I'm setting up a laptop for a friend and I'm going to put linux on it in a virtual machine and I want to make it as seamless as possible. I've mounted the \Users\Username directory in a VM before and that's not the hard part. What the issue is though is that Windows uses NTFS links from say My Documents to \Documents which linux can't see (or at least doesn't display).
My question is what would be the best way to share a user's /home directory with their \Users directory? Is there an easy way to remove all those links and force windows to not use links to their \Users\whatever directories?
Or my second thought would be to just mount it as a samba share and let the samba file system take care of all that stuff. Is that a better solution?
The goal here is that I want to make using the linux machine as seamless and painless as possible.
