RW-->ntfs NG

Postby Branta on Fri Nov 09, 2007 7:15 pm

Version 3.1 Celena.

I am the only user and administrator.

/dev/hda has 2 linux systems on it

/dev/hdb has a MS Vista and 2 Linux systems on it.

I can see the contents but cannot write on the ntfs/Vista partition Data/dev/hdb1

From root on the "Data" icon a right click-->properties gets this error:
Couldn't change the the permissions of "Data" because it is on a read only disk.

Here is /etc/fstab
Code: Select all
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.

What do I do?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You have
Code: Select all
# /dev/hdb5
# /dev/hdb6
# /dev/hdb7
# /dev/hda1

One of these is your Vista I believe. Remove it and check that you have chosen mintDisk to mount ntfs and fat
This is different in Daryna as Gutsy has built in support for ntfs
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
