Ubuntu :: Windows Partition Viewing - Windows Explorer Can't Read More Than The First
Mar 6, 2010
ive been dual booting ubuntu and windows for a while now. For the first time in weeks ive booted windows XP, and i really hate the fact that windows explorer can't read more than the first partitions. Is there a way to make the explorer see more? I want to be able to reach my files on the ubuntu partition from windows, not just the other way
[Sorry if this is misplaced; I just couldn't think which category to put it under.] So yeah, I'm almost exclusively using karmic (yay!), but I still have to use that vista install I have smushed in a corner of my HD from time to time. Now, I installed karmic using the default, latest file system (ext4, I believe it is, right?). Last I remember hearing, that presents a bit of a problem, doesn't it?
I have a linux formatted partition. I'm trying to open that partition inside windows 7. And shrink it so that I can have more space. But all the options except delete and help are grayed out. What do I do?
Tried ext2explore but it seems it can only perform a copy of the whole partition.
i've just installed the 11.3 while still keeping win 7. but i can't open the windows partition ,and even the massive usb storage device. i notice that by changing some syntax in the etc/fstba, i can make the system read the windows partition automatically once i start my PC. but how?
I have a dual boot system and am trying to be able to access all partitions in both OSs. I've tried some windows software that are supposed to be able to read linux partitions, but without luck. Essentially, my linux OS (rhel) is represented as an LVM partition (within the logical volume is ext3). In windows (7), file viewing programs see the partition as "raw". Is there any software that can read LVM in windows?
I'm having difficulty making my FAT32 drive capable of read/write. I followed the instructions here (http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Maverick#Windows_Compatibility) and added the following line to my /etc/fstab file:
Code: /dev/sda4 /media/WinD vfat quiet,defaults,rw 0 0 However, when I rebooted the drive is still read-only
I had installed ubuntu 11.04 on my system along with windows vista. After a few days, i decided to remove ubuntu so i just logged into windows and formatted the ubuntu partition using the windows partitioner, then extended my main c: drive to span the whole disk so that i was left with a single partition with only windows vista on it.Later when trying to restart my system couldn't log back into windows.I kept getting a prompt sayinggrub rescue>After googling around a bit i shrinked and created another partition the disk again and installed ubuntu on it again.still. =/GRUB doesn't show any windows entry.I noticed something strange though that when i tried viewing my partitions using parted i didnt see any filesystem type listed besides my windows partition (/dev/sda3). I doubt that is why GRUB does not show any windows entry.Also i manually tried to boot into windows from the grub prompt using commands...root(hd0,3)chainloader +1bootbut it says 'invalid signature'Did i somehow corrupted my windows partition during resizing and installing/un-installing? Plus i also booted with the windows installation dvd and when i typed bootmgr /fixbootit said something like no valid filesystem found.
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.
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?
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 Mint Ubuntu-Studio Edubuntu 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.
I got tired of dual booting on my old computer so on the new computer I am planning to run XP on VMware Player. The problem is that on the new computer neither Ubuntu or XP can "see" the FAT32 partition. I intend to use the FAT32 partition for photo images and old Windows files and need access from both Ubintu and XP.
I am currently running a dual boot machine with Ubuntu 11.04 and Windows Vista.Is there any way I can delete the Linux partition and Grub boot loader without affecting the Windows partition at all?I would also like to be able to repartition all of the space that was previously occupied by Linux.
I would like to read and write to a folder in an Ubuntu VPS remotely via a Windows Explorer (Windows 7 Ultimate). Considering that my VPS has very little resources (128MB RAM), what program should I use?
After several times install & reinstall,i got a stable dual boot vista / ubuntu 10.10.,but i can't access or even see my windows partition from ubuntu,i installed my dual boot with wubu this time,in previous installation when i didn't use wubi , i didn't have such a problem & windows partition with all my files in it (windows files,media ,etc,) was easily accessible from "places" on ubuntu . I already disabled windows firewall & other security options but nothing changed
I'm interested in viewing the owners of files on a Windows Server 2003 share (mounted on a Linux computer). These "owners" would be users in Active Directory. If it's not possible to see the username, I wonder if it will at least show a unique identifier. Currently it says all files are owned by root with an "ls -l".
I'st just installed 10.10 on Virtual Box. I'm trying to map some windows drives (On the host) permanently. Using Places->Connect To Server etc I can connect to my windows box no problem and see the directories etc in Nautilus (2.32.0) all ok.But rebooting the system results in my having to log in again - I've looked atis that the only what to get this to work permanently?Also, and more importantly K-Develop (And possibly others) can't see this mapped drive when I want to open a file from it? What would be the problem here?
I have Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows XP running each one in a partition of two different hard drives. I want to install Windows 7 in a second partition of the hard drive where Ubuntu is running. Windows 7 did not see the hard drive where Ubuntu is running. So I understand that I need to format the partition where Ubuntu is running, install Windows 7 and later on Ubuntu 10.04 which will create the boot for the three systems. But I want to backup Ubuntu's installation, and after installing Windows 7, install the backup. So I will need to add the file for the dual booting. How can I do it? Is it there any piece of software that could create the three booting option that I need?
When either of the proprietary Nvidia drivers are enabled, viewing the desktop using a remote client (Windows TightVNC) does not work. The initial remote screen display is ok, but no updates to the remote display occur. Reverting back to the non-proprietary driver solves the problem. I have also tried using a 10.04 Live CD and used Remote Desktop Viewer on the client machine, and it behaves the same way.
I'm using Karmic Koala 9.10 (amd64) on /dev/sdb6 and windows 7 on /dev/sda2. I mounted my windows 7 partition in Nautilus. I copied some files and made some folders from Nautilus onto my windows 7 partition. I tried booting into windows 7 but it failed on loading Windows 7. It then gave me a blue screen flashes and then restarted. The blue screen flashes so quickly i cannot determine the exact issue. I tried booting into windows 7 in Safe mode. It fails to load and gives what i believe is the same blue screen. I used to be able to read and write files onto my old XP and Vista partitions. Now with windows 7, I seems that I can't.
