>From ntfs-3g upstream: this bug report is invalid. NTFS has several file namespaces: DOS, WIN32, POSIX. Linux, as a POSIX OS, always creates files in the POSIX namespace. Characters in the file name can be anything except '/' and '\0'. These files are accessible via the WIN API on Windows only if they don't have "forbidden" characters. To handle these files on Windows, the same way as on Linux, one needs to install the Windows Services for Unix (SFU) freely available Microsoft package.
In sort, everything behaves as it was designed. No problem on Linux and all the files are accessible if SFU is installed on Windows. If a non-posix file namespace handling is desirable on Linux then I suggest exporting the NTFS volume via Samba which should have support for restricting the file namespace to the WIN32 or DOS one. Thank you for the report, the question will be added to the ntfs-3g support page. -- forbidden characters is filenames are allowed https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/124480 You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is the bug contact for Ubuntu. -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
