I have moved my Windows user profile to a separate partition in order to share it with my linux install. I have originally tried to make a
NTFS formatted data partition, but this creates some issues on linux (the worst one being apparently that I have no sound after logging in).
My next approach would be to format the data partition with
ext4 and use ext2fsd to "mount" it in Windows. ext2fsd seems to be reasonably fast for storing my user profile, although it does not support Windows acls.
Is this going to work?
(I'm using Windows 8.1 64-bit with ext2fsd 0.62 and Ubuntu 15.10)
