Hi
Kindly do not mount an NTFS partition in write mode because it may crash your Windows OS.
Thanks

The ntfs write feature is very unstable in linux kernel and will almost always corrupt the ntfs partition. Avoid it at all cost.

The NTFS Write feature was not compiled in your kernel.
Why do you insist on writing to ntfs partition? It will definitely corrupt it.

Hi
You can creat a FAT32 partition to share data b/w the two OSes.
Thanks

Hi
I dont think that now you can convert your drives to FAT32. It is very dangerous and also can make your drives inaccessible. I think you have to reformat your drives with FAT32 and also have to reinstall your Windows OS again.
Thanks
