Got a serious problem with F14 x64, writting to a drive is corrupting the file system.
I need to be able to r/w to a portable drive and exchange data between Win and Linux machines.
First the hardware a sata drive in a sata to usb box. Pretty basic setup a 120 gb notebook drive.
Worked fine on the win side but when I copy files from linux box to drive, the ntfs file system comes corrupted. This has happend on several occassions
I connect drive to linux box, it gets mounted, I copy the files I need in either direction, then do a safe remove.
When I connect the drive to a win machine it reports it can't read the drive and needs to be formatted, chkdsk on a win box doesn't work. If I reconnect to drive to another linux, it states chkdsk need to be run and rebooted twice.
What am I doing wrong or is ntfs still not well supported (usage is risky?) in Fedora?
Should I be using a different Fs and is so any suggestions? I can't recall if fat32 supports drive this large.
Now I'm on the hunt to find tools that do filesystem recovery & reconstruction, any suggestions?
This is a serious problem and need to be resolved or a bug entry made.
