I’ve been dual-booting Debian 8 and Windows 10. As I’ve acquired a big SSHD, I decided to clone my Windows installation with VMware standalone converter and run in a VMware VM under Debian using virtual disks.
The idea was to avoid too much re-booting at the expense of Windows running more slowly. This trade-off would become less expensive as I come to use Debian more and Windows less.
The virtual and the native Windows both run syncthing (and SyncTrayzor) use the same certificate and, I would expect, look the same to other nodes.
I’ve also synced much of my data from the VM to Debian. Thus I have data triplicated on the one drive.
I’m not booting the native Windows these days, so it merely serves as a point in time backup.
But let’s suppose I give up on the VM and go back to dual-booting. Is there anything I need to consider from the syncthing point of view before booting Windows natively? Will it just sync the backlog from the Raspberry Pi and carry on as normal?
Is there any reason I can’t switch between native and vm at will?
