comment Can history files be unified in bash?
Better: PROMPT_COMMAND="$PROMPT_COMMAND"$'\n''history -a; history -n'

The export is not necessary. Because interactive shell options are supposed to be set from ~/.bashrc which is called from every sub shell, so inheritance is not necessary.

An awful solution to a basic shell programming problem. The right way: PROMPT_COMMAND="$PROMPT_COMMAND; history -a; history -n"

comment How to format an external hard drive as UDF on a Mac
-1 because you're claiming it is mainly read only, and you can encounter some errors without backing your statement with references.

comment How to format an external hard drive as UDF on a Mac
Revision 2.60 of UDF wastes space with an additional partition for metadata. This feature is useful to increase performance for DVD/BD media, but it is useless on hard disk and flash as it will reduce write performance. I recommend to use instead revision 2.01.

comment Why does BitLocker need a minimum volume size of 64 MB?
The present of BitLocker is much more unclear. I would recommend to stay on TrueCrypt 7.1a and not upgrade until the situation is really clarified.

See also the script from Pieter Wuille that automates the UDF creation process and makes a partition table for better compatibility. I posted it as an alternate solution.

This is probably a permission issue. This question may have useful answers to solve our problem.

This works only for the current window. This isn't remembered, and the resizing still occurs, even if I change the "default" settings. Cmd.exe windows are fine.
