(Solved) - linux usb external drive to ntfs(2 posts)
i need to change my linux usb ext drive back where i can access it with windows. the guy set it up where my linux file server could back up to it but i need to have it so i can use it in windows. not to familiar with linux but i am playing around with ubuntu. did find where i could format but wasnt sure if the fat format was right or not.
thanks in advance
Back up your files on the external drive to another location. Format the external drive to NTFS and then put your backed up files back on the external drive. Linux and windows can both read/write to NTFS partitions.
