This question already has an answer here:
I often use a virtual machine to do something, but virtual hard disks are large and the SSD on my laptop is small. So I bought a 1TB HDD mobile hard drive to store most of my data. By default it is formatted to NTFS, and NTFS also has the best compatibility for Windows.
Since NTFS is not designed for Linux, are there any disadvantages of using NTFS on Linux everyday? Especially when I use virtual disks and have a lot of r/w. If not, what is the best file system choice for it?
I just don't want to reduce its lifespan.
