I'm wondering if folders work differently when set up by Linux than they do when set up by Windows.
Here's what I want to do:
- Go into Linux Mint, plug in a brand new USB stick, and create a folder on it called "backup" with four folders under it for my four different computers
- Go into Windows 7, access sub folder "A" on the USB stick (under "backup"), and drag "my documents" including sub-folders into folder "A"
- Go into Lunux Mint and add / modify / delete folders under "my documents" under folder "A" on the USB stick -- folders which were originally set up in Windows
Would I have any issues doing this?
(The reason I got suspicious is that I noticed Windows uses front-slashes between folders, and Linux uses back-slashes, so I didn't know if there was some difference in how they're structured? I had an expensive USB stick that suddenly stopped working altogether after I did something similar to what I typed out above. Coincidence?)
