OpenSUSE Hardware :: Failure Mounting External NTFS Drive And Internal NTFS Partition / Fix This?

Jul 18, 2010

Just installed 11.3 on my computer, however when I connect an external NTFS harddisk I receive an error message. When I open dolphin to connect to an internal NTFS partition I receive the message:

Anyone having an idea how I can fix this?

Ubuntu :: Mounting NTFS Drive After Windows Failure?

Feb 1, 2011

I've been working for a while to help a friend re-activate her system after a Windows crash. I tried every way I could to restore Windows, but the system is thoroughly bollixed. The data is still there on the disk, and you can read/write if you boot off of external media. I backed up her data that way.

Details if you need them, but for now suffice it to say that I finally got her up and running by installing Xubuntu Lucid in a dual-boot setup. However Xubuntu isn't automatically recognizing and mounting the NTFS partition the way I would expect it to. I had her run a few commands in the terminal, and here's what she got.

Output from sudo fdisk -l:

Disk /dev/sda: 82.3 GB, 82348277760 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 10011 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes


Ordinarily I'd use mkdir then mount to solve this. But I'd like to check a few things before I go and do that.

First, as I understand it if a Windows instance is not shut down properly it can make it difficult for Linux to mount the partition. The usual solution is simply to reboot Windows and then shut down properly, but that's impossible in this case. Will that affect the mkdir/mount solution?

Second, the fact that /dev/sda1 doesn't even show up in fstab causes me some concern. Would that be a problem for mkdir/mount?

And third, how to I set it up so the NTFS partition mounts automatically?

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.

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 :: Default Permissions On External NTFS Partition?

Aug 15, 2011

When my external USB-HDD with NTFS auto-mounts, the default permissions are set to drwx------ 1 userid users. So only I have read-write but all others have no permissions at all. This is annoying because I have pictures on this drive that I share via an apache web server running as wwwrun. So I wonder how I can change the default permissions to something like rwxr--r-- so that apache can access the pictures?

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:


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.

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?

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.

Ubuntu :: 11.4 - Mounting Hibernated NTFS Partition

May 29, 2011

I am running 11.4 from a thumb drive,mainly because something is fishy with my main hard drive, but installation is not my reason for this thread (though I think fixing one problem will remedy the other). My winbloze install is short stroked with ~50gb for OS and ~200gb for media storage. I have no problem accessing the storage from windows, but I am unable to mount the storage partition under Ubuntu. I get the following error:

Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 14: Hibernated non-system partition, refused to mount.
Failed to mount '/dev/sda2': Operation not permitted
The NTFS partition is hibernated. Please resume and shutdown Windows properly, or mount the volume read-only with the 'ro' mount option, or
mount the volume read-write with the 'remove_hiberfile' mount option.

For example type on the command line:
mount -t ntfs-3g -o remove_hiberfile /dev/sda2 /media/Laptop Storage

When I run that command, I get this:
su: invalid option -- 't'

Server :: Mounting NTFS Partition In REHL5

May 29, 2009

I want to mount ntfs partition in rhel5 I searched a lot in google and finally understood that these three RPMS are must to mount ntfs partition in rhel5. My kernel version vmlinuz-2.6.18-53.el5. As per instructions in the net I downloaded these rpmms

First and second rpms are installed successfully but third is showing errors saying
rpm -ivh fuse-kmdl-2.6.18-53.el5-2.7.1-6_7.el5.i686.rpm
Failed dependency
/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-53.el5 is needed by fuse-kmdl-2.6.18-53.el5-2.7.1-6_7.el5.i686.rpm

But I copied vmlinuz-2.6.18-53.el5 in /boot even though it is saying dependencies missing
#rpm -qa | grep kernel
#modprobe fuse
FATAL: module fuse not found
#uname -a
Linux 2.6.18-53.el5xen.

My query is that why am unable to install the kernel module. Currently running kernel-xen-2.6.18-53.el5. I tried in another system above three rpms were installed successfully without any errors. What was the reason for my system.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Mounting Hardware-RAID 1 NTFS Partition?

Mar 5, 2010

I have a dual-boot setup with winXP and openSUSE 11.2. I have both XP and SUSE partitions on a 160g HDD and then a Hardware RAID 1 array of 2 320g HDDs. The RAID arrray contains all my media/data files on an NTFS partition. For some reason SUSE shows both individual 320g disks mounted in the file system, but not the RAID array. If I attempt to browse either of the disks, I get an error and can't view them. How do I mount the RAID NTFS partition?

If I unmount it and then manually do:

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.

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.
