Quick question, permissions on NTFS
I installed a Linux distro on a friends computer yesterday, dual booting with WinXP.
All the user data is on a sata disk formatted in NTFS. Obviously. Now my friend wants to be able to access this data from within Linux. This was possible from the root account, but not from the user account. I tried to set the permissions, but to no avail.
What would really help me is if someone could post a working line of fstab here. One that gives any user read/write on the NTFS part of the system. Thanks!Can't tell an OS by it's GUI
Hi Freston !
Set umask value to zero for NTFS partitions in /etc/fstab file. It will enable read/write access to all regular users.
/dev/<partition> /<mount_point> ntfs defaults,umask=0 0 0

Well, I'm a bit of a dual boot myself, on the one hand working in a mental facility supervising mentally handicapped, on the other hand I have my own business giving administrative services and council to (uninstitutionalized) physically handicapped people. So you'd expect me to be able to deal with a little distraction. But there was also beer...Can't tell an OS by it's GUI
