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.

General :: Cannot Access USB Ntfs File System

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.

Server :: NTFS Drive - Read Only File System

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

May 30, 2010

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.

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.

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.

General :: Focus On Command Line Machine System, Network Basics, And File Management Knowledge?

Feb 17, 2011

As a strategy for learning linux I have decided to adopt using a lean windows based approach. I want to focus on command line machine system, network basics, and file management knowledge. In other words find out how desktop manager does it's business, so I know how to master my machine, but by and large once I have made my choices, leave it alone to do just that.

I figure I should know how applications are internally configured etc., but I also figure an apps GUI and config choices should take care of installations, and program usage as in M$ windows. Surely taking care of an applications dependencies are the responsibility of the developer, are they not?

I am working my way through "Rute User's Tutorial and Exposition (Version 1.0.0)" right now for an overall viewpoint. Can anyone suggest a specific source for a point by point explanation of the command basis of a generalised "desktop management" application (KDE,LXDE)? Better yet would be if it had some parallel comparison of the varied approaches taken by different distributions of linux.

A secondary question, is that allowed? Up to a certain point in Ms windows, a thorough knowledge of DOS 6.xx would theoreticaly enable one to more or less duplicate the actions of the windows overlay. Is there a basic distribution (or subset in all of them maybe?) of linux that would be consistent with that paradigm? What would be analogous to DOS batch files, or GM-Basic? Oh! that's 3.I am certainly appreciating the depth of this forum, and the breadth of knowledge among you forumite's. Reading it is time well spent.

General :: Transform A File On 1st Machine With A Tool On 2nd Machine In One Line Over Ssh?

Jul 14, 2011

I have some file tools on a mint machine that I would rather not install on my mac laptop. Mainly because of the vastness of apt-get and the low risk of installation failure. Anyway, every so often I have a file that I want to process in place using some remote tool. Both machines can ssh right in to each other so I was figuring there must be some script or tool out there that would allow me to type out something like remote [file] [tool & args] to send my file to the other machine, get it processed, then get it back.

Debian :: NTFS Backup - Create Ever Expanding (to 320Gb) TAR File That Will Retain All Original File Permissions

Sep 20, 2015

I want to back up an entire Linux system on a 3Tb external Western DIgital USB3 drive.

I do not want to reformat it from what it is, apparemtly NTFS.

Is there a utility that can act like a file manager like mc, that will permit me to create an ever expanding (to 320Gb) TAR file that will retain all the original file permissions. I have had nothing but disappointment with Linux backup utils with a FAT32 external drive, and I am concerned if I just try an tar the entire drive at once, with around 3 million files, I might run out of memory.

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).
