Good day, dear community!

I always have this problem: need to select filesystem for the external drive, which then will need to connect to read and write on several machines with different OS: Linux (mostly Ubuntu) and Windows(7, maybe XP).

This issue is caused by the repeated losses of data when writing to non-native FS...

Requirements:
* reliability;
* support for exotic (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, etc.) file names;
* support disk of 500 GB.

I think the answer to this question will be useful not only me.
Thank you!

unfortunately there is no options — NTFS. The reason for that of course Windows, which, though there are plugins to work with ext* but they are either paid, or work very badly. At the same time Linux has long been pretty well works with NTFS. Although I do not argue the bug is — every time you perenashivanie the same torrent under wine and Lin — Windows 100%, Linux 99,8%(tested on several dozen torrents 1 to 15гиг), I have sinned in alpha utorrent for linux, but now that's thinking that this may be a problem with NTFS. Interestingly, even when 99.8% of the files are still fully readable — video play, archives are unpacked(no information for restoration), toys/soft put...

Well, if you the screw does not transfer files larger than 4GB, you can serve old FAT32:)
