I have a Win7 box with an Ubuntu 10.10 VM accessed in Virtualbox.
The Ubuntu install has the ex4 filesystem. Can I access the shared folders in both Windows and Ubuntu without corrupting the data?
I made this mistake when dual-booting my laptop and made changes to a folder in Ubuntu. When I tried accessing that data in Windows, the access time was very slow, basically about 10% of normal. The only way I could fix it was to restore the data from backups and not make changes in Ubuntu.
If I do this with the shared folders, will the same thing happen?
