General :: NTFS Drive Recognized As Vfat?

Jan 5, 2010

I have NTFS partition which is recognized as vfat in /etc/fstab. Here is my /etc/fstab:

Code:

/dev/sda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/sda4 / ext3 defaults 1 1

General :: Vfat Partition Not Recognized By Windows 7?

Dec 13, 2010

I have a 320GB external HDD with 2 partitions, both primary:

1. vfat 100GB
2. ext3 remainder

Both were formatted when I created them with qtparted. Windows 7 sees them, and says they are healthy, but does not recognize the vfat partition. Is it too big, perhaps? Short of moving everything off the vfat partition and recreating it with W7, how do I fix it? I think W7 uses some sort of extended fat32 now?

Hardware :: Ran Mkfs.vfat Over Top Ntfs Partition - Any Way To Restore Ntfs Partition Info?

Oct 12, 2010

I was attempting to format a flash drive, and well, used the wrong sdX device. I've run DiskInternals Partition Recovery tool, and all my files are still there (you have to pay $139 to have it restore the files). Is there any way using tools in linux to restore the ntfs partition/files? It was a single disk with the partition taking the entire drive. I've tried mounting it with the -t option, but it says invalid ntfs signature. Man, two lessons the hard way, make sure you backup (duh) and be careful what you type as root.

OpenSUSE Install :: Partitioning And Mounting A VFAT USB Drive?

Jan 21, 2010

I am having trouble getting my portable hard drive to mount after partitioning it for VFAT. I originally had it partitioned as NTFS but I realized that my Xbox 360 will only mount VFAT filesystems. I believe that I partitioned it correctly with yast. However I am still having trouble mounting it. Below is the output of fdisk, mount and dmesg.

# fdisk - l

Ubuntu :: NTFS (Data And Games) Partitions Not Recognized

Apr 17, 2010

On my system I have two internal SATA Disk drives, the first one is 120GB and the second one 360GB.

120GB Disk:
1st partition: NTFS (22GB), Windows XP is installed, for playing my games.
2nd partition: NTFS (62GB), The "GAMES" partition, where all the games are installed
3rd partition: EXT4 (25GB), Ubuntu Karmic
4th partition: SWAP space

The 320GB disk is a single NTFS partition, where all my data/files are stored. A couple of days ago I used GPARTED to shrink the 320GB partition and create a new 2GB FAT32 one at the end of it. (Never had any problem before using GPARTED for any filesystem). I put in there some old dos games and rebooted to windows. Then I formatted a diskette as MS-DOS startup disk. I rebooted the computer again and and booted from the FreeDOS LiveCD. After playing for a while I tried the MS-DOS disk, to see if it performed better.

Now Windows XP does not recognize the DATA and GAMES partitions, buts recognizes the fat32 one. In ubuntu they work, but when I try to fix them, it says "run chkdsk". Windows does not recognize them so I cannot do this. I tried to restore Windows XP from a Norton Ghost Backup image file, but its LiveCD does not recognize these partitions either (norton ghost 12 uses vista to boot the live cd).

Ubuntu :: Mkfs.ntfs Partitions Are Not Recognized By Windows 7?

May 7, 2010

I formatted with mkfs.nts a USB 500 GB external drive. Under Linux when I connect it to the USB port it's recognized and works. Under windowz 7 home is's seen in the device list but not in the computer window. I can't do anything with it apart eject it. This is what I get from fdisk:sudo fdisk /dev/sdcThe number of cylinders for this disk is set to 60801.There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,and could in certain setups cause problems with:1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs(e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)Command (m for help):

and this from fdisk -ls /dev/sdc:
gt[~]$ sudo fdisk -ls /dev/sdc
Disk /dev/sdc: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes

Software :: Ntfs Volumes Aren't Recognized By Windows

Apr 2, 2011

I've made 2 ntfs volumes by mkntfs. First one is a primary partition on usb hard drive and second is a logical partition on system hard drive. I used default cluster and sector sizes in mkntfs. Under Linux these partitions are mountable by ntfs-3g, readable and writable. But fdisk doesn't recognize their filesystem type. It recognizes that as "Linux". WinXP x64 also can't recognize filesystem type of these partitions. Why windows can't work with these partitions?

General :: Possible To Format System Drive As NTFS?

Feb 2, 2010

Is it possible to format a Fat32 Ubuntu system drive to ntfs leaving the program and data undisturbed? I created a gparted liveCD and used it to format a slave drive to ntfs. It worked perfectly. Can the gparted liveCD be used on the master drive similarly without destroying the existing files on it?

General :: Unable To Write To NTFS Pen Drive

Feb 7, 2011

I am having a problem writing to an NTFS pendrive. I have created the NTFS pen drive in the following way:

Code:
fdisk /dev/sda
created the label with 'o', then written the table with 'w'

I've then gone into fdisk again :
Code:
fdisk /dev/sda
started the partition creation with 'n', and chosen 1 partition '1', then written that with 'w'

I then used mkntfs to format:
Code:
mkntfs /dev/sda1
The blkid command gives me this output:
/dev/sda1: UUID="58CEA9511D6BCEFA" TYPE="ntfs"

I can mount the pendrive (as root) with:
Code:
mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/pendrive
and the mount command output:
/dev/sda1 on /mnt/pendrive type ntfs (rw)

I have changed the permissions on /mnt/pendrive (while mounted) to 777, owner/group=root. However, when I try to copy something to the drive I get this error:
cp: cannot create regular file `/mnt/pendrive/file.txt': Permission denied

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?

General :: Mount An NTFS Drive Which Has A Different Block Size?

Mar 31, 2010

I have reformatted my hard drive with allocation size 64K(formatted on windows with 64k setting) for a better performance on my WDTV HD media player(dealing with large files).When I mount this drive on Linux, the properties tells me that"blksize=4096".If I keep writing files using this default setting(blksize=4096) to my NTFS formatted hard drive, will my WDTV be able to benefit from the performance improvement of 64k allocation size ?I am confused, Does it have anything to do with "blksize=4096". ?Should I try and mount my hard drive with a larger blksize ?I did some research on google but couldn't find an option to increase the blksize when mounting an NTFS pre-formatted drive

General :: NTFS Drive Damaged After Unsafe Removal From Windows 7

Jun 5, 2011

some info on the drive - it's a USB 2.0 portable hard drive (PQI H560), one partition spanning all 640GB, NTFS. Used almost exclusively on Linux (arch and ubuntu), but initially formatted on Windows 7.The hard drive has quite a lot of hard links on it, as it was a timemachine-like backup system.And now the issue itself:Today I made the mistake of taking out my portable hard drive from my Linux system and plugging it in a Windows 7 box. Everything worked nice, I took a movie from the drive, and it lay dormant for an hour or so. After that I took the drive out (forgot to unmount :/) and put it back in my Linux.

Any idea why did it break so bad? I thought NTFS was kind of durable.Best if there would be something nondestructive (be able to get the data while preserving every bit of the drive in it's current state - just to be sure it doesn't break anything)
