Re: [nslu2-general] Can hard drives be hot swapped and used on PC?
- Your description below using NTFS/FAT32 is exactly what the official does.
Except i don't think you can hotswap meaning you'll need to reboot the NSLU2
every time you add/remove a drive. What you won't have is the user
security/permissions if attached drives were formatted with ext3 (the native
NSLU2 format). That means anyone on the LAN can read the info...
I'm not planning on doing anything fancy, so I would probably stick to
the official Linksys firmware. I would like to have two hard drives
hooked up (possibly more in the future if a hub can be used). The
file systems of the drives would be either NTFS or FAT since I run
The drives will be plugged into the slug when I'm at home. When I'm
at school I would like to have those drives plugged into my laptop
instead (the slug would stay at home). This is why I'd like to be
able to connect/disconnect drives to the slug without reformatting.
If this is not possible with the official firmware I would consider
using Unslung. :)
