I have ML installed on a 128G SSD. I have the internal HDD with my pictures and music in two separate folder. I have created sym links for these two folders and replaced my Pictures and Music folders in SSD with these sym links. The problem is that I formatted the HDD as exFAT to keep it readable to Windows and Linux in case I have any problems. And that makes iPhoto show an error as soon as it starts. It says it could not create a library because the file system does not support some properties or something like that. My solution is to not use iPhoto :-) but I was wondering if someone else has this kind of a setup and have run into any other problems. Would appreciate any advice.
Thanks.

I have had issues with data corruption on my NTFS drives with Paragon (on Lion) so I am thinking maybe just to stick with exFAT from here on out.

I have been using Tuxera NTFS on my NTFS drive and I have no data corruption with either on Lion or ML so far.
