In September I asked about dual booting Ubuntu with Windows 8:
This was successful and is working well for our friends in France.
I did not realise at the time that data could not be shared between the two systems, but that was not of great importance in that instance.
7Now I have a spare machine with a 2TB drive, Windows 7 pro and Ubuntu 12.04LTS. I would like to set this up to dual boot with a large shared data drive. I have read quite a bit about it but there seems to be conflicting advice. Is it possible and, if so, how?
