My current setup is that I have: 1TB HDD split with Windows OS and Ubuntu OS (with system and Swap of course) 2TB HDD for all my docs
What I want to be able to do is whether I am in Windows or Ubuntu be able to use the 2TB HDD to access all my docs. I have tried this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Partitioning/Home/Moving but as the second drive is formatted to NTFS it changes the owner of my home directory to Root and I cannot chown it to me. Even if I use gksude nautilus and try it in a gui, as soon as I select my user name as group:owner it changes back to Root straight away. This also knock out pulseaudio as it says it is not owned by me.
Then I tried http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/35807/how-to-harmonize-your-dual-boot-setup-for-windows-and-ubuntu/ but this is flawed as then your home directory with all my documents (music, video etc) is not accessible through a terminal command ~/Music.
Has anyone been able to do this successfully?
The best thing would be if I could get thatfirst link to not change my home directory to be owned by root. Then I can just realign the libraries in Windows.
