Read-Write access in external drive
I've just acquired an external drive of 40Gb which has NTFS file system. I'm trying to save all my files and folders from the disk to the external drive.
So, to do this, I mount the drive and try to change the read-write permitions. When I do this, it doesn't let me do it because it's an NTFS filesystem, and tells me I should do this manually. I try to do this through the console:
$ chmod 777 /mnt/sda1
but again says it's a read-only filesystem.
Can anyone help me with this? I really need to pass these files to a safe place, so I can format the whole disk on my laptop.
Thanks in advance :)
