In one of our client system there is a partition which shows NTFS and other partitions are ext3...the partition which shows NTFS is a seperate HDD...The NTFS partition has been mounted...but we are not able to write anything to it...but we checked in /etc/ shows 'ro' so we changed to defaults....after making chnages when we tried to remount using the command mount -o remount / shows the device is already been in use try using the command fuser or lsof.we tried fuser /partition and then killed that process..still same error.....I would also like to know is there a way that we convert the NTFS partition to ext3 without losing the datas.

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:

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

I've then gone into fdisk again :
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:
mkntfs /dev/sda1
The blkid command gives me this output:
/dev/sda1: UUID="58CEA9511D6BCEFA" TYPE="ntfs"

I can mount the pendrive (as root) with:
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

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Freeze (hang) Ntfs Partition Read Write Access?

Jun 4, 2011

I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit desktop version on ext4 partition without swap. I have maximus iv extreme motherboard with 8 Gbytes RAM. Using 3 internal ntfs formatted hard drives and 3 external ntfs usb 2.0 hard drives.When I am trying to copy or move files FROM or TO any ntfs partiton it is 90 percent chance it is going to freeze.For copy/moving files I am using krusader run as ROOT or as user without root privilege or Nautilus as user without root privilege. It wasn't possible to switch to another terminal - it simply does not react on keyboard or mouse input and only hard reset is possible (scares me because of ntfs disks)From this point of view I have suspicious on ntfs driver but:I am completely beginner in linux and I am looking for help to navigate me how to investigate to find what is causing the problem eventually to solve it?

According to my experience it seems to does not matter if hard disk is internal or external connected through SATA II or SATA III or USB 2.0. I have tried to manipulate with ntfspartitions through the vmware or virualbox or truecrypt software or just do a simplecopy/move files - it have has always the same results - freeze. There is not possible to say how long it is going to work properly and when it is going to freeze - sometimes it's working hour, sometimes it's working couple of seconds - no matter if it is read or write operation/s within ntfs partition.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Write To NTFS From 11.1 Unless Superuser

Dec 19, 2009

I've got a triple boot system here (W7,XP,OpenSUSE 11.1). Several windows partitions are mounted as part of the standard opensuse install. I can write to them from opensuse only when I am superuser. I suspect I need to tweak mtab? Here is my ftab followed by mtab: Any ideas?

++++ etc/ftab +++++
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST31500341AS_9VS2CGVN-part5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST31500341AS_9VS2CGVN-part6 / ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 1
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST31500341AS_9VS2CGVN-part7 /home ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 2

OpenSUSE Install :: Can Only Write NTFS As Root

May 16, 2011

After the fresh installation of openSUSE 11.4 x64 (Gnome 2.32.1) my NTFS drives were mounted automatically. However, I can only write those partitions as root. I' ve already tried everything I found on the internet, but none of those solutions worked and as a rookie, I haven't got any idea how to proceed. My original FSTAB looked like this:


/dev/disk/by-id/ata-Hitachi_HTS545050B9A300_100708PBN403B7HMV4WL-part6 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-Hitachi_HTS545050B9A300_100708PBN403B7HMV4WL-part7 / ext4 acl,user_xattr 1 1
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-Hitachi_HTS545050B9A300_100708PBN403B7HMV4WL-part8 /home ext4 acl,user_xattr 1 2


I also installed ntfs-config and according to it my drives are supposed to be writeable (although that might refer to my root account). But none of the above steps made my NTFS partitions writeable for a non-root account. I restarted my system after each time I changed the content of FTSAB.

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.

Debian :: Unable To Access Ntfs Partition?

May 21, 2010

I recently formated my harddrive and instead of theld fat32 partition for windows partition I used ntfs. I am mounting this partition in /media/windows in debian linux. But it shows a cross (x) symbol above the folder and says I don't have the permission to access it. the permission on the folder is (drwx_ _ _ _ _ _ ) and it is owned by root. So I changed it to my user name -- sid by doing the followingsudo chown -R sid:sid /media/windowsHere are my questions1) Now it allows me to access the folders but all the files like pdf or photos have a cross on right top corner and it says access denied. Is this because of ntfs since with fat32 I didn't have this problem.

2) Also I have a /data (ext4) partiton which is a common partition for datafiles between Ubuntu and Debian. It has the permission -- drwxr_xr_x . I am trying to write to this partition and save files but it doesnot allow me to do it. do I have to make chmod 777 to do that?3) How do I make sure that both windows and /data partition are writable right from the beginning at the boot time.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Write To Partition?

Aug 6, 2011

I recently installed ubuntu 11.04. After installation, I created two ext4 partitions in my hard drive. My problem is that I can't create any files in these partitions. These partitions are not automatically mounted at boot time, but once I try to access them , they get mounted. I thought all this was managed by /etc/fstab file but I can't see any entry for these partitions there. So, I created an entry for both these partitions in fstab file with the following options: auto,user,exec,rw,suid,dev However, now when i boot, i see that there are two partitions already mounted as earlier and there are two more in the Places menu. I am not able to mount them since they are already mounted. And I still can't create any files in those partitions.

General :: Unable To Restore Backup On NTFS Partition

Jul 22, 2010

I used Ping Linux 8 months ago to create a ghost-like image of my primary partition. (Windows 7 on NTFS) The image is on the second partition of my hard drive (Western Digital 250 gig). I need to restore now, but Ping is unable to mount the volume. In fact, it will not mount any volume or perform any new backup. I made sure nothing has changed in Bios options since I created the backup. Does this imply that is not the appropriate tool to work on NTFS system?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Use NTFS Partition In Windows 7 64 Bits And GPT Secondary Table Moved

May 22, 2010

I have a 6TB external eSata bay (Lacie BigQuadra). I made a GPT table with only one big ext4 partition. All was ok. I resized the ext4 partition and I created a 1TB NTFS partition. I can use it on Kubuntu but Windows 7 tell me the partition is not formated. When I go back to Kubuntu, parted tell me that the secondary GPT table is not at the end of the disk and tell me it's probably an other OS that thinks the disk is smaller that its real size. It seems Windows 7 thinks the disk size is 2 TB (and modify automaticaly the GPT table and create a secondary GPT table on the middle of the disk).

What can I do to make my NTFS partition visible in Windows 7? What can I do to prevent Windows 7 to move the secondary partition table on the middle of the disk and to modify the primary GPT table ?

OpenSUSE :: Setting Permissions On NTFS Partition?

May 3, 2010

I've recently installed an OpenSuse 11.2 in what I'd like to be a definitive jump from windows environment.I'm not very confident yet with my linux skills, so at this moment I've yet have both systems installed with a data NTFS partition to store music, movies, documents, and general data that I'd like to use in any of the two systems. The NTFS partition has no writting permissions for anybody except root user, so I can't work anything from my personal user without starting an app like su or login as root. I want to change this by making a group (windowsWriters) where my usual user is included wich I pretend to make the group owner of NTFS partition.

I've created the group and inserted my user into it, but I'm unable to change the owner group nor any permission on NTFS partition or any of it's subdirectories. I've tried to made it through opening dolphin as su (Alt+F2 kdesu dolphin) and through chmod in consolemode logged as root, in both cases the action seems to work correctly and no error is spotted, however when I look again at the partition/folder/file permissions/ownership no changes have been made.

Software :: Changing An NTFS UUID - Restore An NTFS Partition From A Backup?

OpenSUSE Install :: "write" Access For Data Stored In NTFS?

Jun 20, 2010

I have acces to NTFS partitions from OpenSuse 11.2, and read data, yet I cannot write changes of it. I tryed to change "rw" attributes using "sudo", and was not possible. Even the windows version I had is 7, the NTFS partition I want to access for writing, comes from a previous XP install. Is there a way to have "write" access for data stored in NTFS? I recall an install I had on a laptop with Windows XP and Ubuntu... and Ubuntu was able to write on NTFS; would it be possible in OpenSuse?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Prevent That Particular NTFS Partition From Automatically Being Mounted

Aug 21, 2010

I have an NTFS partition problem which prevents me from installing openSUSE on my desktop computer. It's not a trouble with installation, it's a security issue relating to NTFS.I have a desktop running XP exclusive, but wish to also go dual boot but can not because I have created a NTFS partitoin on my HD wich I don't wish others to know about.After booting window$, I am able to successfully unmount the partition using Diskpart, which is a command line program within that OS. Once unmounted, it is effectively hidden from those who might be snooping until I manually remount it. Essentially I remove the drive letter which makes it inaccessible to Windows.

(Yes I know a person with proper skills can easily find it, but that's not applicable in my case for those who would look)If I install openSUSE which I desperately desire, it will automatically locate and mount the NTFS partition I wish to hide, making it easily accessible to anyone booted up in SUSE.Changing the attributes to the associated files to "hidden" is not an option. I need that secret partion to remain unknown.How can I hide, deny access to, or prevent that particular NTFS partition from automatically being mounted in Suse? Once that security issue is resolved I look forward to using Suse again, like the other people do in our home.
