comment Why doesn't the tilde (~) expand inside double quotes?
Or you can just not quote the ~, for example ls -l ~/"My Documents"

comment `test` and `[` - different binaries, any difference?
They're hardlinks to the same inode on my system. The benefit of this over symlinks is that if the symlink target gets removed or moved, the symlink no longer works. If one of the hardlinks to an inode gets moved or removed, all the hardlinks continue to work.

revised How can I determine if running tar will cause disk to fill up
Remove redundant "f -" argument from tar commands. tar writes to stdout by default, no need to go to extra trouble to command it to do what it does by default.

comment Why can I not see some files in my USB stick on Windows that I can see on Linux?
And point #3 does not seem relevant - it's about files from Windows not appearing when an NTFS volume is mounted by the NTFS-3G driver, but the OP is having the opposite problem.

(1) What file system is the drive formatted with? (2) Can you show us a detailed listing of the drive from both Windows and Linux?

Point #1 is not accurate. Windows does not use NTFS streams (aka Alternate Data Streams) on files to implement volume shadow copies. "delete files from an ntfs3g mount without properly handling Windows typed permissions on the disk" does not make sense - if you delete items, they're gone and their permissions are gone too.
