NTFS and my Network
I had a large ~250Gb fat32 partition on my computer, which I left as Fat so that I could share files between Ubuntu and XP. What a stupid idea that was. I neglected to remember that fat32 cannot handle files of more than 4.7Gb, which meant storing DVD isos was impossible. I’ve been having to work around this ever since because I never had the space to backup the files. But now I do.
So, Two-Face pulled an all-nighter and copied ~130Gb of data to the Server. After that I install ntfs-progs to let Gparted play nicely with NTFS, formatted the partition, and began copying the data back. At 10Mb/s. It took almost three hours, but now its back, and I can store my DVD isos with all the other OS isos.
Gotta love having space By the way, here’s my conky network manager after all had been said and done. Thats a sizeable chunk of my download allowance eh?😉
