We all know W10 is spyware disguised as an operating system, but in the absence of W7, it's all we have for games. My question is that if I dualboot Ubuntu with Win10, will its feely data-tentacles be safely cordoned away in its own partition?

    This is an Ubuntu support venue, not a Windows complaint and rant venue. We would prefer that you avoid slandering other OS here. – user535733 Sep 25 '18 at 23:03

Windows cannot natively read Ubuntu's default ext4 filesystem format. Writing to an ext4 partition in Ubuntu from Windows is possible only if an application to read/write ext4 partitions is installed in Windows.

In the Ubuntu installer there is an Encrypt the Ubuntu installation for security option which provides an additional level of security.
