I have recently reached a fork in the road where I need to dual-boot my computer because I need linux for some projects and I cannot run it in a virtual machine for what I need. My other OS is windows 10.
I know from the past that there have been times when writing to an NTFS partition was not a good idea. My problem is this: I am using Dropbox which currently resides on a windows partition. If I install linux and dropbox, can I still keep it on that NTFS partition and use it normally? Or do I have to make a copy on an ext4 partition?
I was hoping that modern linux versions (and why not, modern windows) have solved whatever problems there were in the past.
