Ubuntu :: Can't Access Windows Files / Though Hd Is Mounted
Jul 10, 2011
i just installed ubuntu, i am having a problem in accessing my windows files. Now as you see the 500 gb hd is mounted, but when i go to places it shows that i have 2 500 gb hds, none of them is actually the one that i have the windows system on it or my files.i looked throughout the whole web, i need your help if you know how can i access my windows files.
It's the strangest thing, I've done this on a couple othervers with no issues whatsoever... here goes:I need to mount a windows share to copy some files to it, so I used this command which gets no errors:
Code: sudo mount -t smbfs -o username=XXXXX,password=XXXXX,domain=XXXX.com //192.168.12.30/operrors /home/XXXX/scripts/operrors
I have both Windows And Ubuntu 11.04 installed. Right now I'm using Ubuntu, but when I wanted to listen to my music I can't seem to find it. It is located on the C-drive in Windows, but I can't find any ways to access that drive. I've also just started using Ubuntu (like 2 hours or so) so I do not know much about it.
I am a new users to Linux and I am using Ubuntu 11.04. In my laptop, I have two logical drive C: and D:. I have installed Windows XP in C drive and Ubuntu in D drive. From Ubuntu, I can mount the C drive and can access the files I stored there when logged in Windows. But from ubuntu, I can't access or see any files I stored in D drive when I logged in Windows. Even I can't mount the drive from Linux.
I have Windows 7 64bit and Ubuntu 10.04 dual booting on one machine.I'd like to access my Windows 7 files from within Ubuntu (and preferably vice-versa). I've not been able to find any tutorials online to tell me how this is done. There seems to be many tools for Win to Ext2/Ext3 but nothing really providing the solution I need.
My company runs a Windows server. I can connect remotely via a very slow desktop emulator program in VirtualBox or I can just VPN and access whatever files I need. #2 is the preferred option.
So far I have officially setup the VPN and everything. It logs in. It gives me the little lock symbol above the Network Manger icon. I'm connected!
How do I actually access the darn files available via the VPN? We keep most files on a single server for the company. Internally, it looks something like "//Bob/Folder/". At the office I have the shortcut set to the "folder" portion of the above since that's where things are located.
I'm not seeing anything related to the VPN in Nautilus, under Network... squat. I've tried several methods of using the "Places > Connect to Server" function while setting it to "Windows Share" as well. Honestly, I'm unsure if this is appropriate nor what to put in the fields (Server, Share, Folder, User Name, Domain Name) if this is the right place to be.
When I first start up my 2 computers once the network is established if I try to acces the Ubuntu shared folders from the Win XP machine I get this error:"\localhost not accessible. You might not have permission to usethis network resource.t the administrator of this server to findout if you have access permissions.You were not connected because aduplicate name exits on the network. Go to System in Control Panel tochange the computer name and try again."If I first access the Windows shared files and then go back to the Win machine I get the password prompt and all is well
I have a Windows PC that I'm trying to access from my Karmic Laptop terminal. I've got them connected over the network and have the drive in the Windows machine mounted, but I just can't find it in the filesystem. I'd like to write some scripts to move some files around, but am obviously off to a bad start.
I would like to know if there is a way that I can access my files on the Windows partition using Linux because the Linux partition does not have enough space to house all the files on the Windows partition.
I can't access my files on windows from ubuntu anymore. I was able to do that some time ago, I'm not sure what changed. I can see the shared folders, but when I try to open them, and authentication window appears, asking for the login, password and work group. It doesn't get passed that even though I enter the correct information.
I have my ubuntu comp setup as a media server and works fine with mythtv etc but I also want to access the files from my computers in the other rooms (most have windows 7). I was able to share the file containing the videos easy enough by right clicking the file and checking all of the sharing options the first time. I have been able to access all the files that i originally put in the folder and stream video to my other computers without issue.
However any new files I add to the folders I am now unable to access. The files show up but when I click on them it says I don't have permission. I have tried unsharing the folder and redoing it but I come to the same issue. I am sure I am just forgetting an easy step but I can't think of what that is. Also want to make sure that any new files I add to this folder will work instantly across the network.
I am trying to access my Windows 7 files from Fedora 15. can view the Windows network from Linux and it displays the laptop fine. I can view the folders on the Windows 7 laptop but I can't access/open them. I receive an 'Unable to mount file' message in Linux. I have Samba installed and running fine. Is there something I have to change in the Linux firewall or samba.conf?
I had Windows on my machine but I decided to try Ubuntu 11.04. I kept my partitions where I store music, movies and stuff and it is OK, I can open anything, but I can't open the files that were in a hidden folder. I see then, I can browse my Windows hidden directories, but I can't open the files!
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 work in an office with individual p/c's (all with windows xp) connected to a windows server. i have installed opensuse 11.2 on my work's p/c (as a dual boot) but have no idea what to do so that i can access files on the windows server. can some kind person point me in the right direction.
I am dual booting OpenSUSE and Windows 7 Pro x64. Each OS is installed on a separate 1Tb hard drive. One question that I have tried to Google for a solution with no success is, how do you access ext4 from Windows? Shortly after I installed OpenSUSE, my OpenSUSE hard drive "vanished" from Windows 7. aturally, I can access all my hard drives from OpenSUSE, which does support the NTFS. I am quite sure that I am not the only person who has this problem as I know that dual booting Linux and Windows is quite common.
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.
I'm new to Linux and I was running Windows Vista before. I mounted my Windows hard drive into Ubuntu and now whenever I try to long onto Windows I get a black screen with the mouse where the log-in page should be. I used all the commands that was I had read about like "sudo mount" and stuff and I can see my Windows files in Ubuntu but no log-on page for Windows.
I am looking a way to access my windows vista files (documents and pictures) in opensuse. I have a problem my Vista doesnt load anymore and I really need to recover some files from it before formatting.
I know very very veeeery little about linux. I installed few month ago but then didnt have time to really work on it. I checked on google but it's more confusing.
I have three partition. One is for Vista home edition 64 bit, the other one opensuse 11.1 and a third one for dell stuff (not sure what is it exactly )
