- Now that I got Slimserver running, I'm on to my next project...
I have a Drivestation 160 (Buffalo external harddrive) connected to
After successfully formating on the linkstation and successfully
accessing the drivestation (it comes up as "usbdisk1" , I connected
the drivestation to my WinXP box. It connected at the USB level, but
of course since it was formatted in ext3, windows couldn't read it. I
reattached to the linkstation. It connected to the linkstation at the
USB level, but I could not longer access the "usbdisk1" folder until I
reformated the drivestation.
Question 1: What did winxp do to the drivestation? Why did I have to
reformat in order to use it?
What I would really like is to partition the drivestation so I can
have say 2/3 visible to the linkstation, but still have 1/3 formatted
as NTFS so I could directly connect to a winxx box. When I
partitioned using WinXP, then reconnected to the linkstation and
reformatted, linkstation wiped out the partition and formatted the
whole 160 GB as a single partition.
Question 2: Any idea how I could partition the drivestation and
change the linkstation so that the linkstation honors the partition?
Also, I don't want to have to reformat the drivestation just because I
connected to the win box.
