I have 3 operating systems in my computer : Windows 10, Ubuntu Gnome 16.04 LTS and ArchLinux. I use all of them for my different works.

I use a FAT partition to share data into the different operating system. But some files disappears when I restart to change the OS.

That is my fstab configuration to mount the Windows partitions. The NTFS partition is mount in read-only. And the FAT partition is mount in read-write.

UUID=DDCE-3B7D                    /SHARED           vfat   rw,fmask=1117,dmask=0007,uid=1000,gid=1000,user          0 2
UUID=20F024C1F0249F52             /WIN              ntfs   ro,fmask=3337,dmask=2227,uid=1000,gid=1000,nofail,user   0 2

I don't understand why some files disappear when I restart ? Maybe there is a configuration which need to does in Windows?

  • I don't know if this is the cause of your problems, but if you dual (or triple) boot, make sure you have Windows 10 fast boot disabled. – Johan Myréen Jan 17 '17 at 11:59
  • I said that an example would be useful, you gave another explanation. (also please put new info into question). – ctrl-alt-delor Jan 17 '17 at 13:15
