problem with ntfs partition permissions in mint 19.2

Post by nitto » Fri Sep 13, 2019 1:00 pm

First of all, two days ago I updated mint 19.2. I have a dual boot with windows (I almost never use it) and I have a shared ntfs partition so I can see my files from both operating systems. I have been using mint for two years, although I am not very expert using the console. the problem: I can't give write permissions to that partition (I can read, copy to other partitions, but I can't create or paste into it). I have tried many things that I have seen in the forums, I have tried solutions from other forums but the problem persists. Some solutions that I have seen on the web are really very complete, but they take it for granted that the reader knows a lot about Linux command handling. In advance thanks for the help.

Hello nitto Image

Welcome to Linux Mint and the Linux Mint forum :)

The first thing we need to know is how you're mounting the NTFS filesystem :?:

Can you provide an example of what you already tried :?:

boot into windows and then do a proper shutdown, then boot again into windows and shut it down again
