Does Linux really allow colons in file names, even on NTFS partitions? Why is that? And is there any option to set it straight, and do not allow colons (and other characters restricted by Windows) in file names when working with a NTFS partition? And do allow it for Ext2, Ext3 and Ext4 partitions?
Linux wrote some files with colons in their names to my main NTFS partition where I have Windows installed. I have since uninstalled Linux, but now I can't open these files in Windows.
