I am facing an issue in linux El4,I want to mount NTFS USB Hardisk to linux, I tried to mount but i got fs related error, after I have installed ntfs-3g, then i tried to mount through this command (mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb) but now i getting Fuse error, is there any possibilty to mount NTFS disk to linux EL4 without install Fuse.
Just ran into an uncomfortable problem. I usually never save any documents on my machine, and keep all my stuff on an external USB hard disk. (an 80GB TrekStor DS microdisk q.u) Well yesterday this disk just would not mount. Read through related posts but nothing seemed to work. Even tried it on a Windows machine.
Tried TestDisk utility. Found nothing wrong with the drive, but still could not repair the MBR.log code...
Palimpsest Utility recognized the drive, but just will not let me do anything with it except format it.
How can i repair the partitions and MBR without losing all my data?
Since I installed Debain Squeeze with KDE (for more than a month), there is something I cannot explain to myself. 5-10 minutes after bootup my hard disk begins to work very intensely. Then, after 2-3 minutes it comes back to its normal operation. Using "atop" I found out that the first process that squeezez my HDD is "find". Then, a little bit later, mount.ntfs-3g appears. Both do what they do, then exit and everything's back to normal. What I suppose, is that that something is searching, first on the Linux partitions, then on the ntfs partitions.
Does anybody know what is this phenomenon related to? Or at least, how could I find out. Ah, and to avoid some basic troubleshooting questions: I have 3 GB of RAM, so no swap is needed. And I repeat: it's find and mount.ntfs-3g that use the HDD.
--- WinXP NTFS partition --- a vfat partition (mounted onto /fat32) --- Installed F10 on ext3 virtual partition
B. I do not want install grub-loader in the Master Boot Record (that would loose my WinXP boot-loader for ever)
C. I have installed grub boot loader in the First Boot Sector
D. Now I have to boot using Rescue Mode, do:
1. dd if=/dev/sda2 of=/fat32/linux.bin bs=512 count=1 2. mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /ntfs 3. cp /fat32/linux.bin /ntfs 4. modify /ntfs/c/boot.ini and introduce the statement 'c:linux.bin="Linux"'
Problem: Im not able to do step D.2 above.
Symptom: ** after booting linux using the Rescue Mode: sh-3.2# chroot /mnt/sysimage sh-3.2# uname -r 126.96.36.199-117.fc10.i586 sh-3.2# mount -f ntfs /dev/sda1 /ntfs FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/188.8.131.52-117.fc10.i586/modules.dep: No such file or directory ntfs-3g-mount: fuse device is missing, try 'modprobe fuse' as root sh-3.2#
* The rescue mode boots into i586 based kernel (I dont know what is the actual difference between i586 and i686 - will really appreciate if anyone can educate me about it). * The installation is only a i686 image and consequently there is *only* '/lib/modules/184.108.40.206-117.fc10.i686' dir and *no* other dir. There is no dir as xxxx.fc10.i586.
Just installed opensuse 11.3 Kdeversion on my laptop. Before installing it on live mode i had a problem of accessing my other drives (NTFS, FAT32 and EXT4) which said HAL system policy...etc mounting error. I could access all drives with root privilege. I thought problem will be solver once i install opensuse on my system. How ever i was really disappointed after seeing the same problem post install. Googled around for the solution and got this link
After this the problem got worse now i am not able to see any of the drives in the side panel. Gone through many forum and posts all discuss about external USB HDD.
I am trying to setup fstab to automatically mount my NTFS partitions. I have used various Mount managers to create the entries in fstab. The fstab seems fine, but when mounting at boot or even via Nautilus I get the error message that I do not have permission to mount the disk.
1) Can this permission be set in the fstab file? If so what is the syntax of the fstab entry?
2) If not, is there a tool i.e. GUI to set the mount permissions?
Can mount.ntfs and mount.ntfs-3g reside simultaneously?
Whilst accessing an external NTFS drive mount.ntfs takes up a lot of CPU. I am not sure if its mounting the drive using mount.ntfs or mount.ntfs-3g? How do I find out and if they coexist how do I make the default mount drive ntfs-3g?
ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/sdd7 ntfs_mst_post_read_fixup: magic: 0x00000000 size: 1024 usa_ofs: 0 usa_count: 65535: Invalid argument Record 6 has no FILE magic (0x0) Failed to open inode FILE_Bitmap: Input/output error Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1': Input/output error NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for more details.
I need to resize a NTFS partition in a disk for which I have an image (dumped with dd).
I mounted it through the loop device on linux:
# losetup -o 32256 /dev/loop0 disk.img # I got the offset from looking at fdisk's output # mount /tmp/t /dev/loop0 # ls /tmp/t [content of NTFS partition shows correctly] # umount /tmp/t # gparted /dev/loop0
gparted shows me the disk correctly; it just contains one large NTFS partition I want to shrink.
I have it had it running for one hour now.
Question: will this work? There is lots of disk access but the timestamp and size of the underlying file disk.img remain unchanged.
I tried to mount a drive via ntfs-config and the following error occured:
Mounting /media/mOVIES failed because of the following error:
Failed to read last sector (146876415): Invalid argument HINTS: Either the volume is a RAID/LDM but it wasn't setup yet, or it was not setup correctly (e.g. by not using mdadm --build ...), or a wrong device is tried to be mounted, or the partition table is corrupt (partition is smaller than NTFS),
I have reformatted my hard drive with allocation size 64K(formatted on windows with 64k setting) for a better performance on my WDTV HD media player(dealing with large files).When I mount this drive on Linux, the properties tells me that"blksize=4096".If I keep writing files using this default setting(blksize=4096) to my NTFS formatted hard drive, will my WDTV be able to benefit from the performance improvement of 64k allocation size ?I am confused, Does it have anything to do with "blksize=4096". ?Should I try and mount my hard drive with a larger blksize ?I did some research on google but couldn't find an option to increase the blksize when mounting an NTFS pre-formatted drive
I dont know anything about linux and just been assigned to amount a drive to it. here's what i did so far: Version of Linux using Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.3 (Tikanga) [root]# mount -t auto /dev/sdb1 /tmp/archive mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'
when checking the /proc/filesystems, i noticed that 'ntfs' is not listed there, several forum suggested i try running 'modprobe ntfs'. If that is not found, you'll need a kernel with ntfs support. i'm so lost, where to i get the modprobe ntfs
I want to automatic mount a ntfs partition after start. I work on fstab, everything seems to be ok, but now something strange is happening: sometimes after boot, when I use fdisk, I find all the partitions as sda, sometims they seems to appear as sdb. Of course, if in fstab I have written sda and they are sdb, they will not be aoutomount... I am using fedora 14 I was expecting that allways the partitions to be sda or sdb.
I am using CentOS 5.5 OS. I already install ntfs-3g rpm, but I don't know the command to mount network NTFS drive. I also want to mount it on my fstab file, so whenever it reloads, it can automatically mount on the specific folder.
my external HDD of 750GB bring me an error during mounting!it asks me to get to windows and reboot twice or cmd chkdsk/f of which when i do it only option comes is to format it, i do not wanna format it coz it's with a lot of ma useful data!am using debian just asking if its possible to retrieve ma data from it using commands persay and what are those
