I have a few users sharing a computer and accessing content (pictures, audio, video recordings etc) that other users save. I need a shared drive for this content. File permissions, access control or overwriting is not an issue - just need a simple method to share files, in fact, without worrying about ownership and read-write privileges.
I used to have a hard-drive partition that was formatted NTFS which so far served this purpose, but I am getting tired to having to run chkdsk every now and then so am looking for a solution that is more native to Linux.
Unlike this question, this is not about the path of the directory, but about the way to implement the store - e.g., Filesystem, share configuration etc.,.
This setting is required only for this shared folder- otherwise, these users and their (other) data needs to be kept private like in any standard Linux installation.
