Ubuntu Security :: Files Which Are Created Automatically In One Of Ntfs Partition?

Jan 11, 2010

I'm a newbie despite using Ubuntu most of the time for nearly 3 years. There are some files which are created automatically in one of my ntfs partition. The files are khq, khp, kht, an autorun inf file and others. They seem to have been created while I was using ubuntu and even though I delete them,they appear again later. I have googled and have found few information that the files are malware. I will like to know if there is a known issue and solution. This is the first time i'm posting a thread.I hope i have post it at the right place and if not,

Ubuntu Installation :: Created Ntfs Partition, But Xp Won't Install?

Feb 1, 2011

I used gparted to create 60GB free space which I then formatted as ntfs. However,when I go to install XP I get the blue screen of death.I know the XP installation disc is OK.The ntfs partition (sda3) is after the ext4 partition (sda1) - could this be the source of the problem?

Debian Configuration :: Windows 7 Won't Read NTFS Partition Created By Raspberry Pi

Jan 10, 2016

I have a Western Digital 3TB USB drive connected to a Raspberry Pi 2 running Raspbian Jessie. I created an 30GB ext4 system partition and a NTFS Data partition using the remainder of the drive. I formatted the NTFS partition as follows:

sudo mkfs.ntfs -Q -L Data /dev/sda2

The drive works fine on the Pi but when I connect it to a Windows 7 pc the pc doesn't recognise the format of the Data partition and can't access it.

On the Pi I ran:
$ sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda2

Disk /dev/sda2: 2.7 TiB, 2968557453312 bytes, 724745472 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 4096 = 4096 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes

[Code] .....

Partition table entries are not in disk order.

Hardware :: Windows Vista Can't Read My Ntfs Partition Created By Mkfs

Oct 16, 2010

I'm dual booting windows vista and ubuntu hardy on a multi-partitioned Dell D630. I created a partition using mkfs -t ntfs. Linux has no trouble reading/writing to it, but every time I boot into windows, chkdsk tries to "fix" the partition, fails, and tells me that the partition is corrupted. Can anybody suggest a way to convince vista that the partition is indeed ok, or else another way to create the partition so that vista can recognize it?

Ubuntu :: Ext USB NTFS Disk Unable To Read Files Created Under 10.10

Feb 9, 2011

Using Ubuntu 10.10 (installed via mythbuntu) I'm unable to read or see files/directories created under Ubuntu. I think it started happening after a reboot to Windows. Some of the directories created under Ubuntu have disappeared completely and some of them produce the following error:
/media/storage/videos/Kids Videos$ ls
ls: cannot access Justin Bieber: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Octonauts: Input/output error
rest of directory is seen fine...

Same on some files:
ls -l
ls: cannot access Dirk Gently.mp4: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Dirk Gently.nfo: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Dirk Gently.srt: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Dirk Gently.tbn: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Human Planet: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Russell Howard's Good News: Input/output error
ls: cannot access The Planets: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Lost Land of the Tiger: Input/output error
total 300160 .....

Just to make it worse I copied more data onto the disk from windows so may have lost some it completely. It there anyway I can repair this? When trying to check under Windows it says it can't. Some of the missing files can be reloaded but others can't. Ran chkdsk /f under Windows XP. Some files have reappeared, but there has been a lot of unrecoverable files lost. Conclusion: Ubuntu 10.10 is badly broken for writing to NTFS. As I would like to share between Windows & Ubuntu using the external disk, I'm not sure what to do at this stage.

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.

Ubuntu :: Ubuntu 9.10 + NTFS-Config And Files Missing From NTFS Partition?

Apr 22, 2010

First off let me say that I love working with Ubuntu. It's a great OS to learn Linux on. Now on to my problem. I have a laptop that dual boots. Ubuntu 9.10 x64 and Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Been working just fine. I was using NTFS-Config to auto mount the Win7 partition during startup of Ubuntu. It has been running fine. I am able to move files between the linux partition and the NTFS partition with no problem. Now I've come across a problem. I big problem. Just this week I installed VirtualBox onto Ubuntu. I started creating virtual machines. 6 in all (3 Win 2k3, 1 2k8 and 1 Win7). I was saving the virtual machines to the NTFS drive as this was by far my largest drive. I used a directory titled "virtualbox" under the c:/users/public directory. This setup was working great. Was able to get my vm's patched and up to date. Created several snapshots. Basically I was a happy camper.

Last night I booted into Windows 7. OS started fine. I was just surfing the web. After that I rebooted the system and entered Ubuntu and started Virtualbox. I tried to start a vm and it complained that the virtual harddrive was missing. I checked to make sure that the path was correct for the virtual drive and discovered that the entire virtualbox directory that I created on the NTFS partion was gone!!! Everything else was in place and intact including music and large video files that I had downloaded to the Ubuntu partion and moved the the NTFS partion.

I save these virtual machines???? Should I abandon using NTFS-Config. This is somewhat critical since I had took sometime to create this test lab and to have it disappear from simply booting into Windows 7 is crazy.

Security :: Virus Infect The Windows Xp Ntfs Partition?

Feb 4, 2010

Let's say I have an avi file that contains a virus for ntfs windows xp sp3. I put that file on a linux ext3 partition. Then on a windows xp sp3 nfts computer, I connect to the partition over a network share via smb. I run the file within the share so the file is never physically on the windows xp sp3 computer. In this situation will the virus infect the windows xp ntfs partition?

Ubuntu :: Not Seeing All Files On NTFS Partition?

Security :: Group Write Access For Newly Created Files / Directories Without Changing Umask

Apr 3, 2009

I have several directories, each owned by root and a group of the same name,By setting the sgid bit, I made sure that newly created files and directories are owned by the correct group, and that directories have the sgid bit set too.On each newly created directory or file, the permissions are set to 755. This is because this is the default umask, and I cannot change a users umask. I actually only want files created below a particular directory to have group write access, inheriting this behaviour to newly created directories properly.I'm not on samba or NFS, I have to do this for SSH users.The filesystem is ext3.I started to fool around with ACLs, but couldn't find what I was looking for.

Ubuntu Installation :: Resizing Windows Partition - Install Files On A Non Windows NTFS Partition

Jul 22, 2010

Now however its not letting me resize the Windows partition, mounted or unmounted. It currently occupies the whole disk. I would rather not reinstall the whole thing over again, but I will if I have to. Isnt there an easy way to shrink a Windows partition? I swear Ive done this before and it wasnt this hard. Could it be a problem with the Mint installer that now asks me if I want to unmount my disks before it goes into install mode? On this PC I would like to have

Windows XP
One of the E17 OSs
Puppy Linux (to create a remix)

I am probably going to put most of the linux partitions on the second laptop drive but I want to install files on a non WIndows NTFS partition.

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 Security :: Accessing NTFS-encrypted Files And Folders?

May 14, 2010

After trying Truecrypt, LUKS, and Ecryptfs I decided to try NTFS encryption. Now, on a dual boot computer from Ubuntu I can browse the encrypted folders but can not open the encrypted files. All attempts produce access denials yet the Unix file permissions appear to be "0777" (owner, group, and world readable-writable).

Is there someway to get Ubuntu's NTFS software to recognize and decrypt the encrypted files? Would a different NTFS package work such as NTFS-3g?

Debian :: Using The Same NTFS Partition For Linux And Windows Files

Apr 15, 2015

I have installed Debian as a second OS alongside Win XP, and now I have Win XP on C drive (if viewed from XP), NTFS, my data files (mainly texts and graphics) on D drive (NTSF), and Debian on ext3. Debian sees and opens files on D.

1. If I read-write from-on this D partition from both OSes, is there a chance the data will be corrupted?
2. If I open a Windows-created TXT, GIF, JPG, HTML or other not-proprietary format file from Debian, edit it and save (just SAVE, not SAVE AS) - will this file remain readable from Windows?

General :: Scripting Copying Files From A NTFS Partition?

Jan 22, 2010

I record my lectures at school using my mobile phone then send them over wifi to my laptop and use a program to do volume correction all in windows. However, I want a exact copy of that folder in my home folder on my ubuntu install on a separate partition.I've been manually copying them over so far but I want to make a script that I can run to copy all new files over. I know a little bit about scripting, mounting the drive and actually copying files is easy, its figuring out how to determine new files and copy only those that I don't know how to do.

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 :: Delete Folders Or Files On NTFS Partition Not A Option To Move To Waste Basket

Nov 24, 2010

10.10 on a ext4 partition. I deleted a folder that sat on a NTFS partition that I use as data storage. I note that if I delete folders or files on this NTFS partition there is not the option to move to waste basket - it is just deleted. If the folder still exists on the hard drive (has not been over written) I may be able to retrieve it - but where could it be? On the NTFS partition?

Ubuntu Servers :: Apache User_dir Mod And Home Directories - Automatically Set When User Account Created?

May 28, 2010

I want to automaticly set the group ownership of user home directories to a group that the user is not part of. This is so that Apache can be part of this group and can access user public HTML directory, but other users are not able to access in any way the files in the users home directory. What I have seen that works manually is adding the user and then changing the group for the home directory. But I want to automatically set this when the user account is created. WHat I see happening is that when /etc/skel is copied, it automatically sets the group and ownership of everything to the users default group and ownership. I've seen some suggestions on setting permissions, but these don't seem to work because it seems that users are able to cd into a directory and not list it, but if they know the file name they can access the file.
