I have an ext2 formatted disk (linux) and I need to reformat it to NTFS (windows). Problem is, I have to retain the 750 GB of data that's on the disk. What's the quickest (least number of steps) way to accomplish this? I do have a spare 1TB disk now to help with the transfer.
I've been using XBMC Live for a couple of years, but with all the problems I've been having lately, I'm moving over to the Windows version. Unfortunately all of my media is stored on an ext2 formatted disk (not the same disk as the OS disk).
I was thinking of loading up an Ubuntu live disk, and installing ntfs-config. Mount my secondary disk (already formatted NTFS), transfer the files, reformat the original drive, load windows and transfer the files back.
