Ubuntu :: Machine Is NTFS As The File System?

Mar 28, 2011

A drive on my Linux machine is NTFS as the file system. There's a file corruption issue of some kind for copying files from the drive to another or another PC result in I/O errors. Overall, I work with 2 systems, one Windoze, the other Linux. I'm about to switch the roles of the 2 machines. The one with the corrupted ntfs partition is about to become my Windows machine and the Windows machine is going to become Linux.

Since I will be installing Windows on the machine with the problematic ntfs partition, I'm figuring at some point, Windoze chdsk will kick in and fix the drive. (Windows will be installed to another drive that is perfect right now.)

Is this a correct assumption? Or, do I do everything I possibly can to fix the corrupt partition prior to the new Windows install? If this is true, what are my options for fixing corrupted files under Ubuntu? Research I've done hasn't yielded much in results and a definitive answer for fixing corrupt files in Linux.

Ubuntu :: Error Creating File System: Helper Exited With Exit Code 1: Cannot Open /dev/mmcblk0p1: Read-only File System

May 2, 2010

I bought a new SD card which I intend to put some MP3s on - except that I can't write to it because it tells me the destination is Read Only. No-probs thinks I: I'll just reformat it.

"Error creating file system: helper exited with exit code 1: cannot open /dev/mmcblk0p1: Read-only file system"

Various chmod commands all result in Read-only file system. I tried umount then mount commands, but it couldn't find it to mount once I'd unmounted it using the same /media/ file path (I assume it's the only one).

Feb 1, 2010

I have reinstalled my centOS linux in my laptop.

I have installed ntfs-3g by yum install fuse fuse-ntfs-3g recommended from :[url]

I have mount it to my window ntfs system and setup

Now I am able to access window ntfs system.

HOWEVER, I could not access to USB NTFS system. May I know why?

It gave me: The volumn "Expansion Drive" uses the ntfs file system which is not supported by your system

The USB drive is FreeAgent (500G). I have partitioned it to 3 parts. 1 part is ntfs. The other two is ext3. I can access ext3 smoothly.

Ubuntu :: Assign Permissions On A Partition With Ntfs As The File System?

Apr 6, 2010

can assign permissions on a partition with ntfs as the file system. I am aware of editing fstab and setting some basic permissions. What I am clumsily dictating is can you edit permissions of individual folders for specific users in Linux. I have already tried chmod and such

etc something similar to this

Code:
[user@computername user]$ sudo chmod 600 directory

Ubuntu Installation :: Mount NTFS File System In Wine?

May 4, 2010

Trying to mount my NTFS file system (portable hard drive) so that is can be recognized by a program I have installed in wine (seagate manager). I've tried to change the mount point for the drive to /home/.wine/c_drive but that doesn't seem to do the trick, and messing around with the fstab file just results in error messages when I try to mount/unmount the drive.

who to change the mount point properly? /dev/sbd1 is my partition.

Either that or does anyone know how to configure wine so that it will find my drive? I've tried adding an e: drive to the drives tab and mapped it to mediaSimons' Seagate (partition label), but that doesn't seem to do the trick either.

Red Hat :: File System Corruption - Super Block Could Not Be Read Or Don't Describe A Clear Ext2 File System

Jul 12, 2010

My Redhat Enterprise Linux 4 with 6x partitions (/, /boot,/home, /usr, /var, /tmp) of 6.0 GB IDE Hardisk was working quite fine. I decided to create LVM on /home and /var partitions but due to some errors occured and I delete the /home partitions. That's why partition table altered. I then delete 4,5,and 6th partitions (/home, /var, /tmp) partitions and now try to create one by one but following error is coming:-

The Super block could not be read or do not describe a clear ext2 file system. E2fsck b 8193 <device> I have tried following commands,but could not successful:- e2fsck -p /dev/hda7 (where hda7 was created but afterthat it was deleted) e2fsck -a /dev/hda7

Sep 21, 2009

I have a videos server here at work running Mandriva 2009 Spring and I need to copy a 10 gig file from it to a USB drive. The drive needs to be readable and writable from Windows. The file size rules out FAT, and when I try to write to it when formatted as NTFS I get an error about it being a read-only file system. How can I get NTFS support up and running?

Ubuntu :: Is NTFS A Good File System For A Shared Partition Between WinXP

Someone on IRC had mentioned they had a shared partition in NTFS, and that Ubuntu could read from it just fine... I wanted to get a second opinion before I did anything. Right now I have a WinXP partition and an Ubuntu partition, and a large NTFS partition in the middle that I'd like to move my /home to.

Software :: Convert Directory Structure From Long File Names In System To DOS 8.3?

Sep 2, 2009

I've been looking high and low for a utility program or perl script or something that can take a linux directory structure as input and convert it to MS-DOS 8.3 directory structure.

The purpose of this is to conform to the path format that is expected on my rather old Creative Zen Neeon MP3 player for m3u play lists.

General :: Mount NTFS Partition Deeper In File System With Fstab?

Mar 15, 2010

I'm dual booting with Windows 7 and would like to have my windows 7 user folder mount when I boot.

After some looking around I edited /etc/fstab to add the following line:

This works. But it mounts the windows partition from the root level. I'd like to just mount C:UsersFHSM (/Users/FSHM) to /mnt/windows.

I'm trying to get it so that when I click on the windows drive I get my windows user folder instead of having to click through from C: to get to it.

I'm the only user on this system but if I created a second windows user would my home folder mount for that person too or does setting the user ID prevent that from happening?

Networking :: Programs Cannot Create Temp Files On Nfs-mounted NTFS File System?

Jun 14, 2010

I have an NTFS file system nfs-automounted on our RedHat servers. Users can read and write to the file system no problem, and can create new files, edit them, and delete them to their heart's content. The only issue is that utilities such as "dos2unix" cannot create temporary working files:

$ dos2unix events.0818.dat
dos2unix: converting file events.0818.dat to UNIX format ...
Failed to open output temp file: Operation not permitted
dos2unix: problems converting file events.0818.dat

This isn't limited to "dos2unix"; any other utility that creates a temporary working file gets the same problem. If I copy the file to a local file system like /tmp, it works fine. Here's the kicker: this works fine on Solaris systems. I can take the "dos2unix" utility over to a Solaris system that has that exact same NTFS file system automounted via NFS, and it works. No issues creating temporary working files at all.

OpenSUSE Install :: Get A 64 Bit File System To Read 32 Bit File System Drives?

Feb 2, 2010

Have just assembled a new computer and thought I would install the 64 bit version of openSUSE 11.2 in a "Windows free zone". After a hiccup or two I have managed to get a system of sorts running but on trying to copy files from my old computer(via a memory stick) it tells me that Vfat is an unknown file system.On my old computer I am running 32 bit openSUSE 11.2 as a dual boot system with Windows XP and have no problems moving files between the two different file systems.Is it possible to get a 64 bit file system to read 32 bit file system drives and if so how do I do it?

Ubuntu :: Format "File System" To NTFS And Install Window 7?

Apr 10, 2010

I tried to install Win 7 from the DVD and it didn't work at first because my Ubuntu is not in NTFS which is require for Win 7 to start installing. But the Win 7 doesn't have the option to format the harddrive for me so I went back to Ubuntu to format it.

I downloaded GParted and NTFSProgs

The storage drive in the screenshot below the one I want to format but if I format that while I am running the Ubuntu OS, what will happen? Can someone guide me what to do? I can see there are two seperate virtual drives in that one 320GB SATAII harddrive. I want to erase the one with the more space because I'll install the Win 7 on it since it requires 15GB+ space. I do not want to have a dual boot by the way so I also want to make sure no Ubuntu is left out.
