I have a multi-boot MBP retina;
(from linux mint 17.3 and last col. from windows diskpart):
tool sudo blkid gksudo gparted windows 10 diskpart Win10_GUI /dev/sda1 EFI - vfat EFI - fat32 fat32 fat32 /dev/sda2 BOOTCAMP - ntfs BOOTCAMP - ntfs ntfs ntfs /dev/sda3 DATA - hfs+ DATA - hfs+ ntfs raw /dev/sda4 OSX - hfs+ OSX - hfs+ raw raw /dev/sda5 Recovery - hfs+ Recovery - hfs+ hfs+ /dev/sda6 swap swap raw /dev/sda7 mint - ext4 mint - ext4 ext3 /dev/sda8 swap swap raw
I disabled journaling btw
My question was which tool do I trust (I forgot long time ago how I formatted them) to tell which partition is of what type?
This came about because my windows 10 used to be able to read and write to my DATA partition (as did my others) but ever since I tried a trial version of Paragon, windows always wants me to format DATA (which it calls now D:) instead of opening it like I used to. It also is the same with E:\, which used to be able to be read and written to - it is where linux lives.
I remember I formatted everything using Mac software via Bootcamp, so Mac (and via Bootcamp drivers) and Windows could work with them. I then installed Win10 & lastly Mint and so it seems that these changes weren't reflected by Mac or Win10 and so it could still access them. I'm guessing the bootcamp drivers were why I could access my shared partition (hfs+)
I just installed a trial version of MacDisk 10 and now the labels I used on the partitions when they were created are back - so it seems to me that Paragon wasn't that great... or it initially "killed" my bootcamp drivers?
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Though I suppose I'll just drop $50 for macdrive...
But my real question is if there is an easy way to get my bootcamp drivers to again read/write to my shared partition DATA. DATA was originally partitioned in mac to be hfs+, but then changed to something else - I can't remember, nor figure out from these terminal commands. All I know is I could read/write to it via all three OSs.
Hope this was clear...
update Regarding first comment...
