I was running out of space on my ext3 root volume , so I created a Ext4 Volume as a file and saved it on a NTFS partition. Then made this ext4 vol as a permanent mount.
Purpose was to have all the linux file permissions but NTFS doesn't allow this.
Is it the right approach ? I see a lot of IO happens on the NTFS partition when i access the mounted (ext4) vol, Is it ok ?
