CentOS 5 :: Can't Write To NTFS: Volume Is Read-only?

Aug 22, 2010

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?

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.

Ubuntu :: Keeping Files Moved From NTFS Partition To EXT3 Safe

Mar 13, 2010

Long story short, my Windows had a fatal crash the other day and since I couldn't find the installation disk, I burned the Ubuntu 9.10 disk image to a CD at a friend's place and installed it on one partition of the hard drive. The other partition contained tons of Windows programs and documents in an NTFS system. Ubuntu is cool and all, but when I finally found the Windows disk, I wanted to reinstall it for dual-booting, to use some programs that don't run well in Wine.

To keep some documents safe and not waste any CDs, I moved them over to the Ubuntu partition before installing Windows. As experienced ubuntuists know, the slightly clumsy Windows installer erases GRUB in the process, and it's recommended to install Windows first. So, now I ended up with a working Windows partition and an Ubuntu partition with all of the stored data, which I can access via guest status with the burned CD.

Here's the catch though - as a guest and without Linux properly installed I can't move anything I moved to the Linux partition from the Windows partition back anymore. All the folders have a little X on their top corner. I'd be glad to reinstall Ubuntu now, but I must know how to keep all that tranferred data safe. Can I keep it there during the reinstallation? Should I install Wubi on Windows and access the stuff through it?

Ubuntu :: 10GB Of Data Overwritten In NTFS Partition - Hard Disk Safe

Jul 22, 2011

So the first 10Gb of a 450GB NTFS partition have just accidently been written over with an Ext4 filesystem that spans the entire partition instead. all foolishness asside, what can be repaired. Now I know Ext4 likes to jot bits of meta-data down (inodes blocks) along the way, and this can be about 5% of drive capacity, that said, there's alot of small text files and stuff, coe files so forth that can surely be recovered

I've looked into magicrescue and testdisk, but they fall into the only two groups to exist:
1) Filesystem independent, that is search almost like a patern - well exactly like a pattern match, to find the header and footer of files.
2) Filesystem recovery tools, like, damaged bootsector, so forth

I need one, that will be able to extract files, Iunderstand this will be a hard task, but.... text files; surely that'll be easy, anyway. This is my backup drive, they''re both WD you see, anyway. This is important, given the coding is ASCII surely.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Write To NTFS - Operation Not Supported

Jan 17, 2010

I'm dualbooting XP and Kubuntu on my laptop, and want to move some files from my ext3 part to the NTFS part. Mounting it goes fine, but can't write, create folders, etc. to the NTFS part. Started looking for people with similar problems online and found the guide on this site, so I installed ntfs-config and went through the steps, checking "Enable write to internal device", etc. Still no good. I tried manually putting in the write option on the mount command, no flags comes up but konsole still says "Operation not supported." Dual-booting Vista and Kubuntu Jaunty

Ubuntu :: NTFS Write Speed Only 5 Megabytes Per Second?

May 22, 2010

Here's the line from my fstab that auto mounts my NTFS Windows drive:

/dev/sda1 /media/disk ntfs-3g defaults,umask=007,gid=46,noatime 0 0

When writing to the drive the max speed I get is 5 megabytes per second. I Googled it and tried some other posted Fstab lines but all disabled my write access for some reason even without "RO" in the line. Can someone please give me some guidance as to how I get the normal Sata HD transfer speed which is more like 55-75 megs or more per second or so?

Debian :: Can't Write To USB HDD With NTFS

Dec 26, 2010

The task is to create a TrueCrypt file on a buddy's USB HDD and copy a bunch of my stuff to the file. He runs Win7 so disk has NTFS. He has data on it that I don't want to compromise. Disk then goes back to him to run under Win7.The disk automounts just fine. Here's the mtab line:/dev/sdb1 /media/OneTouch440Plus ntfs rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,uid=1000.Read (as user) is no problem. It looks like I should (as user) be able to write to it but I can't. Permissions show user as owner but read-only and can't be changed by owner. I've tried an fstab entry and mounting from CLI but no luck. I have not tried to manipulate the disk files with chown/chmod out of concern I might compromise other files on the drive.

Ubuntu :: Samba NTFS Write Permissions Only Some Work?

Jan 14, 2010

From a Win 7 client, I can copy/create/delete any files on any share on the Ubuntu Samba server so long that is part of my nix file system which is all ext4.This box also has and NTFS partition on it primarily for storage. I can copy/create/delete anything on this partition form the same Win 7 client with the exception of Quickbook save files.I have scoured the web looking for anything close to this but have yet to find anything that looks similar. Not lloking for a direct answer but if there is anyone else that has issues copying specific types of files to a Samba NTFS partition.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Write To Samba Share (NTFS)

Aug 10, 2010

I have this samba share for ghosting images to (backing up computers at work) and I can read the ghost images just fine from the share, but I am unable to write to the share. From any windows environment I have tried, I get a disk is full error. I have 200GB+ free space, so this is not the actual issue. I believe there is a write permission somewhere that I am overlooking. My setup basically lets me log in under the username samba from a client machine.

Here is my smb.conf file:


#======================= Global Settings =======================
workgroup = discount.local
server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)


I've tried chown on /media/Images to make it owned by samba, but it just reverts once I remount the partition. Either that or my eyes are playing tricks on me.

Ubuntu :: Read And Write To USB?

Jul 18, 2011

I did install QLandkartGT and the plugin to use Garmin with it and it looks like it work, but when I do press "Live Log" I get the error message; "Device Link Error. Failed to request real time position. Realtime thread failed. Failed to configure USB: could not set config 1: Operating not permitted".

I also get a similar error when trying to download tracks; "Failed to download tracks. Failed to configure USB: could not set config 1: Operation not premitted".

My guess is that Ubuntu do not allow programs to use the USB port, so my question is how I do allow this program (or all) to use the USB ports.

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

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.

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

Slackware :: Can't Write To NTFS USB Drive In KDE4.6

May 11, 2011

I installed AlienBob's KDE 4.6.2 a few days ago to give it a shot.

I'm really satisfied with it and wish to keep it, but there's one thing bugging me : I can't write to my NTFS USB drives.

To be precise, I can write as much as I want to existing files, but I can't add nor delete files nor directories.

Worse, root isn't allowed either, even in runlevel 1 when mounted by hand (mount -t ntfs /dev/sde1 /mnt/foo).

Did I miss something to configure among the dependencies of KDE 4.6 ?
