Mount NTFS on startup as Read Write

Post by LordSaddler » Fri Sep 07, 2018 4:01 am

Hello, I have an NTFS Hard Drive where I put downloaded files on Windows. But I can't write on it from Linux. How can I do? How can I set it on Read-Write forever (on start).

Hi LordSaddler,

I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

FYI: You can also use the "Disks" (gnome-disk) program to easily mount drive partitions so that they are available when you bootup or login. This is usually installed, but if not install it.

- click the drive on the left, click the partition on the right that you want to have automatically mounted, click the "gear" icon below, select edit mount options, turn off the first option automatic mount or session, make sure "mount on startup" and "show in user interface" are checked, select an "identify as" option or leave the default (volume "label" is a good one), click OK. This actually updates the "fstab" file for you.



Hope this helps ...
