Debian :: Reading An External NTFS USB Drive?

Feb 1, 2010

I've installed libfuse2 and ntfs-3g. Now when I reboot, the drive shows up in fdisk. In Gnome File system, the folder shows up in /media as /media/Storage. I didn't issue the mount command, it went there automatically. In terminal, I can access Storage and read/write to files on it. BUT, if I double-click the folder in Gnome, I get a brief glimpse of all the folders in Storage, then they disappear and the drive unmounts. The desktop icon goes away, and I can't see it when I issue sudo fdisk -l. I can get it back with a reboot. I've tried an entry in /etc/fstab, but that makes no difference. I didn't find anything specific to address this on this forum or after Googling.

Debian Configuration :: External NTFS Drive Not Mounted Writable By Default?

Feb 20, 2010

When I plug in my external USB Hard drive which is formatted as a single NTFS partition, it is recognized and mounted automatically, a nautilus window pops open. Unfortunately it is not writable. The reason is: the partition is mounted "ntfs" (which lacks write support) instead of "ntfs-3g". This is the output of mount after plugging in the drive:

$ mount | grep sdc1
/dev/sdc1 on /media/4EBC5FB82435B0EE type ntfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077)

I want this partition to be writable by just plugging it in.

The partition should not have any errors because a) I fsck'ed it windows and b) mounting it manually works:

$ sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/disk_/
$ mount | grep sdc1
/dev/sdc1 on /media/disk_ type fuseblk (rw,allow_other,blksize=4096)
$ devkit-disks --mount-fstype ntfs-3g --mount /dev/sdc1
Mounted /org/freedesktop/DeviceKit/Disks/devices/sdc1 at /media/4EBC5FB82435B0EE
$ mount | grep sdc1
/dev/sdc1 on /media/4EBC5FB82435B0EE type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096)
$ gnome-mount -nbtd /dev/sdc1
$ mount | grep sdc1
/dev/sdc1 on /media/disk type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096)

How can I get ntfs drives to be mounted as writable by default, preferrably without having to modify fstab?

Debian Hardware :: Easy Way To Mount And Unmount External USB NTFS Hard Drive

Dec 16, 2010

I am trying to mount an external USB hard drive. I'm using Debian Lenny 5. I tried to right-click on the hard drive and then select the mount command inside the gnome desktop environment but it gives me an error. Is there an easy way to mount and unmount this hard drive? The hard drive itself is formatted from the factory in NTFS. I'm going to leave it in this file format is a need to use it with Windows machines as well.

Slackware :: Reading Cdrom And External Drive In Dolphin?

Jun 12, 2010

I inserted a disc and tried to access it through Dolphin. It shows up in the directory explorer thing as a disc and with the disc name, but it has a little / thing in the bottom corner of the icon, and when I try to access it, it gives me this long error on the bottom of the file area (can't remember what all it said, something about 'harvey' and being unable to find the directory in /etc/fstab). The same thing happened with an external drive, which seemed to work fine before but now has the same problem.

Ubuntu :: How To Repair External NTFS Drive

Oct 25, 2010

I have a Seagate FreeAgent XTreme 500gb external hard drive that I'd like to partition and install another OS on. It is currently NTFS formatted, and has around 80 gb of data that I don't want to wipe. In GParted, there's a next to the partition name, and when I select "Resize/Move partition", the dialog box pops up but doesn't let me make any changes. When I view "Information" on the volume, I see the errors shown in the attached screen cap. When I select "Check", it starts to check the disk and shows an error, but before I can see what it is, the computer becomes unuseably slow and I have to reboot. In Disk Utility, it says the drive is healthy, and passes all tests.

Ubuntu :: Chown Not Working On External NTFS Drive

Feb 27, 2010

I have an external drive which is parted into two partitions:

1) ext4, with filesystem ext4 which I use for backup

2) NTFS with filesystem NTFS

Since I re-installed jaunty the NTFS partition is owned by root. Whatever I do to make it change, it doesn't work. I used:

sudo chown jan:jan NTFS
sudo chown -R jan:jan NTFS

Still it says the owner is root and also the group is root. What else do I need to do to make me owner of this partition? The fileproperties say: drwxrwxrwx Still the partition is read only for me. In ntfs-config it says: "Enable write support for external drive"

Ubuntu :: NTFS External Drive - Disappearing Folders

Jul 12, 2010

I'm using an external hard drive formatted to NTFS to keep my projects on. I edit projects from both Ubuntu and Windows XP.

After editing some files in a couple of folders on the drive I have now noticed that any Ubuntu machine I plug the drive into can see the entire contents of the drive, but now, I have 4 folders that do not appear in Windows XP. I have plugged the drive backwards and forwards between three machines now (one of them dual boot) and Ubuntu definitely finds the folders and Windows definitely doesn't. This has only happened one Ubuntu has edited files, though some of the files and folders that have been edited are still visible in XP.

I presume something went wrong whilst writing file tables or whatever they are called these days. Does anybody know how I can get the folders visible in XP again? Do I need to run something in Ubuntu or in XP to 'rescan' the drive?

Ubuntu Servers :: Mounting External Ntfs Usb Drive?

Mar 25, 2011

I have been trying to use fstab, writing a script in /etc/init.d to mount my external ntfs usb drive. I have had absolutely no luck and I have tried just about every solution I could find on the web except for writing a udev rule which I have never done so I am not exactly sure how.

My solution for the interim is to put the mount command in the rc.local file. That works, but I don't understand why I can use fstab to mount it. Putting it in the fstab gives me errors like "unknown file system" or just "An error occurred during mounting of drive" and then the booting stops. I tried using both ntfs and ntfs-3g.

Ubuntu :: Share NTFS External Hard Drive?

Apr 18, 2011

I've been searching for a way to do this with no luck. I've got a 1TB external hard drive I used to share over the network from my Windows desktop -- which is now a Ubuntu desktop.I've tried setting it up as a samba share, and the closest I've gotten is mount error(12): Cannot allocate memory. I've tried the suggestions (editing /etc/security/limits.conf), and that removed the warning I got from testparms but didn't fix the mounting on my mythtv box.

General :: Mounting External NTFS Drive With Different Driver

Feb 15, 2011

I have an Ubuntu 10.04 box that accesses NTFS drives along with ext4. Recently, I switched from ntfs-3g to Paragon NTFS driver, which is proprietary, but free of charge. It feels quite faster on my internal drives. Now I have a problem with external eSATA NTFS drive. When it is detected, I mount it via Nautilus GUI, but it gets mounted with the ntfs-3g driver. (It can be mounted via command line with the Paragon driver, but this is less convenient. How can I configure my system (is it Gnome or some system-wide configuration ?) to mount all NTFS drives with the Paragon driver?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: External NTFS USB Drive Not Accessible By Windows

Aug 11, 2010

I've been using it for a couple of years, it has been mounted various ways and into various places, for the past year under Suse 11.2

Suddenly I discover that it's not accessible in Windows anymore. Drive gets an assigned letter but can't be opened. Tried on Windows 7 and Windows Xp.

This is the current fstab line:

/dev/disk/by-id/usb-Seagate_FreeAgentDesktop_3QK0A0N7-0:0-part1/home/stan/Seagatentfs-3gdefaults,locale=en_US.UTF-800

Drive is owned by the root but permissions are set for everybody.

This is ls -l line for it's mount point

drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8192 2010-07-16 21:48 Seagate

Another weird thing about it is that if I try to copy a folder into it Dolphin gives me "can't create directory" error and then hangs. If I restart Dolpin I see that the folder has been created just fine and I can copy anything into this new folder without any problems, including creating any sub-folders.

That weirdness doesn't exist if I run Dolphin as a superuser.

I would create a separate thread for this issue if there's no connection.

For now I believe something screwed up the part where Windows reads what file system it is.

Is there a way to "unscrew" it and make sure that NTFS looks ok to Windows, too?

Backing up 750 GB drive and reformatting it is not an option in the near future and I occasionally need to take the drive and plug it into friends' Windows.

Ubuntu :: Sharing External NTFS Drive Across Multiple Users?

May 26, 2010

I have an external USB hard drive at /dev/sdb1 (NTFS)

2 users: johnny, audio

for some reason this drive is mounted at /media/TREKSTOR_ with johnny as the owner. I can't seem to chown the drive to audio. If I unmount the device, and remount it, the owner is set to johnny again. I need to access this drive from the audio account.It's a 1TB drive, so I wouldn't be able to reformat it to EXT3 easily as it's almost 60% full.

Hardware :: Western Digital External Drive Read-only Under Gentoo - NTFS?

Jun 21, 2010

I bought a Western Digital 1TB external hard drive to use with a Gentoo build. It connected beautifully, mounted visibly but despite being mounted read/write any attempt to write to it produced the error "read-only file system". I chased a number of red herrings before I found that the drive comes with an NTFS filesystem and NTFS support in my kernel was set to read-only, which I think was a default setting. Simple fix was to install a different file system - as it was a new drive there was no old data to lose.

Ubuntu Networking :: Create A Writable (preferably Nautilus Setup) Network Share On External NTFS?drive?

Jul 22, 2010

So I have the strange task of trying to make something like I said above work in Lubuntu 10.04. But every time I do, the share is not accessible because none of the important permissions (other) can be set because its, well, NTFS in linux. And I know of no way to fix it.Is there an easy way, preferably with Nautilus since the person I am setting this up for isn't a computer expert, to setup this share so thats its accessible and writable by other computers on the network?

Debian Multimedia :: KDE Reading Too Much From Network Drive

May 2, 2015

I have a server set up with Samba. On the desktop side I use KDE. I can clearly track intensive smbd activity, being the first on the iotop results page. Another thing is that after reading from the server's HDD, it seems to write on the desktop's SSD. It does this intermittently.I really want to know how can I stop this. It's very annoying and I bet I don't need it since, using previous versions of Debian, I could go well without this activity.

Security :: Reading/writing Encrypted NTFS?

Jul 25, 2010

My main workstation incorporates a mixture of ext3, ext4, and NTFS partitions scattered across a number of hard drives. Several of the ext4 partitions are encrypted, and I intend to encrypt the rest of the Linux partitions in the near future.I run VMware workstation, with several Windows OS guests, including Win2K, WinXP and Win7. My Win7 VM is installed on a virtual hard disk, and that virtual hard disk is encrypted using VMware facilities.So this leaves me with a bunch of NTFS partitions that are not encrypted. These are physical partitions on a couple of different hard drives. The reason I have them is ancient and historical, and as I have upgraded my system over time I have maintained the architecture due to the extreme difficulty of rearranging Windows systems.I still need to maintain Win2K and WinXP support, and rearranging those virtual machines would represent a hideous nightmare for me; I really want to maintain the same hard drive partition architecture.But I want to encrypt the NTFS partitions, in a fashion that can be handled by any of the Windows operating systems, AND can be accessed for read and write from Linux.Is this possible? If not using Windows facilities (I don't think ntfs-3g handles encryption, and there are known backdoors in the Windows facilities anyway), is there any third party solution that would work? Would True Crypt do the job in a fashion that would permit access from all the various operating systems, as required? I do generally mount the NTFS partitions in whichever Windows VM is appropriate, then share them out via SMB, but there are circumstances (like when a VM is not running) where I will directly hit them from Linux. So, it is possible for me to contemplate a solution that only works from Windows, but this would cost me the ability to repair/modify those filesystems directly from Linux, which under certain circumstances (a malfunction of the VM, for instance) could be a problem.

Debian Configuration :: Fdisk And NTFS Hard Drive

Aug 24, 2015

when I type 'fdisk -l' I get the following:

Device Boot Start End Sectors Size Id Type
/dev/sdb1 16065 584830259 584814195 278.9G f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sdb5 16128 584830259 584814132 278.9G 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT

I have 2 hard drives both are 278.9GB in a mirror raid 1. Why does 2 partitions show up? Are they referring to each physical hard drive? I want to believe that this is the same partition and not two different physical hard drives since both are in the same 'start' and 'end' range. Is that correct?

Debian Configuration :: Jessie Upgrade Broke NTFS Drive

Sep 22, 2015

I had a Linux server with Wheezy, I have 2 internal drive, one for linux OS, the other our Video On Demand drive that must be accessible to Windows and online. (That's why I chose NTFS, with our large video files, FAT will not work, and EXT isn't compatible with windows sharing, and I haven't gotten FTP to work right .

So I upgraded to Jessie today, and everything went smoothly until I tried to access my NTFS drive. (Named WowzaStorage)

I used FSTAB to auto-mount the drive (/dev/sdb1) to /media/ntfs/ on boot. All of this worked swimmingly on Wheezy, but since the update, something got mucked up and I cannot figure it out.

When accessing the mounted NTFS folder in /media/ (if it even shows up) gives me a 'Cannot be found' 'Input/Output error'

When in gParted to examine the drive, I can select it and view all the correct info, but I keep getting "error informing the kernel about modifications to partition /dev/sdb1/ --invalid argument"

Now first I thought maybe the NTFS driver was faulty and I removed 'ntfs-3g' and reinstalled it.

Now when I am in Terminal, after i umount and mount sdb1, I can CD to the drive but not the folders on it... Also using the File Browser, I get errors, and missing folders.

I get "Unhandled error message: Error when getting information for file '/media/ntfs': Input/output error"
