Switching from Ubuntu to WHS | What about HDDs? Tags: Ubuntu Servers Storage commissarmo December 21, 2012 8:31:17 AM Hello, I'm switching my Ubuntu Server to Windows Home Server2011 (it's just easier for me since I only run Windows machines at home). I am wondering though if anything need be done about my server HDDs, which are storing data emplaced on them by the Ubuntu system. Does Ubuntu format the disks to ext4, or other Linux data formatting schemes, that won't work when Windows is installed? If so - is the general procedure to do something like this (change OS) to just copy the data elsewhere, reformat to NTFS, and then install Windows and rewrite the data? Thanks!
