Btrfs & NTFS dual-boot

I am dual-booting windows after manjaro and I want to try Btrfs for my Manjaro. I have lots of needs of reading and writing on my 2 ntfs part (my data is stored there). I am using SSD and it seems that Btrfs is better on SSDs.

How is the support of reading and writing NTFS on Btrfs?

I use ext4 now and I am going to try some other file systems because I have occured file losts on ext4

I have a root btrfs partition, along with dual-booting windows.
You do not have to do anything to have access to your ntfs partition from Linux, there are mounted automatically. By default, you can read and write on them if i remember well.
Then, you can change the permissions in fstab of your ntfs partition according to your needs if you want.
I put them in read-only personally like so :

/dev/sda4 /mnt/win_C ntfs-3g gid=1000,dmask=027,fmask=137,noatime,nosuid,nodev,noexec 0 0

There is probably better, but it works fine for me.

As filesystem they have no interaction. It is the kernel which does the lifting.


Your question does not compute. btrfs and ntfs are both filesystem types. Reading from one does not affect the other.
