on all operating systems.
2. I can install a program on windows and run that program on Linux simply by double clicking using WINE. Games like Baldur's Gate series(all infinity engine games in fact), Neverwinter series, Dragon Age: Origins, work perfectly that way and I can continue my saved games in any operating system... (when I find time that is)
3. For 2, if I want to "fine-tune" the wine or use a special wine configuration, I simply create a Play on Linux (POL) partition and direct it to the executable. I find this super handy since I can do any configuration without actually changing the program or even installing it.
