I am fairly new here, been running fedora for a bit. When I initially installed fedora, I was using the live version and I accessed a external Western Digital (usb external) hard drive. I believe the drive is USB 2.0 but can be used as 1.0. After I accessed the drive from the fedora live distro it became corrupted.
I recently have gotten a seagate internal hard drive that I want to install in this (same) computer. I would like to access this from both fedora 16 64 and win xp 64, as backup storage.
Is this a realistic idea, or will I corrupt the drive as well?
I am running off of a (separate) hard drive in the machine right now, and I can put things into the windows ?partition? without difficulty, although windows doesn't seem to see the linux (fedora) partition.
Basically I want backup storage and to be able to access it, whatever I am using.
Thanks in advance,
the existing internal hard drive is reported -by the DIsk Utility- as;
C:\ 73 GB NTFS | 524MB ext4 | 176GB LVM2 Physical Volume 176GB
