General :: Way At All To Copy NTFS Files / Windows Can't Even Open It
Jul 22, 2010
I'm having a problem with my hard drive. Windows can't even open it. I run DSL linux and successfully moynted the drive so I can view my file structure. I thought I just connect my other windows HD, mount it and then just copy all the folders I need. Unfortunatelly I'm getting cp: cannot create directory blabla - read-only file system. Is there a way at all to copy NTFS files in Linux?
I am making the transition to either Ubuntu or Kubuntu in the next couple days. I have been running the Win7 evaluation version which is pretty much just Win7 Ultimate.Two are internal, four are external. All of them are NTFS. So are my pen drives (512MB and 8GB). Will these Linus distros be able to access these drives? If so, to what degree? Everything I have read online so far seems to give Linux a mixed track record when it comes to working around NTFS security, etc.
Quite a few times i have boot puppy linux live and have tried to copy file from the underlying NTFS windows HD only to get an error like permission denied when i try and copy a file to say a USB stick, i think some files copy but i seem to get permission errors with some files.
My system has a 3-1/2 floppy drive. I do not know how to open it to copy files to a CD. My system knows itis there since booting with a data floppy gives a non system disk error. nce in Ubuntu, the floppy drive does not appear in "places computer".ince I am completely new to this system, I do not know how to proceed
I recently installed the latest version of Ubuntu to setup a home media server. Previously, I was running a Windows Home Server. I added a new HD and mounted it during installation. This was ext2. I think mounted my 2 drives that had NTFS partitions on them from the Windows home server and copied all of my files over to the new ext2 partition. Everything looked great. I then re-partitioned by two old Windows Home Server Drives to ext3 partitions to setup a new file system for storage.
This is when the bad news became evident. While all of my .jpg, .mpeg, etc. files are there on my ext2 file system, I can not open them anymore. All programs (IE, paint, windows media player, Itunes, Photoshop, MS Office, etc.) are unable to open files they normally process. Did I somehow lose part of the files (a header, attribute or something) during this copy process?
I am running some Pcap files through editcap and then tshark. I am running fedora 11. This will create a couple of thousand text files all numbered sequentially 1-x. How can I copy these files across a network(I connect using putty) or how can I copy them onto an external HD so that when I view them on the windows machine they have the right formatting (Windows know to open them with wordpad/notepad) basically that windows knows that they are text?
I need a command-line method of copying files from a Linux box to a Windows machine that is in a domain and requires authentication. I cannot install additional software or services on the Windows XP machine. I can install any software on the Linux machine. I've tried scp, but the connection failed and if my understanding is correct it is because scp requires that the target (windows machine) be running an ssh service. Is there a command-line linux utility that can pass Windows domain user and password and then copy a file from the linux machine to a share on the windows machine?
Lets say I log in to bash, open a file in vi, then using alt-f2 I open a new terminal. After logging in I navigate to a second file and open that in vi. How can I CnP between these two files?
I found this from [URL]. I'm not familiar with this command shift-8-y-y. I follow the vimtutor and use virtual mode. I tried this sequence and was unsuccessful.
And, I read this about registers. I found a mention of using double_quote-p to 'put' or paste the register, but this does not work in a different file. The second file reported the register empty.
Alternatively, I read in the VIM docs, it is possible to open multiple files under split screens. This may be a course to a solution. The need I often encounter has me navigating in a different bash window to find a file, then wishing to copy between the two. Whereas, I imagine, a split VIM window useful for files in the same directory.
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?
So I have an NTFS volume with many programs I (used to) use on a regular basis. Since upgrading to 10.10, I can't use them. Obviously, an execute bit cannot be added onto files on an NTFS volume. These are Windows programs that ran perfectly with WINE on 10.04. I have tried
Code: mount -o remount,exec /media/0A08B33E08B32819
It doesn't work. I do not have the luxury of installing PlayOnLinux to do the script workaround. The programs are too large to move to the EXT4 volume I have set up for Linux. I need a work around on this ASAP or I'm ditching Ubuntu for good. From the stupid "let's make the buttons on the left like Mac" (which I have switched back over, but it's still annoying) in Lucid to this glorious fail in Maverick, Debian is looking better and better. Besides, it's not like the packages installed in Ubuntu can't be installed in other distros.
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 have just installed Open Suse 11.4 Gnome, and I am trying to work on files on my windows partition that is ntfs, and it keeps telling me that they are "read only"......I check my /etc/fstab file and that it shows permissions at the end of the windows partions to be "0 0", which I was told was what was I needed to be able to work on ntfs files in windows?
I accidentally formatted a drive that was ext4 to NTFS in Windows (using quick format only). I tried TestDisk, it does find a deleted partition but doesn't seem to find any files or be able to recover anything. Is there any way I can recover the files?
I was follooing this instructions to repair windows system32 in this tutorial found in a previus tread, my laptop is Dell xps 2010 I had Ubuntu Live cd running with Internet,mouse and keyboard, The NTFS and NTFSProgs exist in System/ administration /synatip Package Manager,but i can mount the filesystem properly due the device name etc,thing i missing some code in terminal application.Partition table entries are not in disk order.Regard the repair of windows media center edition (windows system32 corrupted...).
I am an Ubuntu refugee. Allow me to explain what happened. I am dual booting with Windows 7 and F15 x64.
(1) I wanted to created a shortcut of my "Documents" folder in my Windows in Nautilus (2) I opened the Windows drive by double clicking the drive under Devices, and navigated to my "Documents" folder (F15 already has ntfs-3g installed so no hassles there) (3) I then dragged the folder to the sidebar to place it under the Trash icon--but for some reason, it would not let me do this, and accidentally got placed in the Trash bin. (4) problem is I can't see this folder in the Trash bin (it is not even hidden) (5) To check if the Trash bin actually captures items when we move files/folders to Trash, I tried sending a folder from my Home directory to Trash, and the folder appears in the Trash; it can even be restored to Home. (6) Only files/folders from the NTFS formatted Windows drive do not appear in the Trash folder if sent there. (7) I have Google searched this problem, but to no avail. (8) I even thought that because the drive is not mounted 'officially' I would mount it using command line:
(9) But still I can't see the folders in the Trash (10) Interestingly, when I try to unmount the Windows drive 'formally' then I get a message if I want to "empty the Trash"--I obviously chose not to--so I know there is my Windows Documents folder in there somehere.
I am runnig WinXP and OpenSUSE 11.4 on dual boot.Generaly i am using SUSE, XP only for UpNP Media Center(server) to watch movies stored on my computer on TV via STB.For this i am using TVersity for wich i not found yet Linux alternative - or better say - i found it but is too heavy for my PC(P4 1.6 Mhz, 768 MB RAM, an dinosaur from Nvidia Vanta with 64 MB RAM)But this is not a part of my question.My question is how to transfer(copy, move...?) files from SUSE to WinXP?A large files like avi, mkv, mostly movies.I solved this to copy them on USB and then from USB to Win.This is a very slow proces because my PC have only USB 1.0And before asked me - all files are legaly downloaded from paysites.From SUSE, partitions(disks), folders and files under WinXP are visible but is not possible to copy files on them - acces is denied.Is there any way to do this?Suse is insatlled on LVM - /root/home/swapI am interesting ONLY to copy files from SUSE to Win, not at al from Win to SUSE.Code:

Im trying to setup samba so that i can copy some files from my windows 7 machine over to the drive on the opensuse machine running 11.2. i believe i set everything how it should be set up but no matter what i do i cant write filesfrom the windows machine. Here is my smb.conf
# smb.conf is the main Samba configuration file. You find a full commented # version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE if the # samba-doc package is installed. # Date: 2009-10-27 [global]
I have have ubuntu 10.10 at work hooked onto a Windows Server 2003. I have pretty much everything working peachy except I can't copy files onto the network drive. When I start my computer, i have to manually go to network places and navigate around until i find my company share drive and then its mounted for the rest of the day. I can read files from the share drive and oddly enough save documents through programs like gimp and open office, however if i go through nautilus to try and copy a file from my desktop to the company share, it won't let me. It just says "Error while copying 'yourfile'" and the details just say "invalid argument."
1> i have centos5.4 fileserver. i synchronize my document of windows xp with fileserver through samba server. while synchronzing ,virus effected file are also get sync in fileserver . i scheduled copying in crontab also.meanwhile by synchronizing the fresh file get replaced by virus file.this result lost of my data.
is there is any solution to restrict virus file from copying through rsync....
2> is there is any program to compare size of files on samba server
I recently replaced my windows fileserver with one running Ubuntu. One thing I've noticed (which is a annoying) is that when I copy files between two samba shares from my windows machine, it copies the file through my PC to the new destination. On windows shares it just did some sort of local copy (ie it took about 2 seconds) rather than 3-4 minutes. Is this the normal behaviour, is there any way around it on Linux
When i installed ubuntu. I made a seperate partition so that i could copy an ISO image onto it of an up-to-date version of ubuntu. I wanted to then boot the ISO up so i could install the version that way.I've already tried doing it through the update manager but it'll download, almost be done with installing and it freezes on me. so i figured this would be easier. However i do not know how to gain access to the other partition to copy the ISO image.
When i try to copy files from my samba server (Ubuntu 9.10) to my windows seven media center, the speed is extremely slow. So slow that is better to download 100mb file from the internet, than from my lan. And on my lan, every card and switch is at 1000 mbps speeds on cat5 cables. And from XP or other linux machine
I have a PC with OpenSuse 11.1. Beside root there are two other users on the system. Now I have installed a new PC with OpenSuse 11.2. Only one user is set up until now. I installed the hard disk from OpenSuse 11.1 into the new PC on IDE Primary Slave, because I wanted to copy some files from the old system. OpenSuse 11.2 has mounted the old disk automatically in /media/disk and /media/disk-1. The problem is that I can't find any files or directories from the users. I could find only one file from root in /media/disk-1/root/Desktop. Why can't I see the files? Does it have anything to do with UID or SUID?
in my office we are using redhat server and 20 windows client machine. some times while viewing the server stored files or not able to view.yesterday i saw a problem all the files are showing but not able to open a single fine after restarting the computer iam able to open the file.
