/home in an NTFS partition is not advisable as Linux cannot preserve ownership and permissions on NTFS partition.
I would recommend keeping /home in the default
/ partition in the SSD and creating sym links to the folders with most data (Documents, Music, Pictures, videos etc.) in a "Storage" partition formatted NTFS, that both Ubuntu and Windows can read and write to.
/home also stores all your config files, keeping
/home in the
/ partition in the SSD helps keep things speedy.
A detailed How To is at: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/35807/how-to-harmonize-your-dual-boot-setup-for-windows-and-ubuntu/
After following the instructions in the "How To" create the sym links like this:
- Open Nautilus and delete the folders you will not use in
/home/[user], such as Documents etc. You should already have
Documents etc. in the Storage folder. (In linux a partition is a
folder as well).
- Navigate to the Storage folder and you will see the Documents etc.
- Right click on Document folder and select make Link. This will
create a folder Called "link to Documents".
- Similarly, create "Link to Music", "Link to Pictures" and all the
other sub-folders in the Storage folder.
- Copy these "Link to..." folders to your Home folder
- Finally, right click on "Link to Documents" and rename it
"Documents". Repeat for the remaining links.
Delete the folders in /home/[user] as before.
Open a terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T and enter
ln -s /media/storage/Documents /home/[user]/Documents
ln -s /media/storage/Downloads /home/[user]/Downloads
ln -s /media/storage/Public /home/[user]/Public
ln -s /media/storage/Pictures /home/[user]/Pictures
ln -s /media/storage/Music /home/[user]/Music
ln -s /media/storage/Videos /home/[user]/Videos
Hope this helps
