SUSE / Novell :: Permanently Mount NTFS Drive With Read / Write Access

What is the best way to "permanently" mount a windows ntfs drive on suse 10.0 for read/write access? I use samba but I can't seem to find a way to mount the drive "permanently". Is it safe for my NTFS drive?

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

SUSE / Novell :: How To Mount External Hard Drive?
I using Suse 10.3. When i use i system, i do not use as root user. Mount a external hard drive requires me to open a terminal and log in as root. After logging in as root, i type this to mount the sdb1 to directory /media/root.However this method only enables the root to view the contents in the external hard disk. How do i mount so that i when i log in as a user to view the contents of the external hard drive?

General :: Won't Let Mount An External Hard Drive As Read/write
I try

mount -t ntfs -o rw /dev/sdb1 /mnt/exthdd

it doesn't give me any response so I presume it succeeded but when I try to touch it, it tells me it's a read-only file system

General :: Fstab Line For Auto Mount Drive That All Users Can Read/write?
I have installed a cable that connects from the CPU's SATA motherboard connection to a removable drives' ESATA connection.I would like to be able to swap drives on the ESATA connection and have all users be able to read and write to these drives.I have created the directory /archive/ where I would like the drive(s) to mount.The drives are all formatted Fat 32 - but in the future I may use HFS for formatting.When I used the command (as root):mount /dev/sdc1 /archivethe drive was mounted (but read only)What can I use in my /etc/fstab file that will allow drives to be mounted and unmounted by all users on the system? (both reading and writing)Also, will I be able to mount and unmount these drives without shutting down? or will I need to reboot every time I want to change drives?

General :: Failing NTFS HDD - Will Ddrescue Read And Write To Windows NTFS Drives
One of my hard drives is failing. I would like to get some data off it. I backup regularly, but am missing about 1.5 weeks worth of data. Sometimes the drive clicks and fails to operate, and if it does operate, it has a few errors here and there.My failing drive runs Windows XP with a NTFS format. I would like to image the failing drive using ddrescue (I've read that works good) to another NTFS hard drive with more than enough space on it to hold data from the failing HD. I don't even know if this is possible or how to go about this.

* Can ddrescue read from Windows NTFS and write to a NTFS hard drive?

* What do I need to download so I can boot ddrescue from floppy or CD-ROM so I can image one drive to another (perhaps a partition on another)?

* Do I need to download a Linux boot disk or something with ddrescue on it?

* Are there any free or open source Windows programs that do what ddrescue does? This data is important to me, but not important enough to spend a fortune on. It represents about 40 or more hours of work. As a note, I can only get the failing drive to operate if it is set on the primary IDE ribbon and in the first position.

Ubuntu :: Permanently Mount NTFS With Open Permissions?
I installed a new media drive that I will be using to share with a windows 7 laptop using samba. After days of frustration, I figured out that the sharing is not working because I have to set the permissions for the NTFS drive when it is mounted. Once it is mounted, using chmod, chown or right-clicking in nautilus does not work. As a result, when I try to access the files from my windows laptop, it keeps saying that it can't find the share (due to the permission issue). How do I change the fstab to automatically mount the ntfs drive, and have completely open permissions (read/write/execute by everyone)?


UUID=28ASDFGF4AABFA4 /media/media ntfs-3g defaults,blksize=4096,umask=0000

SUSE / Novell :: NTFS Disks Are Empty?
How and when it happened I do not know. But some days ago I tried to copy some files from my NTFS disk and I cant. The disk is empty (really it is not). I have 3 NTFS disks on my system and one with Suse on it. Until now I could normally access all my disks. Now I can access them but there are no files/directories on any one of them (as seen from SUSE).And in my fstab there are entries which I do not know how they come there. Here is my fstab file:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>

SUSE / Novell :: Navigating In 10.2 & Are NTFS Drivers Avail
I had trouble in konquerer to navigate beyond /home and I didn't get to access my ext3, Fat32 and my NTFS data partitions. Is the NTFS read/write driver already installed in suse 10.2? Also in Ubuntu, I can access the whole Suse partition and it's files in /home for example. Can I do the reverse in suse (JAD 1.0)?

I need confirmation that the NTFS for linux driver is included in Suse 10.2 or easy to install now since I am thinking of changing my only Fat32 partition to NTFS since I had trouble with shared folder permissions in FAt32. Yes, I also use windows.

SUSE / Novell :: Install A D-Link Access Point On Suse 11.0?
how to install a D-Link Access Point on Suse 11.0 or steer me toward documentation that will do that? I configured the device on XP following instruction from this forum and the AP configured perfectly.The AP is plugged directly into the network port on the computer. It *should* function correctly without a router. I tried a restart and Suse has no idea it's there. The computer is currently configured for a wired connection which needs to be changed. The computer itself is going to be used as a small home storage server.

CentOS 5 :: Can't Write To NTFS: Volume Is Read-only?
I installed CentOS 5.5 32-bit with Gnome and want to use it as a file server. The volume I wish to share is a 1.5TB NTFS partition stored on a USB drive. I installed "ntfsprogs" and "fuse-ntfs-3g" to get NTFS support. However, I only have read access to the volume.

How can I fix this and get Read+Write to the NTFS drive?
