[SOLVED] Editing fstab to allow RW access for all users to a NTFS partition
Sometimes Linux just make you want to throw the PC out of the window, and get a
new one with WINDOWS on it!!!
Here is the relevant part of my fstab (I think!):
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-Maxtor_7L300S0_L60LCJ0G-part1 /windows/D ntfs-3g users,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=en_GB.UTF-8 0 0
- Why is this labelled "D", when it is "C"
Having only just "got" the idea that there are a nunber of ways of issuing chmod, I now find that there is yet another when in the fstab file. It is an easygoogle to find out a workaround to make this drive RW, but doing that way one does not learn what is actually happening.
how do I find out UID and GID?
fmask and dmask, how do I find out what the current settings mean, and what they should be to allow RW access for various groups/users or for everyone?
