Shared NTFS drive: data corruption/missing files.


Ok I am having some problems. ?I have searched everywhere and have been unable to come up with a solution. ?First off I have a dual boot Win8.1/OSX 10.9 system using chameleon bootloader. ?Windows is installed on an SSD and OSX is installed on the first partition of a 1TB HD. ?The 2nd partition on the OSX boot drive is a shared drive for data. ?I have tuxera installed because NTFS-3g/osxfuse was giving me the same issue. ?


The issue is that everytime I write files from my mac install to the shared D drive and then boot into windows the files are gone. ?If I change files that were already there (example itunes library) the files become corrupted and unusable on either OS. ?When I am in Mac the files are usuable writable and seem to have no issues. ?It is only when I go back to windows I have problems. ?This does not happen on my external drive (also NTFS).


Research pointed me to hibernation issues. ?I had already disable windows hibernation via registry edit, but learned that the windows fast boot option is a type of hibernation. ?I could not find the option to disable fast boot on my PC and realized it is because it is a laptop. ?I went ahead and disabled this feature with a bat file i downloaded anyway. ?The problem I saw with this theory is hibernation files of any kind should be written to the C drive, which I have disabled from mounting in OSX.


This has lead me to believe it is something on my mac end. ?Has anyone experienced similar issue? have any ideas? solution?


Sorry if this is confusing it is hard to explain and search for. ?Thanks in advance for any feedback



More details on my system from my build post a while ago (since then I added the share drive and migrated my install to the larger HD. ?updated to OSX mavericks and it automatically fixed my hdmi issue.)
