For the rest of us that are ensconced in a Windows world I welcome the security and journaling of NTFS.Of course. That is entirely reasonable. NTFS is much better than the older Microsoft file systems. Now if they would get rid of the need to defragment them ... .Convert your K:\ to NTFS or if (as I supect) its a share from your Linux box - use the Linux box to tarball it to tape - that should suit what you need.Exactly. The only reason that partition is FAT32 is so I can read and write it from Linux. And I do back it up by reading it in Linux. To Linux, it is just another partition, and I can back it up the same way as I do the other files. I do not happen to use tar; instead, I use cpio. But that does not matter much.I just would have preferred to do it when Windows 7 was running so all the Windows stuff would be together. I guess I no longer can have that. Such is progress. I set it up so I could back up from Linux as an extra -- belt and suspenders thing.Its asking a lot for a client OS to back up LAN attached drives. If they are LAN attached whatever attached them to the LAN should back them up. Actually, until I got this new machine, I did backup that partition that was mounted on one Linux machine through a LAN to the other machine. But I am trying to simplify things so it no longer goes through that LAN anymore.
