Apr 25, 2011

I have Debian Squeeze installed. I have 3 different HDDs, one of them is SATA, the other 2 are IDE, on one of which I have the distro installed.

How do I mount the other 2 partitions? I see them in "Places" but when I click on them I get an error message "Unable to Mount <The name of the volume> Can not get volume.fstype.alternative".

I can see both volumes in /dev/ntfs. I tried doing

General :: Mounting NTFS With Ntfs-3g And Fuse As A User?

Jan 8, 2011

On a clean install of Arch linux I edited fstab to be like so :


/dev/disk/by-id/usb-Hitachi_HTS543232L9A300_9002555dd84a21024b000000-0:0-part1 /media/EXT ntfs-3g user,rw,uid=mas,gid=users,noauto 0 0

I tried ntfs and ntfs-3g but the result is the same I can mount root but I would like to be able to mount as a user. When I try to mount as a user I get


Unprivileged user can not mount NTFS block devices using the external FUSE library. Either mount the volume as root, or rebuild NTFS-3G with integrated FUSE support and make it setuid root. Please see more information at [URL] Before installing ntfs-3g I was able to mount as a user but there was no rw permission. Any way to mount an ntfs partition as a user without suid as the message said?

General :: Cannot Access USB Ntfs File System

Feb 1, 2010

I have reinstalled my centOS linux in my laptop.

I have installed ntfs-3g by yum install fuse fuse-ntfs-3g recommended from :[url]

I have mount it to my window ntfs system and setup

Now I am able to access window ntfs system.

HOWEVER, I could not access to USB NTFS system. May I know why?

It gave me: The volumn "Expansion Drive" uses the ntfs file system which is not supported by your system

The USB drive is FreeAgent (500G). I have partitioned it to 3 parts. 1 part is ntfs. The other two is ext3. I can access ext3 smoothly.

Ubuntu :: General Error Mounting File System

Apr 13, 2011

I have a dual boot Xp and Ubuntu 10.10.

Recently I was downloading some upgrades in Ubuntu and unfortunately the power to the system got off.

Thereafter on booting it comes to the Grub menu and I'm able to select the OS from the list but if I choose Ubuntu it comes up with a message "General error mounting file system" and the terminal is activated. However, if XP is selected it boots with no issues.

/dev/sda6 is ubuntu installation
/dev/sda7 is swap partition

I went through lot of threads over the net and tried fsck, e2fsck and other variations of that command but at the end all I get the message as

it says sda6 is clean but for sda7 it says :

Superblock invalid trying backup blocks.... Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/sda7 at the end it suggests "u might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock: e2fsck -b 8193 <device>"

refering some threads here I tried my luck with live CD and the command : sudo e2fsck -C0 -p -f -v /dev/sda7

General :: Mounting An Ext3 File System Destroys Superblocks?

Jun 27, 2010

I have an image of an ext3 file system done with dd. I know that the file system is corrupted but I want to try to recover some files. Whatever I dd it again to the original partition or assign the dd image to a loop device, that's what happens:

- dumpe2fs -h gives me a valid ext3 superblock.

- as I try to mount the device read only, it fails with a bad magic number error.

- executing dumpe2fs -h again gives bad magic number error.

- trying debugfs or fsck with backup superblocks fails the same way.

For me it seems that in spite of mounting the device as read-only, mount command do something wrong with the superblock as before the mount the superblock is correct and it's there.

General :: Mount NTFS Partition Deeper In File System With Fstab?

Mar 15, 2010

I'm dual booting with Windows 7 and would like to have my windows 7 user folder mount when I boot.

After some looking around I edited /etc/fstab to add the following line:

This works. But it mounts the windows partition from the root level. I'd like to just mount C:UsersFHSM (/Users/FSHM) to /mnt/windows.

I'm trying to get it so that when I click on the windows drive I get my windows user folder instead of having to click through from C: to get to it.

I'm the only user on this system but if I created a second windows user would my home folder mount for that person too or does setting the user ID prevent that from happening?

General :: Ext4 New File System Mounting Compatibility With The Older Ext3 Type?

Sep 7, 2009

How well is the ext4 new file system mounting compatibility with the older ext3 previous Linux installations ? I refer to Ubuntu 9.04 and the new Fedora 11 which have the option to install with the ext4 file format. Will it be better if I install with the older ext3, so that I will be able to mount all other Linux from each other in a multi-boot system ?

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?

Ubuntu :: Machine Is NTFS As The File System?

Mar 28, 2011

A drive on my Linux machine is NTFS as the file system. There's a file corruption issue of some kind for copying files from the drive to another or another PC result in I/O errors. Overall, I work with 2 systems, one Windoze, the other Linux. I'm about to switch the roles of the 2 machines. The one with the corrupted ntfs partition is about to become my Windows machine and the Windows machine is going to become Linux.

Since I will be installing Windows on the machine with the problematic ntfs partition, I'm figuring at some point, Windoze chdsk will kick in and fix the drive. (Windows will be installed to another drive that is perfect right now.)

Is this a correct assumption? Or, do I do everything I possibly can to fix the corrupt partition prior to the new Windows install? If this is true, what are my options for fixing corrupted files under Ubuntu? Research I've done hasn't yielded much in results and a definitive answer for fixing corrupt files in Linux.
