This is admittedly only an inconvenience. Having to copy the file over from its native NTFS to an EXT3 partition just to be able to open it and then to have to copy it back to the NTFS partition once it is updated is work that I would prefer to avoid. I would have thought that support of files on an NTFS partition would be high on the list of desirable features for a Windows emulator package. Therefore I would appreciate a more elaborate explanation.
