Hi I installed Win 7 (~108GB NTFS), and then added Ubuntu 16.04 64bit (~34GB ext4 + 6GB swap) on my 250GB SSD, and left around 90GB (NTFS) - D drive in a common partition where I wanted to keep my data.
Now there have been some issues starting with:
A folder in D that I renamed in Ubuntu didn't get renamed in windows till I booted again into both OSes.
My external HDD (NTFS) occasionally started suffering stuck videos that'd stay stuck in my Win too until I diskchkd and repaired it.
This is where it gets serious.
a. A folder I totally modified in Linux (ran script to compress jpegs, sorted, copied them) seemed to look as it was before the modifications in Windows. (perhaps because I'd only sent deleted stuff to the trash)
b. On returning to Ubuntu, emptying the trash and then booting to Windows, windows ran a preboot diskcheck and deleted some stuff, and then I only saw remnants of the original files, and no newly created files.
c. Alarmed, I returned to Ubuntu, and those files disappeared from there too, and there was a new folder Found, where they (and also my complete dropbox folder) seemed to have migrated too, losing their rather complex folder structure.
This is rather problematic, if I have to repair it myself, and needs a change to be sustainable. What am I doing wrong, and what should I do now?
Thanks in advance.
PS: Also, on restoring from hibernate I keep getting the message that my dropbox folder is missing (Please exit or relink.), since D takes a while to mount. Dunno if they're related.
