    [SOLVED] can't write to mounted ntfs external drive


    I want to make image of my slackware 13 partition with partimage. I start SystemRescueCD and mount my external drive which is ntfs formated on /home directory, but cant write to it.

    ls -l gave information that only executing is permitted.

    Try to change permission with chmod, but with no success.

    Any idea?

    kodeko did you try mounting the drive as read-write?
    Code:
    mkdir /mnt/<external>
    mount -w -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdX /mnt/<external>
