I'm unable to change or modify any files on the ntfs partitions. I can't create a file in any of the folders and I can't change or delete any of the current files
I plan to switch to linux partitions in the future, but right now I don't have the space to do so.
I believe the problem is with NTFS config. I don't believe it properly created the "fake" set of permissions.
Unfortunately I now can't get ntfs-config to run. it just sits there.
I have removed the previous entries in fstab and rebooted. then tried running ntfs-config again.
When I ctrl-c out of it I get
