I am trying to copy some tar.gz and .bz2 files from my linux partition to my USB drive
some of the files copy and some dont...I get the following errors

I mounted my USB drive using ntfsmount and it mounts ok...tried copying those files to a directory in linux and that goes well too...so theres no problem with the files...any help would be greatly appreciated...thanks
I'm not sure but I think ntfsmount has just partial write support, use ntfs-3g

..sorry for the late reply...installed ntfs-3g...but when i mount my usb drive i get the following warning..
WARNING: Deficient FUSE kernel module detected. Some driver features are
not available (swap file on NTFS, boot from NTFS by LILO), and
unmount is not safe unless it's made sure the ntfs-3g process
naturally terminates after calling 'umount'. The safe FUSE kernel
driver is included in the official Linux kernels since version
2.6.20-rc1, or in the FUSE 2.6.0 or later software packages,
except the faulty FUSE version 2.6.2. Please see the next page
for more help: http://www.ntfs-3g.org/support.html#fuse26
have installed the latest version of fuse ...fuse-2.6.3.tar.gz...any ideas...
whoever is using ntfs-3g better be careful..i got a "volume is dirty" message
when i tried to mount my usb drive with ntfsmount after trying to mount it with ntfs-3g ...had to run chkdsk in windows before i could mount it with ntfsmount again....
for me the problem was solved by installing the latest version of ntfs-3g. It's the version from 2014. You can get it at *this forum is bad because I may not post the link* but anyway. google tuxera and ntfs-3g.
How is the USB drive formated many come with FAT32 so Windows, Mac, and Linux can read it. Win32 has file size and naming limits Linux filesystem doesn't.
