  So, the question... what FS to use which is good and reliable in both
windows and also linux  ?

  Is there any file system in linux which can work in windows also
(meaning it can be read and optionally written-to in windows even if the
FS is not in a partition) ?

I wonder if nowadays UDF could be used to deal with this problematic :-?
Tried it. UDF from udftools(1.0.0b2 ) on etch creates an UDF which is not working with windows. I am then left only with an option to use the backup only with linux. For data in windows, ntfs partitions can be mounted in linux and then copied over to the backup disk. The external disk can _only_ be used in
linux and not in windows.
