    hello all,

    If it is a NTFS partition then You can't delete it until You change mount options in /etc/fstab
    To do it open terminal
    type su
    type your password
    type gedit for GNOME and kwrite for KDE
    change "fmask=133,dmask=022" for umask=0002
    save it close and open new terminal
    type su
    type your password
    type umount for example /windows/D
    type mount for example /windows/D
    and after that You can write to /windows/D
    Hope i helped

    If it's ntfs, it also has to be mounted with ntfs-3g

    openSUSE 11 automatically mounts it with ntfs-3g

    what is the output of 'mount'

    Could be the partition is mount as read-only for some reason.
    Also do a 'su -' to log through as root and retry to delete.. is this does work your mount options are probably set to read-only for users.

    Good luck,

    Have a lot of fun!

    Install the 'NTFS confuguration tool' from YaST, two clicks and you are done mounting NTFS disks.

    so it doesn't matter wherever mount point I mounted it during opensuse installation?

    it does not depend on mount point. it depends on permission. what is the format(ext3, ntfs, fat) of the partition?
