I formatted a file system in Linux using
sudo mkfs.ntfs, and ran a script that ended up generating up to a Terrabyte of information. I need to process this information in Windows. As it turns out, this filesystem cannot be read in Windows. I thought it was because the filesystem created is actually a
fuse NTFS file system -- however, I formatted another partition in NTFS in Windows, and the filesystem it generated has the exact same flags:
type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,default_permissions,allow_other,blksize=4096,uhelper=udisks2)
except the block size of my filesystem is 2048, whereas Windows's filesystem's block size is 4096.
Do you have an idea why the filesystem formatted in Linux refuses to be recognized in Windows 10? Can I somehow make it recognized in Windows without reformatting? What should have I done differently to make sure the file system that's created is recognized in Windows?
For the second partition, I deleted it in Windows, and created it anew, formatting it in NTFS. I then went to Linux, and ran the same
mkfs.ntfs command that I ran on the first partition, and the partition is still recognized in Windows. So it is probably not the formatting that made a difference.
Maybe the partition start and/or end location? I set the first partition to start at sector 2048, so that might have something to do with why Windows is not recognizing it...
