I have a disk formatted as NTFS that I current use for sharing data with Windows machines via Samba. All of the data is in a directory on that disk called "shared." I want to move my current home directories to a directory on that disk called "home." The drive is mounted automatically at the location "/media/data."
I have a couple questions concerning this move.
1) How to I make sure Ubuntu is aware of the change?
2) I realize there will likely be permission-related issues with this move. I'm not familiar with permissions in NTFS (or really with NTFS on a technical scale at all), but would it be enough just to chown/chgrp/chmod everything back to what they were before the move, or is there a more formal way of doing this?
Edit: I realize I may not have made it clear what it is I'm doing that requires my disk to be NTFS and why I'm putting my home directories on it. The "shared" directory is mostly used by Windows machines and houses quite a few large files (larger than 4GB, which is why FAT32 isn't an option). I'm wanting to move all of the data off of the disk that has the Ubuntu OS on it and put it on the NTFS disk in question, which includes home directories.
Edit 2: Instead of moving the home directories, I'll just be storing data on the NTFS drive and symlinking them as necessary, as suggested in the comments under the answer marked correct.
