HOW-TO: FAT32/NTFS/ext3 for Windows/Linux cross-compatible

Recommended Posts

I own a NAS D-Link DNS-320 running fun_plug 0.7 & transmissionBT.

I just bought a Transcend 2.5 inch 2TB USB HDD which is preformatted to NTFS.

Just wondering whether my NAS(linux) can write to my USB HDD for a reliable storage for transmissionBT.

Otherwise, if writing to NTFS is unstable in linux, how should I format my USB HDD. I know I could format as FAT32... but FAT32 has a 4GB file size limit.
Is it possible to format USB HDD as ext3 (linux file system)... and still compatible/read/write by Windows XP/7/8?

I'd recommend you format the disk as ext4 and install samba on the nas.
