I misunderstood a statement in a forum. There seems to be no really
platform independant file system without those limitations. There is no
write support for NTFS under Linux and ext2/ext3 write support under
Windows is also not supported (at least open source). I also had a look
at FreeBSD, but the same situation with UFS2.
The only possibility is to buy the drivers from Paragon.
